Simple Crochet Roses (3 sizes)


These roses are worked in one piece and are only made up of two rows. They are super simple to make and the smaller two work up really quickly. They can be used in a variety of different projects including hats, headbands, hairclips, hair bow holders. Use your imagination and I am sure you will come up with something great. Us crafters are good at that :).



Gauge: 
4 sc and 4 rows = 1 inch

Materials:
8 ply yarn. I used Moda Vera Marvel. Any yarn will work though just be aware your flowers might turn out a different size. My measurements are as follows:

Large Flower: 6 inch diameter, uses approx 35 grams of yarn.
Medium Flower: 4 inch diameter, uses approx 18 grams of yarn
Small Flower - 2 inch diameter, uses approx 4 grams of yarn

5.00 mm crochet hook
Yarn needle
Scissors

Patterns:


Medium Flower:

Ch 55,

Row 1: Dc into the 6th ch from the hook (the 6 skipped ch’s count as 1 dc, ch 2), (dc, ch 2, dc) into each stitch across. (50 ch 2 spaces)

Row 2: Ch 1, turn, *6 hdc into ch 2 space, sc into next ch 2 space* Repeat 5 times. *8 dc into next ch 2 space, sc into next ch 2 space* Repeat 10 times. *10 tr into next ch 2 space, sc into next ch 2 space* Repeat 10 times. (Total of 25 shells) 

Scroll down for assembly.

Small Flower:

Ch 25,

Row 1: Dc into the 6th ch from the hook (the 6 skipped ch’s count as 1 dc, ch 2), (dc, ch 2, dc) into each stitch across. (20 ch 2 spaces)

Row 2: Ch 1, turn, *6 hdc into ch 2 space, sc into next ch 2 space* Repeat 10 times. (Total of 10 shells) 

Assembly:

Finish off, starting from the end with the hdc shells (this will become the centre of the flower), roll into a spiral shape, stitching together as you go. The size of your flower will depend on how tightly you do this so keep this in mind when stitching together.
