Cute thanks for sharing

My senior crochet group will be meeting the first Wednesday in February, so I think this is going to be our class project. Now that I have my Chromebook, I can show them the tutorial on YouTube before we start. All my ladies are well acquainted with Double Crochet, so this should be a snap for them. They can turn them into brooches or attach them to wire stems.

Ah, I found these at the perfect time, the day before Valentines. That gives me plenty of time to make a couple of these to pass out to my fellow coworkers at the office party tomorrow. I always put off shopping til the last minute. Now I dont have to go anywhere.

These would look great with metal sticks cobered in that green florest tape with a silk leaf or two!

Really lovely and so easy I've been looking for a good rise pattern for ages thank you :0)))

What a great tutorial!!! I plan on making several this weekend. Now I will have roses throughout the entire year and in all different colors. Thanks very much. Blessings!

i think i will definitely try these for my grandma for valentines day.

I am going to get busy with these babies. I now have the time todo some of the things I really enjoy. I really appreciate the pattern and the tutorial as it lets me see before hand if I am doing it correctly. Thanks again.

I will definitely try these roses. How are stems made?

love it! Perfeft for my little princesses

Love the roses. Would love a print feature on all the patterns, without ads. Some patterns I can just click print, others I need to copy, paste and edit to get just the patterns.

If you use Google Chrome as your browser, you can download the cleanprint browser tool and it works great! I just printed this pattern off, just the pattern and the photo. not all the comments, not all the ads, not all the stuff you wouldn't want to print. Try it! It's worth it! Here is the link:

This is such a quick pattern with easy to follow directions! Thank you so much! What did you use for stems for the roses?

These are really nice roses and don't look too hard to crochet. Why can't the instructions be copied from the screen? I will have to write them down so that I can crochet "on the go". Thanks for such an interesting site and all the lovely patterns offered.

I had no problem in copying this pattern. I right clicked and clicked on print- it shows two pages but you only need one. The second has no instructions.
