Roses…and more roses….

I am having so much fun making crocheted roses!



I saw the links to the instructions at Rose Haven  and then I saved them on my computer in Publisher to print them out in a bigger font! So that I can see them! lol She’s having a giveaway right now so it’s a great time to visit!  Click HERE ! Here are the patterns that I saved on my computer……

Large Rose (this is the RED rose that I made)

Leaving a 10" length for sewing, chain 57.

Row 1 (Wrong side): (Dc, ch 2, dc) in sixth ch from hook (5 skipped chs count as first dc plus ch 2),*ch 2, skip next 2 chs, (dc, ch 2, dc) in next ch; repeat from * across: 36 sps.

Row 2: Ch 3, turn; 5 dc in next ch-2 sp, sc in next ch-2 sp, (6 dc in next ch-2 sp, sc in next ch-2 sp) 5times, (9 dc in next ch-2 sp, sc in next ch-2 sp) 5 times, (12 dc in next ch-2 sp, sc in next sp) 7 times;

Hi girlfriend. I like those roses too. Your blog is always full of surprises to behold. Perhaps you'll teach a class to the gnomes on how to make those roses. In the meantime, you are teaching them all about seashells down by the seashore. Thank you! Tee hee...you are a gem!

Hi Diane! the roses are gorgous! I can think of tons of things to do with them.....put them on a sweater or hair bands, make a wreath...I can't wait to see what you have planned for them....Hugs, Jennifer

Diane, crocheting is comforting!



I still think making them into a pin is a wonderful idea...it's sweet to share the directions...however this gal can not crochet...wanna trade a couple of my handmade cards for a pink rose pin??
