Row 1: With your Simply Soft yarn, create a slip knot and Ch 63. Dc in the fourth chain from the hook and in each ch. Turn.
Row 2: Ch 1 (does not count as st). Sc in first st. *Sk next st, 8 dc in next. Sk next st, sc in next. Rep from * to end of row. Bind off
At this point you should have a long strand of work with scallops for flower petals. Fasten off leaving a tail that measures at least 8 inches long. You will use this extra yarn to stitch the flower together in the end. Starting from the opposite end of your long tail, roll your flower and form the rose.
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.
Once your flower is rolled up, use your darning needle and long tail to secure the layers. Run your darning needle from on side to the opposite, catching as many rolled layers as possible. Repeat several times until your flower feels secure. Tie a knot with the remaining long tail and the tail from the start of the first row. You can use these tails to secure it to your project!
