How to Crochet a Rose

If you plan on changing the type of yarn you are using for each row then start with the chunkiest yarn and work your way to the lightweight yarn for row three. At the end of each row you are ending a color, work the last dc until 2 loops remain on the hook, drop the main color, and finish the st with the new color. This pattern is modified from Lion Brand patterns .

Foundation chain: Hold the eyelash yarn and the baby yarn together and chain 35. Cut the eyelash yarn so you’ll just be working with the lightweight yarn in row 1.

Row 1: V-stitch – dc in 5 th ch from hook, *ch 1, skip 1, (dc, ch, dc) in next ch; repeat from * across. Turn

Row 2: Shell stitch – ch 3 (counts as dc), 5 dc in first ch-space, *sc in next ch-1 space, 6 dc in next ch-1 space; repeat from * across.

Row 3: Sc in each st across. Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing the rose.

Finishing – Thread the needle with the tail and weave to the base of the last st. Roll the first shell stitch tight to form the center bud. Stitch with the needle and yarn. Continue rolling the rest of the sewing to secure through the layers to the foundation chain.

Create a loop on the back of the rose that will fit onto the necklace. Work the hook into the back of the rose, catching some of the crocheted stitches. Sc, anchoring the yarn; ch 4 and then work the hook into the back of the rose, approximately a half inch from where you started the loop, and sc. Fasten off and work in the tails.

Make the Crocheted Necklace

Make a chain three times the size of the neck.

Row 1: Skip the first ch and sc in each st to the end. If you’d like a slightly wider neck ribbon, work a second row. Fasten off

Using the loop on the back of the rose, slide it onto the crocheted neck ribbon and you are ready to wear your rose necklace.

To wear the necklace, tie the ends in a bow around your neck. Slide the rose up to the knot in the bow and position where you’d like it on your neck. By changing the yarn, you can repeat this pattern over and over while creating a unique look for each necklace.
