I have been crocheting roses for years now, and I realized I never shared my crochet rose pattern with the world before. So, it is time. To make it easier I even created a full video tutorial so you can make your own crochet rose from this pattern easily.
How to crochet a rose is really easy. In fact, you can even make it wired for the stem and leaves which I am showing you how to do that. That way you can adjust the roses the way you want them, even when you make a big Rose Bouquet from this crochet rose pattern.
I used 2 different types of wires for this crochet rose; one for the leaves which is thinner and one thicker one for the stem to make the entire rose more sturdy. The wires are bendable and make the rose look a lot prettier as you can make the rose look like you want to as you can bend the stem and leaves the way you like.
Now, before I show you the materials and the actual free crochet pattern, please also be sure to add this pattern to your Raverly Favorites by clicking the button below.
If you add this pattern to you Ravelry Favorites and share it on social media as a link, I will be able to share a lot more free crochet patterns for you all.
In addition, I created a downloadable pdf for you all, that has all the pictures separated from the pattern. So you can choose whether you want to print them or not. That can save you a lot of ink in the long run.
So let me now get started and tell you what you will need in order to crochet this amazing pattern.
How to crochet a Rose with wired Stem and Leaves
- Premier Yarns Deborah Norville Collection in really red, and kiwi
- 5.0mm hook
- tapestry needle
- 18 gauge wires
- 20 gauge wires
- floral tape
Stitches used (US terms):
Click HERE to learn these basic stitches
- ch = chain
- sc = single crochet
- hdc = half double crochet
- sl st = slip stitch
- dc = double crochet
2 rows x 4 sts = 1 square inch
4.5 inches in diameter x 10 inches in height
Turning chains do not count as stitches.
Row 1: starting from the 3rd ch from the hook, place 3 dc’s in the same ch, *sk 1 st, 3 dc’s, repeat from * until the end, turn
Row 2: ch 2, *place 3 dc on top of the middle dc from the dc cluster from the previews row, place 3 dc in the space between the clusters from the previous row, repeat from * until the end, place 1 dc in the last stitch, turn
Row 3: Ch 2, place 3 dc in the same stitch (half of a shell), *sk 2 sts, 1 sc , sk 2 sts, 6 dc’s in the same stitch (shell stitch), repeat from * until you reach the last stitch, where you place 3 dc’s (half of a shell), fasten off and cut a longer piece for sewing
Roll up the long spiral piece from one side to create a rose and sew the rose from the back together such that all layers hold together (video shows how to).
Make as many as you like, but for this example, I made 2 leaves.
You will work around the chain creating a leaf, so you don’t have rows, but rather than an oval-shaped round.
One side of chain: starting from the 2nd ch from the hook, place this sequence one stitch per chain, in the back bump of the chain: sc, [hdc] 3 times, [dc] 3 times, hdc, sc
Opposite side of the chain: you are now working through both loops (the V’s) on the other side of the chain, but this time the sequence backwards: sc, hdc, [dc] 3 times, [hdc] 3 times, sc, sl st to the first st
Fasten off and leave a small tail. Weave only one of the ends per leave in.
Take one of the 18 gauge wires and bend it in half and push it through the center (from the side where the weaved in end is to the other side where you still have a loose tail) slowly and gently not to pull too much yarn.
Make a magic ring and place 5 sc’s inside and close the circle (but not too tide as the wire still needs to go through).
You are now creating 5 leaves (1 per sc created) for the sepal.
Ch 4, starting from the 2nd ch from the hook, place on st per ch: 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, sl st to the next sc of from the circle, repeat from * until you created all 5 leaves of the sepal.
Fasten off, and don’t weave in the ends completely, but rather sew them such that they are close to the center of the sepal.
Putting together the Rose
The video shows exactly how to do this step. So if these instructions are not very clear for you, please see the video below.
Take the 20 gauge wire and fold it in half and push it thru the center of the rose from the pretty side to the bottom where everything was sewn. Now push the sepal onto the wire and make sure all ends (rose and sepal) are towards the 2 ends of the wire.
Now attach the floral tape and wrap it around the wire starting right where the ends and the sepal are. Wrap it around the same spot multiple times to create a little “bump”, then work your way down wrapping around the ends and the wire. when you feel like adding the leaves at a certain point, hold them right to the wire and wrap around the 18 and 20 gauge wire, as well as the yarn, ends.
Keep adding leaves as you feel like it until you reach the end. Make sure to wrap around the end multiple times to make sure all the wires are covered with floral tape (cut and wire and yarn ends before you get to the ends to make them all the same length).
You are now done and finished your rose. Feel free to make many more in different colors and create an entire bouquet of roses.
