Wooly Irish Rose - free pattern

 

For my recently made shawls I made complimentary Irish rose brooches and I firmly believe that do make a huge difference once pinned on said shawls. 

This is not a traditional crochet Irish rose pattern. I designed it a little bit differently and this time instead of cotton I used an acrylic (worsted) variegated yarn. In particular, I used Nako's Vals for all the pieces of my newest collection. I used a 3mm steel hook.

Used stitches:  chain (ch), slip stitch (sl st), single crochet (sc), half double crochet (hdc), double crochet (dc), triple crochet (tr). American terminology used. 

Pattern:
Ch 5 and join to make a ring. 
Round 1: sc 6 in round.
Round 2: Ch4 and hdc1 in first (base) st.  Sl st in next st, ch 4 and hdc1 in that same stitch. Repeat this pattern for all remaining 4 stitches.
Round 3: ch3 and sl st (from behind the made petals) between 2 petals. Make 6 such chains.
Round 4: In the first chain space, sc1, dc3, sc1. Sl st into the next ch-space and repeat this pattern for the remaining chains.
Round 5: ch4 and sl st (from behind the made petals) between 2 petals. Make 6 such chains.
Round 6:  In the first chain space, sc1, hdc1,dc3, hdc1, sc1. Sl st into the next ch-space and repeat this pattern for the remaining chains. 
Round 7: ch5 and sl st (from behind the made petals) between 2 petals. Make 6 such chains.
Round 8:  In the first chain space, hdc1,dc2, tr2, dc2, hdc1. Sl st into the next ch-space and repeat this pattern for the remaining chains. Cut tail, make a knot, weave the ends. 

So, this is an ideal weekend project, do you agree? What's your go-to crochet flower you love working on the most?

Thank you Kim! And yes! I just adore this necklace. I bought it in Malta and the beads are Maltese glass. It is a dear memento :)

Thank you so much for sharing this pattern, Maya! I love when petals fall on the previous row petals so neatly. :-)
