Basic Rose is an original crochet pattern by June Gilbank.
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
Yarn: worsted weight yarn in any floral colour (plus green for the optional calyx and stem)
Hook: US G / 4mm
Additional info: You'll also need a pipe cleaners or length of floral wire to make the optional stems.
Size: approx 2" diameter, when made in worsted weight yarn. (Your gauge and yarn choice will affect the finished size slightly.)
Option: This pattern will work with any size yarn, provided you choose a suitable hook size for your yarn. For example, using size 8 perle cotton and a size 7 (1.5mm) hook produces a tiny 3/4″ diameter rose.
