Rose - Crochet Flower Embellishment

I'd like to introduce myself :) 

My name is Rhondda and you can find me at my blog, Oombawka Design - or my Facebook Page.

You can read more about me and my love of yarn, my Littles and Designing if you are interested :) 

I hope to inspire you with some lovely flower designs over the next little while :) Here is my first FREE Flower Embellishment Design - Rose.

This is a very simple pattern - worked flat and then rolled into the rose shape.

Any questions please let me know, I would be very happy to help!

Materials Used: Lion Brand Recycled Cotton Yarn & 4.00 mm Crochet Hook (but you will be able to make this with most yarn & hook combinations)

R1: Chain 121 stitches [121]
R2: 1 hdc in the 2nd st from the hook and in each of the first 5 sts; 1 dc in each remaining st across, chain 2, turn [120]
R3: 1 dc in the 2nd st from the hook and in each dc across (*do not dc in the first 6 hdc of the previous row), chain 1, turn [114]

R4: [1 ss in the 1st stitch, (2 dc, 1 tr, 2 dc) in the next stitch, 1 ss in the next stitch] repeat across, finish off, leaving a long tail for sewing.

I used my rose to embellish one of the lovely headbands I crocheted using the Flower Girl Cottage Headband Pattern (also Free) and she has provided a beautiful flower embellishment of her own - here is the link to access the 5-Petal Daisy Free Crochet Pattern.
