My nieces love that I can crochet these quick and make them a headband with the crochet rose flower as they are such a  super quick and easy project. 

It's a great quick easy crochet project, the kids love making a simple chain to go around their heads, whilst I crochet the rose to add to it. 

I love that I can use my odds and ends of yarn to create such beautiful crochet flowers. That I can add to hats scarves or anything I think deserves a gorgeous flower applique on. 

To croche this Rose Flower 

You should be able to 
single crochet, 
double crochet, 
And the Pattern written in US terms

Any size of hook and yarn is suitable for this project,

I used Double Knit (worsted weight ) and a size 9 (3.500mm hook for the one in the pictures)
Leave at least a 10" length for sewing.

My Favourite Place to BUY my yarn and crochet accessories has to be Deramores I am Never disappointed and they always have fantastic deals on - SEE DEALS HERE *


Chain 57.

Row 1 (Wrong Side): Dc into the 7th ch from hook (5 skipped chs count as first dc plus ch 2), 
*ch 2, skip next 2 chs, (dc, ch 2, dc) in next ch; repeat from * across the 36 sps  (18 V spaces in created)
Please Note for Row 2: You will be working the petals into the Vs and sc into  the ch2 spaces)
Row 2: Ch 3, turn; 5 dc in next ch-2 sp, sc in next ch-2 sp, (6 dc in next ch-2 sp, sc in next ch-2 sp) 5times, (9 dc in next ch-2 sp, sc in next ch-2 sp) 6 times, (10trc in next ch-2 sp, sc in next sp)  repeat until end, 

finish with a 10trc, leave a 10" length for sewing.

You Will now have a length of petals and it will be automatically wanting to curl in on itself (this is how you create the rose, by rolling into this natural curve working from the smaller to the larger petals end

 With the right side facing and beginning with the first petal made, 
start to roll the rose, to create the shape. 

At this point, you can make it as tight or as loose as you want,
 just make sure you secure it at every petal   

Then thread the needle with ending yarn and sew to secure.

I like leaving a long tail so I can attach in the same color to whatever crochet project it is going on.

I LOVE crocheting flowers using up odd scraps of yarn. I think one day when i have enough I am going to attach them to a canvas and make a beautiful wall hanging.
