There is very little structure to how or what I’m creating or working on at the moment. The baby doesn’t always take long naps during the day so I don’t have a lot of time. I do however have a lot of ideas and things I wan’t to do so when time presents itself I’m once again bouncing all over the place.
Here’s one little thing that popped into my head and took priority over all the other things I’m currently working on. I’m very excited that I’m able to publish it here so quickly, but damn, I so wish my mind would calm down a tiny bit.
Crochet Rose Wreath Instructions
This pattern is written in UK terms. In US terms: dc = sc, htr = hdc & tr = dc
Tools and Materials:
- 8mm crochet hook
- darning/tapestry needle
- 25cm flat wire wreath frame or similar
- 20-25 meters of yarn per rose
- 3 meters of yarn per leaf
- Note! I’ve used Conway & Bliss Odin Chunky for the orange rose and Drops Snow for the rest.
Rose, make 8
Leave a 35cm/10inch tail in the beginning for sewing.
Ch50, starting from 2nd chain on the hook: work a 1dc in each st.
Turn work and ch1, 1dc in the first st, [skip next st, (tr, ch, tr, ch, tr, ch, tr) in next st, dc in next st] 12 times.
Leave a 30cm/12inch long tail in the end for sewing and cut the yarn.
Starting from the end with the shorter tail of yarn, roll the piece into a rose. Make sure the bottom of the rose stays flat and use the shorter tail to sew through all the layers a few times to secure the rose shape. Weave in this end.
Leaf, make 16
Leave a 23cm/9inch tail in the beginning for attaching the leaf.
ch9, starting from the 2nd ch from the hook: ss, dc, dc, htr, tr, htr, dc, ss,
1ch, turn work 180 degrees and work the following on the other side of the of the beg ch9: ss, dc, htr, tr, htr, dc, dc, ss, + one more ss to the tip of the leaf.
Cut yarn and weave in this end.
Attach the roses on the wreath frame by sewing. Weave in any remaining ends.
And you’re done! Yay!
