Free Pattern: No-sew Rose
I made this rose in a larger size here.
Worsted weight yarn (Pictured is I Love This Cotton)
Appropriate size hook (Used 4.25mm)
Tapestry Needle (for minimal sewing)
Ch - chain
Sc - single crochet
Dc - double crochet
Sl st - slip stitch
Instructions are for closed rose. Changes for open rose are in parentheses.
Round 1: Magic ring, inside ring ch 1, 9 sc. Pull ring tight, join with sl st to ch.
Round 2: Ch 3. 2 dc in back loops (front loops) only in each sc around. (18 dc) Join to top ch of ch 3.
Rose Spiral: ch 1. (turn so wrong side is facing. The back of your work will be facing you the whole time.) *In front loop of second dc from hook, 6 dc. Skip one dc, sl st in front loop of next dc. Repeat from * 3 times.
Now you will move to the next "round." In front loop of second dc from hook, which should be the last dc, 6 dc. Skipping one dc, sl st in the post of the next dc.
*Skip one dc post, 6 dc in post of next dc. Skip one dc post, sl st in post of next dc. Repeat from * one time. Skip one dc post, 6 dc in post of next dc.
You should be ready to move to the next "round," the exposed loops of the original scs. Sl st in first loop.
*Skip one loop, 4 dc in next loop. Skip one loop, sl st in next loop. Repeat from * one time. If you have the space--in one test rose I did, in one I did not. Don't know how that happened, but they both turned out nice--repeat a second time. You do not have to have the space to sl st for the last petal. Finish off with a long tail for sewing.
Thread tapestry needle through tail on end, insert through center of rose. Pull tight enough to make the last petal curl in nicely. Weave in so it doesn't move.
