Make these bright and cheerful, yet easy crocheted roses to add a little flair to your favorite hat, scarf, or blanket! I will give you step-by-step instructions to make crocheting roses a breeze. These roses look gorgeous and only take about minutes to make.
Difficulty Level: Medium
Project Time: 15 minutes per rose
You only need a few items to get started...a medium-sized yarn (I use Red Heart brand...it does not require much to make a rose, so use up your leftover yarn supply) and a 5 mm crocheting hook. I prefer to make a variety of rose colors, so if you like the same, choose a few colors of yarn to work with.
Begin by crocheting 12 chain stitches, and connect to form a ring.
Begin the first petal (there are 8 total) by double crocheting 6 into a single loop; finish the petal with 3 single crochets connecting the 6th double crochet down to the loop.
Skip 2 on the initial ring. In the 3rd stitch over, create a 2nd petal.
Continue to work around the ring until 4 petals are present.
Starting with the 5th petal, crochet into the bottom middle of the next petal over. Continue to work in a circular pattern until 8 petals have been made.
Finish by tying off and pulling yarn tail to the back. Then tie onto your favorite accessory or blanket...and you are all done!!!
Crocheted roses give the perfect finish to a plain item, making it both beautiful and unique. Don't forget to check out other pretty cool crocheting projects, and let me know what you think about this project in the comments below. Thanks for reading!
