I have always been fascinated with flowers! Though I am not a girly type, there is this feeling in me that tickles when I see one. Rose is one of the many beautiful flowers ever existed. It is known to symbolized unending love. Some say white roses is a symbol of purity and honesty. So when a guy who is courting you gives you a bunch, they say it means, he has good intentions for you and really like you.
In a crochet world, there are many ways to make a flower. There are lot of tutorials to make them, but one thing is bugging me because, most tutorials around needs to roll the piece and sew it to make it into a flower. As much as others hated to weave in ends, sewing is one of the thing we don’t always wanna do on crochet. On this post, I would like to share to you a no sew crochet rose applique.
- Cotton or acrylic yarns or any yarn of your choice. Any weight will do, but the size of the crochet rose flower will depend on it. In this post, I use fingering weight mercerized cotton yarn in multi-color pattern.
- Crochet hook. I use Japan IMIA hook No. 7 or 0.95 mm
Here are the stitches I use: (in English crochet terms)
- MR for Magic Ring
- CH for Chain
- SC for Single Crochet Stitch. If you’re a beginner, here is a helpful tutorial on how to make single crochet stitches
- DC for Double crochet
- FO for Fasten Off
- SK for Skip
- ST for Stitch / STS for Stitches
PATTERN for No Sew Crochet Rose Applique:
- R1: SC in a MR, (CH3, SC) 3x. You will now have 3 Ch3 spaces.
- R2: [(CH3, SC)2x on the next Ch3 spaces, (CH3, SC) on the next stitch] around. You will now have 9 CH3 spaces. Pull the MR to close the gap.
- R3: (CH3, SC) on each of the CH3 spaces. You will now have 9 CH3 spaces.
- R4: CH3, then turn. (DC, CH2, 2xDC) on the next CH3 spaces, (2xDC, Ch2, 2xDC) on the next 8 CH3 spaces, 2xDC on the next ST, CH2
- R5: Note that you will work on the back (Right Side) of the piece and notice the CH spaces from the previous round. Do the following STS on those CH3 spaces.
(2xDC, Ch2, 2xDC) around until all Ch3 spaces are used
You will also notice that it is divided into 2 by the SC STS. Do the 2nd “2xDC” on the other half of the CH3 spaces. Since we already have 2xDC and Ch2 on the last round, 2xDC on the same CH3 spaces for the first CH3 spaces.
You are working towards the center on this part. I managed to make 16 sets of (2xDC, Ch2, 2xDC) on this round.
This is the result of R5 after completing the whole round. Looking good for a flower already right? We will make it prettier on the next rounds.
- R6: Ch2, turn. 4xDc on the next Ch2 spaces. Sk2 STS, SC on the next space, SK2 STS, [4xDc on the next CH2 space, Sk2 STS, SC on the next Space, SK2 STS] 7x
- R7: [5xDc on the next CH2 space, Sk2 STS, SC on the next Space, SK2 STS] 8x
- R8: [6xDc on the next CH2 space, Sk2 STS, SC on the next Space, SK2 STS] 9x, SK2 STS, Sc on the next, 6xDC on the last Ch2 spaces, SL ST on the SC ST parallel to the last petal.
