Crochet Rolled Rose


Crochet flowers are sweet little additions to any project, wether it be a granny blanket, baby booties, a scarf or a small token. The ideas of how to use this rolled rose is endless! It is a very simple pattern and a picture perfect result is attainable for any level of crocheter.

For the roses below I used a 4.00mm hook. To increase or decrease the size of the rose, simply change the thickness of the yarn or the hook size. The delicate, teeny tiny rose I made was using crochet cotton and a 1mm size hook. Experiment with different sizes and yarn and let me know the result!

I adapted my pattern from pompomemporium.com. Here is the pattern -

Leaving a 10"length for sewing, chain 37.

Row 1: (dc, ch2, dc) in 6th chain from hook (5 skipped chs count as first dc plus 2 ch), *ch2, skip next 2 chs, (dc, ch2, dc) in next ch; repeat from * until you have reached the end of the initial 37ch. 






Row 2: Ch3, turn; 5dc in next ch2 sp, sc in next ch2 sp, (6dc in next ch2 sp, sc in next ch2 sp) 3 times, (9dc in next ch2 sp, sc in next ch2 sp) 3 times, (12dc in next ch2 sp, sc in next ch2 sp) 5 times. Finish off leaving 10" length for sewing. 





End: Roll rose beginning with the first petal you made but wrong side facing outward. Smallest petals should be in the centre of the rose and the larger, flatter petals on the outside. Use a yarn needle to sew secure.





Happy crocheting!
