Certainly! Here’s a free crochet pattern to make a long-stemmed rose. Crocheting a rose can be a fun and creative project, and these roses make lovely decorations or gifts.
- Worsted weight yarn in the color of your choice for the rose petals (usually red or pink for a classic rose).
- Green worsted weight yarn for the stem and leaves.
- Crochet hook size G (4.0 mm).
- Fiberfill stuffing.
- Yarn needle.
- Chain (ch)
- Slip Stitch (sl st)
- Single Crochet (sc)
- Half Double Crochet (hdc)
- Double Crochet (dc)
- Treble Crochet (tr)
Rose Petals (Make 3-5, depending on how full you want your rose):
Note: Work in continuous rounds.
- Round 1: Start with a magic ring (or ch 4 and join with a sl st to form a ring). Inside the ring, work 12 dc. Pull the ring tight and join with a sl st to the first dc.
- Round 2: Ch 2 (counts as first hdc), 2 hdc in the same stitch, 2 hdc in each stitch around. Join with a sl st to the top of the beginning ch 2. (24 hdc)
- Round 3: Ch 1, sc in the same stitch and in each stitch around. Join with a sl st to the first sc. (24 sc)
- Round 4: Ch 4, skip one stitch, sl st in the next stitch. Repeat * around. You should have 12 ch-4 spaces.
- Round 5: In each ch-4 space, work the following: (2 dc, tr, 2 dc, sl st). Repeat this pattern in each ch-4 space around.
- Fasten off and weave in the ends.
- Using green yarn, chain the desired length for your stem (usually 10-12 inches), plus an additional 2-3 inches.
- Starting in the second chain from the hook, work 1 sc in each chain across. This forms the stem. Fasten off and weave in the ends.
Leaves (Make 2-3):
- Chain 8.
- In the second chain from the hook, work 1 sc. Then, in the next chain, work 1 hdc. In the next 2 chains, work 1 dc in each. In the next 2 chains, work 1 hdc in each. Finally, work 1 sc in the last chain.
- Rotate your work to the other side of the foundation chain. Work the same stitches in the opposite direction: 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc in each of the next 2 chains, 1 hdc in each of the next 2 chains, and 1 sc in the last chain.
- Fasten off, leaving a long tail for attaching the leaves to the stem.
- Attach the leaves to the stem near the top.
- Attach the rose petals to the top of the stem, making sure they are evenly spaced and cover the base of the leaves.
- Optionally, you can add a few more leaves lower down the stem for a more natural look.
- Stuff the bottom of the rose with fiberfill to give it shape and support.
And there you have it, a beautiful crochet long-stemmed rose! Adjust the number of petals and leaves to your liking for different looks and experiment with different yarn colors to create roses in various shades. Enjoy your crochet project!
