How to Make a Crochet Rose

Right and Left Handed Video Tutorial, Free Written Pattern and Chart.

Plus downloadable PDF Pattern and Chart.


This rose pattern is one that I've been making now for about 10 years. It's quick to make, with only 2 rows and is then stitched around into a spiral afterwards. I've made so many of these, as embellishments, gifts, present toppers and corsages, that I've lost count of how many I've made!


For this pattern I've made both a right handed and left handed version of the video, plus a written pattern that includes my crochet chart for the rose as well.


Use either 13 stitch-markers or short lengths of yarn.

Materials

Small amounts of (UK) DK Yarn.

A 4mm hook.

Wool Type sewing needle.

Scissors

13 Stitch markers or 13 small lengths of scrap yarn in a different colour.




Markers in place before starting Row 2.

TOP TIP: One of my tips for making the rose is to use 13 padlock style stitch-markers or 13 small lengths of yarn in a different colour, whilst working row 1. Placing them in each 2 chain loop will help you identify exactly the correct points in row 2, to work each of your petals.

CHAIN:- Make 42 chain.


ROW 1:- Miss 5 chain from the hook and make 1 treble in the 6th chain. (One loop made). Place 1st stitch marker or thread in this loop.


*Now make 1 chain, miss the next 2 chain and in the 3rd chain work 1 treble, 2 chain, 1 treble. This 2nd loop you’ve made is a V-Shape and the rest of the loops will all now be this V-shape). Place 2nd stitch marker or thread in this V-shape loop just made.


Repeat from * 11 times and you will have reached the end of the row and have 13 V-shaped loops in total.


ROW 2:- Make 3 chain and turn to work the second row.


In the 1st loop remove the marker and work 5 treble to make a shell. (One petal made). Now make 1 double crochet in the next 1 chain space.


In the 2nd loop remove the marker and work 5 treble to make a shell. (Second petal made). Now make 1 double crochet in the next 1 chain space.


* In the 3rd loop remove the marker and work 7 treble to make a shell. (Third petal made). Now make 1 double crochet in the next 1 chain space. Repeat from * twice more.

You now have 5 petals in total.


** In the 6th loop remove the marker and work 9 treble to make a shell. (One petal made). Now make 1 double crochet in the next 1 chain space. Repeat from ** 6 more times.

You will now have 12 petals in total. In the last loop work 9 trebles and fasten off.

(13 petals now made in total.)

MAKING UP

Thread a piece of yarn approximately 20” (50cm) on to a wool needle and roll the 2 smallest petals around to create the centre of the rose. Sew through all the layers to secure into place. Now continue rolling the petals around and stitch through all the layers as you go, until the last petal is stitched into place and fasten off.


Happy crocheting and enjoy making your roses!
