Make a bouquet that will never fade when you use our free crochet rose pattern to stitch flowers.
While we used red yarn for Valentine’s Day, you could use any color of yarn to make these crocheted roses any time of the year.
Another great Valentine crochet project is our Crochet Heart Granny Square.
This easy rose pattern uses simple beginner crochet stitches.
Crochet Rose Pattern
- Red Yarn (medium or medium light weight)
- Crochet hook
- Tapestry needle
- Green felt for leaves (optional)
Start by making a slip knot at the open end of the yarn.
Make 41 chain stitches.
Skip the chain next to hook and insert the hook into the 2nd stitch from hook.
Work a single crochet.
Skip the next stitch of the base chain and then work a single crochet into the next stitch. Then, chain 2.
Continue to repeat the 1 sc, chain 2, skip 1 base stitch and work 1 sc into the next stitch.
After reaching the other end of the base chain, turn the pattern to the other side. Chain 2 on hook.
Insert the hook into the chain 2 loop created in the previous round.
Work a double crochet into the loop.
Work 2 more double crochet into the same loop.
Chain 1 and slip stitch into the loop to complete our first petal.
Now, slip stitch into the next chain 2 loop.
Work 3 dc into the loop, chain 1 and slip stitch into the loop to complete our second petal.
Repeat the process to make a petal into each chain 2 loop of the previous round.
You should have a total of 10 petals. If you increase the number of base chains, the number of loops/ petals will also increase.
Finish the crochet with a slip stitch and pull out a few inches of the yarn and cut off extra yarn from bundle.
Start to coil the petal chain from a side.
Coil the entire petal chain and try to create a blooming rose pattern.
Turn the rose pattern to the backside and use a needle to stitch the backside/ bottom part of the coiled petal with the remaining extra yarn.
Tie a knot after stitching the bottom side of the crochet rose and then cut off extra yarn if necessary.
If you would like to add leaves, cut out a small leaf pattern from green felt and glue or stitch to the back of the crochet rose.
Alternatively, you could use our crochet leaf pattern.
Save this pattern for later by pinning it to Pinterest.
