Crochet Rose (Free Pattern)

Crochet Rose (Free Pattern)

Roses might just be the most popular flower in the world. We use them in a variety of situations, from honoring achievements (recitals, performances, etc.) to celebrating occasions like weddings and anniversaries and as everyday reminders of love, romance, and beauty. They come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, though of course red roses are the most traditional.

If you’ve got a little time on your hands and some pretty yarn in your stash, you might want to make a bouquet of these for yourself or a loved one to commemorate an occasion or just to say, “I love you”. It’s a simple gesture, but it holds a lot of meaning and sometimes, all one needs to brighten one’s day is a single rose.

Kati Crafts has a fantastic tutorial with photos for a standard rose, as well as some ideas for alterations if you want a larger or smaller size rose, which would be useful if you were making a bouquet, as you’d want to vary the sizes a little, as well as the fullness. With her tutorial you’ll need to know the following stitches: chain (ch), single crochet (sc), and double crochet (dc). She also has some unique abbreviations, such as space (sp) and stitch (st).

There’s no limit on what kind of yarn to use, but Kati Crafts suggests using a thinner yarn, such as Novita’s. You might also want to experiment with texture, such as mohair, alpaca, and angora, though the pattern uses cotton yarn, and the color options are endless. You might want to start out with a traditional color, such as red, pink, or yellow, and then branch out into using variegated yarn or even something like black or yarn with fringe or beads.

The only materials you’ll need are yarn, a crochet hook, scissors, and a tapestry needle to stitch up the rose at the end. You can also shape it to the desired fullness. These roses would make great additions to other projects such as embellishments for purses, hats, and cowls, or could be strung together as a garland, or added to a centerpiece or bouquet with other crocheted flowers. Use your imagination!

    DIY Birdhouse ... or Bird Trailer

    by on October 6, 2017 - 0 Comments

    My family loves birds. My grandma and grandpa live in the hills between North and South Carolina, and when I call I always ask my grandparents what birds have been around. They usually have chickadees, wrens, cardinals, and tufted titmouses (which happen to be my favorite). My dad loves hummingbirds and has several feeders on […]

  • Crochet Wallets

    I’ve been looking for a new wallet for months. My old wallet is a particular favorite, picked up at Target because it was a small, blue pleather item with a black French Bulldog on it with red glasses and a bowtie. After a few years, however, the pleather is wearing off and the design is […]

    Try These Knee Highs On For Size (free crochet pattern)

    by on December 8, 2017 - 0 Comments

    I always get really excited when I find knee highs. There’s something about long socks that makes me feel fancier — and they keep you warmer, especially if they’re under jeans. Cold jeans are the worst. It has been more difficult to find thick, comfy knee highs of late, but I discovered the other day […]

    PVC is one of those materials that, like duct tape, that can be used for so many more things than the original intended purpose. I’ve seen PVC used for everything from cosplay to birdhouses. PVC is a strong material, easy to work with, and a hardy product that can withstand plenty of hard knocks and […]

    It’s difficult to find the right big bag — you don’t want anything too bulky, but you also don’t want a bag that’s flimsy – after all, you’re going to be carrying groceries, library books, craft projects, snacks, and the necessities and you need something you can depend on, that won’t snap or tear or […]
