Intro: Crotchet Rose
Searching for a last miunte gift for Mother's day?
or do you want to upgrade a boring shirt or hairclip?
This easy one is what you're looking after :)
This rose is made from single crotchet and double crotchet (click on the links if you've never heard about it :) )
and is about 2-3 inches -that depends on the yarn used.
I'm no expierienced crotcher and I did it anyway.
The pattern used i got from a neighbour.
Step 1: Materials
yarn ( i use cotton yarn)
a matching crotchet-hook
a sewing needle - big enough for your chosen yarn
Step 2: Foundation Chain
Make a foundation chain of 55
(ch 55) leave a 5 inch tail for sewing
Into 4th ch from hook: work 1dc.
*1ch, miss 2ch, (1dc, 2ch, 1dc) in next st. Repeat from * to the end.
Now turn your piece
look at the pictures if something is unclear - it took me awhile too, i'm no experienced crotcher ;)
Step 4: Go On
Go on until the row is done
The pictures show what you're piece should look like ( that's what mine turned out ;D )
Step 5: Next Row
Try to keep your work flat - I'm always pulling too hard that's why mine went into a spiral
3ch, (1dc, 2ch, 2dc) into first 2-ch space (between the dc from the first row)
*(2ch, 2dc, 2ch, 2dc) in next 2-ch sp. Repeat from * to the end of row.
Turn your work.
IF UNCLEAR: you should end up with 2 dc's in every space
Step 6: Last Row :)
6dc into first 2-ch space,
1sc (single crotchet) into next 2-ch space. (thats the first petal)
7dc into next 2-ch space,
1sc into next 2-ch space (12 times)(12petals).
9dc into next 2-ch space,
1sc into next 2-ch space (5 times.) (5 petals)
Step 7: Rolling and Sewing
get the tail of yarn into your sewing needle.
roll the strip from the first petal you made ( the one with 6 dc)
until you like the look of it.
sew it together - i've got no special technique -just not to crappy :)
Step 8: Admire
you did it! - wasn't too hard, eh?
