Crochet English Rose Tutorial

I was putting together this simple rose pattern for those on my crochet beginners course, I had so much response from a crochet page for testers I promised I would blog it so everyone could have a go. This is the rose I use on my wreaths. Enjoy!




Rose Pattern – US terms

Hook 5mm
Wool : Any aran but cotton or something with a bit of stiffness will be fine.
Stiches: Ch- Chain Dc – Double Crochet, Tr – Treble crochet, Slst – Slip stitch St- Stitch

Row 1: Chain 62
 
Row 2: 1Dc into third ch from the hook and in every chain across. (60dc)

 

Row 3: Turn your work, *miss 1 st and then 5 dc into the next stitch, miss 1 st and slst into the next.* Repeat 4 more times (5 dc petals)
 
 
 

Continuing across the row *miss 1 st and then 5 tr into the next stitch, miss 1 st and sl st into the next one.* Repeat 9 times. Ending with a slip stitch in the top of the last st.
 

15 petals made.
Now cut the yarn leaving a long tail. Attach your darning needle to the tail before rolling the rose. You can fiddle with how tight or loose to roll it to get the look you’re after, roll up your rose from the small petal end good side facing in and stitch in place using the darning needle and the long tail, slip the needle right the way through the rose to the other side making sure it goes through all the layers, you can then stitch in different directions to make it tighter and really secure.

 
So there you go, you can attach to a hat, blanket, wreath or glue gun it to a stick and pop it in a vase. Or make one and give it to someone you love. I hope you enjoy it x

  1. Thanks so much! This was really quick and fun to make. I rolled mine in the opposite direction by mistake and got a totally different but equally beautiful look.
