Pearls and Lace Thursday #131 Crochet Rose Tutorial

Do you want to try to make a crochet rose?  I was asked for the pattern by Teresa (thank you!!), and now I have a bit of a tutorial ready to share.  Let me stop right here and say this though:  I am not a great crocheter, I only look at things and 'try' to make them.  I don't know what to call certain stiches, but I can usually figure it out by looking, so please please forgive my mistakes!  Any help y'all can give me to make this correct would be appreciated.  And please forgive the less than stellar photos!!

I'm posting earlier than usual this week because I have satellite internet....
and there's a storm coming, and I wanted to be SURE and post my efforts this week!!
OK.  Here is what I'm making.
This is a three rowed crochet rose.

In the picture above, you can see 5 finished roses, the bottom one shows the back of the rose.

I will type out a copy of the complete directions at the bottom of this post if you want to copy and paste it to your computer to keep.  All I ask is that if you use it to please give credit back to me and this blog.
I used size 10 thread and a size 6 metal crochet hook.

Start with a chain of 7 stitches, and close to make a ring.  Chain 3 and then treble crochet (tc) 14 more for a total of 15 stitches into the middle of the ring.  ch. 3.  (picture below)

We will make a series of 'loops' next by skipping over three stitches of the completed tc's and then single crochet (sc) in between the stitches.  (see picture below, green stitch).  There will be a series of 3 chains, sc, for a total of 5 loops around the circle. 

Below is a picture of the completed loops around the circle. 

The loop is where the first row of petals will be stitched (below).

In the first loop, sc, 3tc, sc. Then move to the next loop (petal) and repeat all the way around.
You should have a row of five petals making the first round of petals. 

You are now back at the beginning of the first petal.  Turn your work face down and bend the first petal down.  Slip stitch over (blue thread) to the middle of the first petal (see both pics below) aiming for the loop encased in the petal stitches.

Here you can see the green loop inside the petal stitches where I am slip stitching toward the middle of the petal.

Begin a series of chain loops with 4 chains, then a slip stitch into the base of the middle of the back of each petal on the first row.  You will actually be making these loops on the back of the rose. (below, blue thread)

Inside each loop, sc, 5tc, sc. until all 5 petals are complete.  This will be your second row of petals.
Again, bend the first petal over and slip stitch over to the middle of the petal, and begin making loops for the third row of petals using 5 chains for each loop. (yellow thread).

Here is a closeup of the back of the rose, completed.  I usually slip stitch over and then tie off to finish.

Doni's Crochet Rose

Ch. 7, close to make ring, ch 3 then tc 14 more for a total of 15 stitches around ring.  Close circle and ch 3.
Count over 3 stitches and sc inside the tc stitch, repeating around the circle for a total of 5 loops where the petals will be made.
In the first loop, sc, 3tc, sc, repeat making the first row of 5 petals.
slip stitch behind the first petal along the loop or base of the petal to the middle of the petal. 
ch 4, then one slip stitch in the back middle of the next petal all the way around.
Make the second row of petals inside the loops by sc, 5tc, sc for each loop or petal.
Slip stitch along the back of the first petal again to the middle of the base of that petal, then ch 5.
Make these loops around the petal bases by slip stitching in the back middle of the next petal all the way around.
Third row of petals, sc, 7tc, sc in each loop all the way around.  Slip stitch a few behind the petal and tie off.
Your rose will curl up by itself, but you might want to shape it to look nice.

Knowing that I am inclined to making mistakes, please watch for corrections during the next week...and please let me know if you see something that needs to be changed!!
Let me know if you try this!!  I'd LOVE to see what you do!!
You can email me pictures of your roses and creations!

Doni thank you ever so kindly for sharing what you know. I so want to make some crochet roses and I am going to figure this out one day. I love your little precious roses!!! Have a beautiful day Doni. Hugs, Beverly

Diane | An Extraordinary Day said...

Oh my Doni...your roses are the sweetest things!! My mom taught me to crochet when I was in middle school or high school. But, then I went to college and got smitten with other kinds of needlework and sewing and then became a career girl and the crafts fell to the wayside. So many times I see lovely sweaters or hats and wonder if I could create it....but have no idea if that is anything but a dream. In the meantime...I will enjoy your lovelies. Blessings!
P.S. Hope you weren't bothered by the impending storm. We just got a warning of a severe storm here tonight. ;-/ Spring!
