Crochet Rose Series #2: Lucie & Anna

These two patterns represents the fragile and delicate beauty of my two grandmothers, who are both in their late 90’s. They have a vintage feel to them and are also deep roses, meaning suitable for flower arrangements and not brooches. Both these roses are formed by making loose petals and sewing them together.

Abbreviations (American Terminology):

beg = begin, ch = chain, cl = cluster, dc = double crochet, hdc = half double crochet, rnd = round, sc = single crochet, ss = slip stitch

#3 Lucie

This rose has 16 loose petals – 3 in the darkest colour, 4 in the next colour and 9 in the lightest colour.

Fold the centre petal en sew the other 2 dark petals around to the central petal.

Fold the other 4 petals in the same way slightly overlapping each other and sew to the dark petals.
