free pattern: basic rose

This basic rose pattern is a perfect introduction to crocheted flowers, and it’s so versatile – make it in any size and colour you like!

Here are some ideas for use:

  • Use the optional stem pattern below to create a whole vase of roses
  • Stitch a pin to the back of a rose to make a pretty brooch
  • Accessorize a bag by sewing on a couple of roses
  • Sew or glue a small rose to a hair clip or plastic hairband

UPDATE: I forgot to mention these would also make a perfect Mother’s Day gift!

    I can’t thank you enough for this, June, you just solved one of my current problems.

    I’m making all of the flowers for my upcoming wedding as I don’t like cut flowers… I tried and failed many different flower “recipes” but nothing suited being made into a boutonniere for my Groom and the Best Man.

    You have honestly come to my rescue!

    Thanks again, June!! MWAH!
