Let’s learn how to make this crochet rose! Last week I went to a bridal shower and the dress code was vintage dresses and tea hats. I had this dress from Target from Easter that fit that look, but I didn’t have a tea hat. I didn’t really want to go buy something that would just sit in my closet so I decided the night before to make a crochet flower or a crochet rose more specifically, that I could put in my hair instead. I showed you on Instagram (@melaniekham) and you all asked for a tutorial, so here it is!
The Crochet Rose Pattern
The pattern is pretty straight forward, however you need to know how to slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet and treble crochet making this an advanced beginner pattern. This is US crochet terminology.
Multiples: 5 +1. My pattern is 125 +1 (Each petal needs 5 stitches – I did 25 petals, see below for modifications. Each sample photo will have yarn type and hook size listed)
Choose your yarn and hook that is recommended on package.
- Start with a slip knot
- Chain 125 +1, 125
- Single crochet in the 2nd chain. sc in each of the foundation chains all the way down.
- turn your work, chain 5 and slip stitch in the 5th sc from the previous row. ch 5 and repeat all the way down. You should slip stitch in the final sc stitch.
- turn work
- all stitches for petal are done in the chain 5 space. sc, hdc, dc, 3 treble, 1 treble in 2nd sc from first row, 3 treble, dc, hdc, sc for each petal.
- Once all petals are complete, fasten off and weave in all tails.
- Optional: reattach yarn at the “beginning.” Working from right to left and looking at the right side of your petals, slip stitch in the back loop at the top of each petal all the way to the end. leave a 20-25 inch tail and fasten off.
- Use the long tail to sew the flower together once it’s shaped into a flower. See video below if needed.
If you are using a chunky acrylic yarn and want the crochet rose to be smaller, reduce the number of petals. This flower has 14 petals instead of 25. That would make your foundation chain is 70 +1, so 71.
This flower uses the 25 petals, but each petal has more of a ruffled look. If you don’t want that, you can take 2 of the treble stitches out and create a flatter look.
This flower is so pretty, it might be my favorite. The subtle variegation in the yarn creates a stunning look.
I hope you enjoyed learning how to make this crochet rose! Here is the full video tutorial.
