This Wednesday is reserved for a lovely crochet ring.
Once in a while I like to return to simple crochet projects with a maximum pleasing effect and the crochet rose is one of them.
For this particular rose I used cotton thread (size 5) and a 1.5 mm crochet hook.
The pattern is very easy and works up fast:
Foundation & row 1: Ch 40 and dc 2 in the 7th st from hook. Sk 2 and in next st dc1, ch2 and dc1 ("V" st) all in the same st. Repeat pattern in bold to the end of the row.
Row 2: ch2 (counts as 1st hdc), turn work and in the ch space of the V hdc1, dc4, hdc2. Repeat this "petal" pattern (hdc2, dc4, hdc2) for all ch spaces.
Leave a long tail which you'll use to sew the rose.
When done, start rolling the rose tightly and pin if necessary to prevent it to unroll, thread the tail and sew the rose.
I glued it to an adjustable ring. And here it is! I couldn't stop myself with just one so I made a small set :)
