Today I share with you two beautiful roll up rose patterns, which are worked in rows and then rolled up, sewn together to form roses. These roses have an almost vintage classical feel and will make delicate brooches or other accessories.
Abbreviations and stitch explanations (American Terminology):
ch – chain, dc – double crochet stitch, hdc – half double crochet, rep – repeat, sc – single crochet stitch, sp – space, ss – slip stitch, sp – space, st – stitch, tch – turning chain,
- Wrap the yarn over hook and insert in the next stitch, wrap the yarn over hook and draw yarn the desired length of the puff stitch. You should have three loops on the hook.
- Repeat step one in the same stitch twice.
- Wrap the yarn over hook and pull through all the loops on the hook.
- Wrap the yarn over hook and pull through the loop on the hook to secure the puff stitch.
Picot: 3 ch, ss in the 1st ch
This pattern is based on the rose pattern similar on Fionitta.com and the one I have used in my Rose Mandala pattern. I have changed it a bit to make the petals more frilly and something different.
Start with Pink and make 119 ch.
Row 1: 1 dc in 8th ch from hook, *2 ch, skip 2 ch, 1 dc in next ch; rep from * to end, turn. (= 38 sps).
Row 2: (3 ch, puff st, 3 ch, ss) in the 1st sp, *(ss, 3 ch, puff st, 3 ch, ss) in the next sp; rep from * up to last 12 sps. Fasten off. Join with Green in the dc directly after the petal just completed, [2 ch, 1 sc in the next dc, 2 ch, 1 sc in the next dc, 6 ch, ss in the same sc (forms the leaf loops)], 6 times with the last loop in the tch sp. Fasten off and do not turn work.
Row 3: Join again with Green with sc at the same place as previous row in the 1st green sc, [(3 dc, 2 hdc, 1 sc, picot, 1 sc, 2 hdc, 3 dc, ) in 6 ch loop, 1 sc in next sc] 6 times. Fasten off.
Roll the rose as follows: start with Pink with right side inside. End with the leaves joining each other perfectly. Pin and sew.
This rose is formed with 3 rows. I have changed the colour with each row to create depth and make the rose more interesting.
Start with colour 1 (darkest) and make 56 ch.
Row 1: 1 dc in the 6th ch from hook, *skip 1 ch, (1 dc, 2 ch, 1 dc) in the next ch; rep from * to end, turn. Fasten off.
Row 2: with colour 2 (medium): 3 ch, (1 dc, 2 ch, 2 dc) in the 1st 2 ch sp, *(2 dc, 2 ch, 2 dc) in the next 2 ch sp; rep from * up to the last sp, (2 dc, 2 ch, 1 dc) in the last sp, turn = 26 2 ch sps). Fasten off.
Row 3: with colour 3 (lightest): 3 ch, 5 dc in the 1st 2 ch sp, *skip 2 dc, 1 sc between the 4 dc, 6 dc in the next 2 ch sp; rep from * to end, ending with 1 sc in the last st. Fasten off.
Roll up with right side to the inside and sew together as you roll.
