- ROW 1: K until end.
- ROW 2-6/7 or 8: K until end.
- Last ROW: Cast off – leave a long tail for sewing your Rose!
Creating the Rose:
- Fold over an inch and sew;
- Fold long end towards you around the ‘bud’and sew;
- Fold long end around the ‘bud’and sew;
- continue this way until end.
- See photos!!
Now you can use these roses as is OR you can attach them to a dowel/small stick.
Insert dowel into the center of the ‘bud’ – you can glue them in place or leave.
I found mine sat very well – so it is easy to remove and wash!!
I wrapped the remaining part of the tail around the dowel and used ‘sticky tape’ to glue the end in place.

I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.
