Easy to Crochet Rose

Adding a Crochet Rose to any item is a beautiful way to embellish your hats, scarfs, blankets, etc.  This crochet rose is easy to make.  It has become one of my favorites crochet rose and I really like how easy and fast it is to make.   You can use any size hook (appropriate for yarn weight) and any type of yarn. To make this large rose 4″ (10cm) I am using a size J/10 6.00mm and medium weight yarn.  You can adjust the size by changing up the size of your hook.  The larger the hook, the larger the rose.  The smaller the hook the smaller the rose.

Easy to Crochet Rose

Easy to Crochet Rose Instructions:

To begin:  Chain 74
Row 1: 1 hdc in each chain beginning in 2nd chain from hook. 
Row 2: ch 3, skip 2 st, sc, *skip 2 st, sc* repeat from * to * to end of row
Row 3: (1st third of ch-3 spaces),  ch 1 (counts as sc), [hdc, 3 dc, hdc, sc] all in same ch-3 sp, *[sc, hdc, 3dc, hdc, sc] all in next ch-3 sp*, repeat from * to * for your remaining first third of work (stop when you reach your stitch marker). 
Row 3: (2nd third of ch-3 spaces), *[hdc, 5dc, hdc] all in next ch-3 sp*, repeat from * to * for next 1/3 of stitches (stop when you get to your next stitch marker)
Row 3: (last 1/3 of ch-3 spaces), *[hdc, 7 dc, hdc] all in next ch-3 sp*,  repeat from * to * to end of row, fasten off
Sewing the rose together:  To begin:  Roll strip like you would a fruit roll-up.  You will begin sewing the bottom edge of the strip (on the first row of hdc) the petals will remain free.  Work a little a time.  This is the wrong side of your work. 
 Keep rolling and sewing your rose to your previous rolls… your piece will be taking shape on the reverse side.   To see a video tutorial you can go to my YouTube video tutorial.   When you finish rolling up and sewing your row (bottom edge)  sew in your tails.  You can now sew on a clip or  just sew your rose onto a hat, scarfs, etc.   I prefer to sew  a jewelry type of brooch pin to the back of the rose.  This allows me to remove the rose from my item in order to be able to wash my items or to use my rose on multiple pieces.     I hope you enjoy this Rose.
