Strip Method Crochet Rose

By Megan Mills
megan@kiwi.gen.nz



This rose is approximately 3.5cm (1.4 inches) across.

Hello fellow crafty people. :)

I originally found a version of this pattern here:

     http://home.inreach.com/marthac/crochet3.html     [dead link 22-04-06]

After making one up I thought of some changes I''d like to make to the design and came up with the following pattern.

Previously I listed just the changes I made to the other pattern to create the new design but now that the link is dead I have put the full text for my version, from beginning to end, all in one place. You don''t have to flip back and forth and translate it yourself anymore.

The rose will work just as well in finer and thicker threads so you can use it for everything from jewellery to furnishing trimmings. Wouldn''t it make a pretty blind pull or head for a curtain tassel?

I hope you enjoy making it...  Megan

Materials

DMC Cebelia No 10 thread
1.75mm hook
Rose is approximately 3.5cm (1.4 inches) across

Directions

Note: Leave a long tail at the start so that you can use it to roll-and-stitch the rose together.

Row 1: 55ch. Into 4th ch from hook work 1dc. *1ch, miss 2ch, (1dc, 2ch, 1dc) in next st. Repeat from * to the end. Turn.

Row 2: 3ch, (1dc, 2ch, 2dc) into first 2-ch sp. *(2ch, 2dc, 2ch, 2dc) in next 2-ch sp. Repeat from * to the end. Turn.

Row 3: 6dc into first 2-ch sp, 1sc into next 2-ch sp. (7dc into next 2-ch sp, 1sc into next 2-ch sp) 12 times. (9dc into next 2-ch sp, 1sc into next 2-ch sp) five times. Leave a tail long enough to weave in easily and fasten off.

Finishing

Thread the long tail onto a needle and as you roll the rose up stitch the base together. The large petals end up on the outside of the rose so start rolling from the small-petalled end. Try to keep the base flat - if it ''telescopes'' the rose will not be as pretty. You can then use the tail to attach your rose to another item or tidy away the end.

I haven''t bothered finishing it properly - I just rolled and stitched it
and took the photos for you to see.
