Creating a simple crochet rose motif is a delightful project for crafters of all skill levels. Whether you’re a beginner looking to learn the basics of crochet or an experienced crocheter seeking a quick and charming project, this free pattern description will guide you through the process.

Materials Needed:

  1. Yarn: Choose a yarn in your preferred color for the rose. A medium-weight yarn (worsted or aran) works well for this project.
  2. Crochet Hook: Select an appropriate hook size for your chosen yarn. Usually, a G or H (4mm-5mm) hook works nicely with medium-weight yarn.
  3. Scissors: For cutting the yarn.
  4. Yarn Needle: To weave in ends and assemble the rose.

Abbreviations Used:

  • Ch: Chain
  • Sl st: Slip Stitch
  • SC: Single Crochet
  • HDC: Half Double Crochet
  • DC: Double Crochet


Rose Base:

  1. Magic Ring: Start with a magic ring. If you’re not familiar with this technique, you can also chain 4 and join with a slip stitch to form a ring.
  2. Round 1: Chain 2 (counts as the first DC), then work 11 DC into the ring. Join with a slip stitch to the top of the starting chain. You should now have 12 DC in a circle.
  3. Round 2: Chain 1 (does not count as a stitch). In the same stitch as the join, work 1 SC. Then, work 2 HDC in each of the remaining 11 stitches. Join with a slip stitch to the first SC. You should have 24 stitches in this round.
  4. Fasten off and weave in the ends.

Rose Petals:

  1. Attach yarn: Join your yarn in any stitch around the outer edge of the rose base.
  2. Chain 3: This will count as your first DC.
  3. In the same stitch: Work 2 DC, 2 HDC, 1 SC, 2 HDC, and 2 DC. This creates one petal.
  4. Skip the next stitch on the base, and in the following stitch, repeat the petal pattern: 2 DC, 2 HDC, 1 SC, 2 HDC, and 2 DC.
  5. Continue this pattern around the outer edge of the base, making a total of 6 petals.
  6. Fasten off and weave in the ends.


  1. Using a yarn needle, weave in any loose ends to secure them.
  2. To shape the rose, gently roll the petals inward, starting from one end. Adjust the tightness of the roll to achieve your desired look.
  3. Secure the rolled rose with a few stitches or a small piece of matching yarn.
  4. Your crochet rose motif is now complete!

Feel free to make multiple roses in different colors and sizes to create beautiful embellishments for hats, scarves, bags, or any other crochet projects. These roses can also be attached to hairpins or used as decorative elements in various craft projects. Enjoy your crocheting!
