Certainly! Here’s a free crochet pattern to create a simple crochet rose flower. This pattern will guide you through the steps to make a beautiful rose with a long stem. Please note that crochet patterns often use abbreviations. I’ll include explanations for each abbreviation to make it easy to follow, even if you’re a beginner.
- Worsted weight yarn in the color of your choice for the petals
- Green worsted weight yarn for the stem and leaves
- Crochet hook appropriate for your yarn (usually size G or H works well)
- Yarn needle
- Stitch marker (optional)
- Ch: Chain
- Sc: Single Crochet
- Dc: Double Crochet
- Sl st: Slip Stitch
- Foundation: Start by chaining 26.
- Row 1: In the second chain from the hook, make 1 sc. Then, make 1 dc in the same chain. Skip 1 chain, then in the next chain, make 1 sc and 1 dc. Repeat from * to * across until you have 2 chains left. Skip 1 chain, then make 1 sc in the last chain. Turn your work.
- Row 2: Ch 1, 1 sc and 1 dc in the first sc of the previous row, then 1 sc and 1 dc in the next sc of the previous row. Repeat * to * across. Turn your work.
- Rows 3-5: Repeat Row 2 for the next 3 rows.
- Row 6: Ch 1, sc2tog (single crochet 2 together), sc2tog, repeat * to * across until you have 1 stitch left. Sc in the last stitch. Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing.
- Roll up the crocheted strip into a spiral, starting with the end where you made the sc2tog stitches. This will form the center of your rose.
- Thread the yarn needle with the long tail you left, and stitch through the layers of the rose to secure it in place.
- Attach the green yarn to the bottom of your rose (the end where you started the foundation chain).
- Row 1: Ch 1, sc in the same stitch where you attached the yarn. Sc in each stitch around the stem of the rose. Sl st to the first sc to join the round.
- Row 2: Ch 1, sc in each sc around. Sl st to the first sc to join the round.
- Repeat Row 2 until your stem is as long as you desire. Then, fasten off and weave in the ends.
- Attach the green yarn to the stem near the base of the rose.
- Row 1: Ch 8, sc in the 2nd chain from the hook and in each chain across. Sl st to the stem to secure the leaf. Fasten off and weave in the ends.
- Repeat this process to attach leaves wherever you like on the stem.
That’s it! You’ve created a beautiful crochet rose with a long stem. You can make multiple roses and arrange them in a bouquet or use them as embellishments for various projects. Enjoy your crocheting!
