Crochet Rose Tutorial






I’ve seen such roses (but in smaller sizes) used in Irish crochet. The idea is not complicated, and I was able to come up with my own pattern. For the roses shown, I used cotton yarn (can’t tell the size and brand as it’s been in my stash forever).





I can picture a beautiful cushion with such rose bouquet on it. Another idea would be a table runner; something similar to this one. Or, perhaps, these roses could be incorporated into a gorgeous afghan (that would be a lot of work though).  



As you can see from the pattern, I used different amount of double crochets (15, 16, 17, and 18) for the petals. That’s because I wanted the petals to be of different sizes. Also the place where the petals are attached with a slip stitch can be slightly different.

You may end up with a bit of chain left, which is not enough to make a petal. In that case, just wave it in on the wrong side of the rose.


Ch 100.



Center: Sl st in 8th ch from hook. Ch 1, 17 dc in ring, hdc in ring.



In the following instructions dc and hdc should be worked around the chain.



Petal 1: hdc, 15 dc, hdc around ch. Sl st in 7th dc of ring.



Petal 2: ch 1, hdc, 17 dc, hdc. Sl st in 7th dc from last sl st.



Petal 3: ch 1, hdc, 18 dc, hdc. Sl st in 6th dc of Petal 1.



Petal 4: ch 1, hdc, 18 dc, hdc. Sl st in 2nd dc of Petal 2.



Petal 5: ch 1, hdc, 15 dc, hdc. Sl st in 10th dc from last sl st.



Petal 6: ch 1, hdc, 16 dc, hdc. Sl st in 6th dc of Petal 3.



Petal 7: ch 1, hdc, 15 dc, hdc. Sl st in 11th dc from last sl st.



Petal 8: ch 1, hdc, 17 dc, hdc. Sl st in 11th dc of Petal 4.



Petal 9: ch 1, hdc, 15 dc, hdc (If you used up all the chain, make this last hdc into last ch, but if you have a bit of chain left make this hdc around ch). Sl st in 4th dc of Petal 5.

Fasten off. If you have a small amount of chain left, wave it in on the wrong side of the rose.

  16. Very pretty and unusual pattern - thanks so much! Most of the Irish Roses I've seen are three-dimensional, and it's really neat that these are flat - they would make a lovely (and practical!) doily :)

  20. Hmm, I haven't thought about joining them. But there must be a way. If I come with something, I'll make a tutorial.

  21. What a wonderful pattern of roses! Just what I was looking for! Now I'm so inspired that I wanna crochet right away! But, as I'm Swedish, it's easier to read the pattern if it's translated into swedish. Is that ok for you, if I translate the text to swedish so I can share it with my crocheting friends over here? /Britta

  23. I love your work. I was so glad to find your flat rose pattern, as I have been searching for one for quite a long time. I'm sure I could have figured it out eventually, but given my circumstances, it will be so much easier to follow your instructions. I am making a wedding dress for my grand daughter, in modified Irish crochet. I say: "Thank God she's a small person!". When I downloaded the pattern, I couldn't help but notice the time stamp, (4:34 AM MST) It seems that you are a hoot owl also. It seems like most creative people are night folks. Thanks again for taking the time to compile the pattern for us. Please join me in a prayer that I get to finish the wedding dress. I'll try to send you a picture of it when I do finish it. I;m just glad she isn't planning to use it anytime soon. Since I'm not in good health, she wanted to know she would have a dress made by me, when the time comes for her to make that step in her life. Gratefully, Laverne
