Easy Crochet Rose Pattern

This project is worked in rows.

R1: Ch 88, sk the first ch and work 1 sc in the next ch. *Skip the next 3 chs. Work (1 dc, ch 1) 3 times and 1 dc in the next ch, skip the next 3 chs, 1 sc in the next ch**. Work from * to ** 10 times. Work 1 hdc in each of the rem chs across. Chain 1, turn. [1 sc, 6 hdc, 10 petal sets]

R3: 1 sc in each hdc, {(chain 2, 1 sc in the 1st chain-1 space) 1 time, (chain 3, 1 sc in the next chain-1 space) 3 times} repeat { } 10 times, chain 1, 1 hdc in the beginning sc of R2, TURN

R4:  {(chain 3, 1 sc in the chain-3 space) 3 times, (chain 3, 1 sc in the chain-2 space) 1 time} repeat { } 6 times; leave the remaining stitches unworked, finish off and leave a long tail for sewing

How to Wrap the Rose:

Thread your yarn-tail onto a yarn needle. Beginning at the end with the hdc stitches, wrap the work around your finger, while trying to keep the initial foundation chain flat (lined-up). Using your yarn needle, weave the yarn through your work, making sure to catch all the wraps of the rose.

Once you have secured the layers tie off your end and weave it through the base of the work; do not cut yet as you can use this to sew to the brooch back; or to embellish an item of your choice.

Leaves (make 2)

The leaves are worked around a foundation chain; on both sides of the chain.

R1: Chain 10

R2: 1 ss in the 2nd chain from the hook, 1 ss in the next stitch, 1 sc in each of the next 3 sts, 1 hdc in each of the next 2 sts, 1 dc in the next stitch, 5 dc in the end stitch; rotate your work and continue along the base of the chain, 1 dc in the next st, 1 hdc in each of the next 2 sts, 1 sc in each of the next 3 sts, 1 ss in the last stitch and 1 ss in the 1st chain of the round (the one you skipped initially).

Finish off and leave a long tail for sewing.

This step is optional but I like to do this as it hides the little gaps in the starting chain.  I weave my yarn end through the centre of the leaf – like a ‘vein’ – it fills those little gaps in the centre of the leaf – just something I like to do – not really a necessary step 😉

Repeat the process for the 2nd leaf (or as many leaves as you would like!)

To make the Brooch

I sew my leaves in a visually pleasing position to the back of the rose before attaching the brooch back.  I use the holes in the brooch back to affix it to the centre of the rose and I also stitch the yarn around each end of the metal brooch back, to make it rest flat against the rose (I only do this twice on each end – I don’t want to make it too bulky).

Please see the photo below as an example:

For the Large Rose I used Red Heart Supersaver Yarn and a 4.50 mm crochet hook – this is a nice size for hats 😉 This rose is approximately 3.5 inches in diameter.

For the small Rose Brooch with leaves I used SMC Catania and a 2.50 mm crochet hook – this rose is approximately 1.75 inches in diameter.  The leaves measure 1.5 inches in length and 0.75 inches in width (at the widest point).

  1. You are the very first person I have ever met that spells Rhondda with the h and two d’s too! My Nana was born near the Rhondda Valley in Wales which is where my name ‘came’ from although here in Canada everyone pronounces it as a d sound not the traditional th sound 🙂 Have a lovely weekend, Rhondda

  2. Thanks very much for these patterns on roses. Haven’t tried them yet though. I had to say hi, your name; you are the 1st person that spells their name exactly like mine.

  3. this is possibly my favourite cos i love how this pattern turns out. so pretty!

  4. Hi Linda, Thank you for the feedback 🙂 I can add this to my list of things to do! Thanks 🙂 Rhondda

  5. This is pretty but I think it would make more sense if you showed a photo of what it looks like before you sew it together. Any chance you could do that? Thanks.
