Don’t let the fact that you are a beginner fool you into thinking you can’t make a complex piece such as the rose pictured below. The beginner crochet rose is surprisingly easy and one of the most satisfying projects you will finish as a beginner. I have put together a completely beginner friendly rose tutorial to help your through the process. You can also find the written pattern below the video to get you familiar with how a written pattern looks. Now grab your hook and let’s get started!
Beginner Crochet Rose
Please do not copy, sell or redistribute this pattern without first obtaining my permission. Items produced using this pattern may be sold, however please do not use the photo above.
- Crochet hook size 5.5mm
- Worsted weight yarn (4)
- Darning needle
- ch = Chain
- sc = Single Crochet
- dc = Double Crochet
Ch 60 + 3
Dc in the fourth chain from the hook and in each stitch all the way across
Skip one stitch and dc 8 times into the next stitch. Skip one stitch and sc into next stitch. Repeat all the way across. Bind off
At this point you should have a long strand of work with scallops for flower petals.
Finish off leaving a strand of about 8 inches. You will use this extra yarn to stitch the flower together in the end.
The variation in your flower depends on how you roll your work. If you want a smaller and taller flower, you will want to roll your flower tighter with the layers right on top of each other. If you need a larger, rounder flower you will want to roll your flower more lose.
