How To Crochet a Mini Rose with Leaves - Yarn Scrap Friday


It took me a few attempts to design this little rose but I'm pleased with the results in the end. The dusky pink yarn also gives a really nice coloured finish but of course you can use any yarn colours you like!

For this little rose, which measures about 2" x 2" approximately including leaves, is perfect for using as an applique on hats or booties, maybe even make a few into a necklace or simple decorate your home with them.

For this pattern you will need;

- Aran/Worsted weight yarn in red or pink (or any rose colour you like)
- Aran/Worsted weight yarn in green
- 3.5mm crochet hook
- Yarn needles and scissors


R = red
G = green

Rose

Row 1
Using R and a 3.5mm crochet hook, ch15

Row 2
[1sl st, 1sc, 1sl st] in 2nd st from hook, *[1sc, 1dc] in next st, [1dc, 1sc] in next st* repeat from * to * once more, **[1sc, 1dc] in next st, 3tr in next st, [1dc, 1sc] in next st** repeat from ** to ** twice more

Fasten off and rolling up your rose petals into shape, they should naturally fold on themselves, use remaining yarn to fix your rose into position.

Leaves

Row 1
Using G and a 3.5mm crochet hook, ch6

Row 2
1sc in 2nd st from hook, 1hdc in next st, 1dc in next st, 1hdc in next st, 1sc in last st - (5)

Row 3
Crocheting back into your chains again in the opposite direction, work 1sc in 1st ch (same st as last st), 1hdc in next st, 1dc in next st, 1hdc in next st, 1sc in last st - (10 total sts from rows 2 and 3)

Rows 4 - 6
Without fastening off repeat rows 1-3 for second leaf.

Fasten off and use remaining yarn to sew leaves onto the back of your rose.
