Simple Petal Rose


I don’t do a lot of flower crochet, but that’s not because I don’t love them. It’s because they can be pretty tedious and labor intensive!

However, there is no denying that a cute flower sitting on top of a project takes whatever your working on from ho-hum to WOW really fast.

Case in point, Mary Jane’s!

I’ve already covered these booties in my Basic Baby Shoes post so I won’t go into how to make them. Today it’s all about the flower.

 

Simple Petal Rose

Materials Needed:

  • Size G (4.00mm) hook
  • Any color baby weight yarn

Note: Using a thinner yarn and a smaller hook will result in a smaller finished flower. For a larger flower, use thicker yarn and a bigger hook.

Chain 26

Skip first 4 chains, sc in 5th ch from hook, (ch 2, skip 2 chains, 1 sc) across, turn.

(sc, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 1, sc) in each ch 2 space across, (sc, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 1, sc) in final ch 4 space. Finish off, leaving a long tail.

Thread the tail through a tapestry needle. Holding the short beginning tail in your hand, begin to turn the piece to form your flower. Sew the petals together using your long tail and tapestry needle.

Finished flower measures approximately 2 inches in diameter.

 

As always, if you make one we’d love to see it over in HodgePodge!
