Irish Rose Crochet Pattern
This pretty rose can be used as an embellishment for hats, purses, clothing and granny squares. It is rather simple to make and once you get the hang of it you can make dozens of them while watching your favorite shows. Irish Rose is a terrific way to use up leftover yarn.
I used little bits of leftover Caron Simply Soft yarn and a Size E/4 (3.5mm) hook.
To make this Rose you need to know how to :
- Chain (ch)
- Slip Stitch (sl)
- Single Crochet (sc)
- Half Double Crochet (hdc)
- Double Crochet (dc)
Starting Instructions are for a Magic Circle BUT I include traditional instructions for starting in Parenthesis.
1. Magic Circle 5. (or chain 5 and join with slip stitch to form ring) (5 sc)
2. 2 sc in each st, join with sl st to first sc. (or 10 sc in ring, sl st to first sc) (10 sc) break off. Using second color join with sl st to first st. Do not turn at end of rounds.
3. Join new color in sl1sc in same stitch as sl st. *ch 4, skip 1 sc, 1 sc in next sc * rep around ending with
