    Thank you for the pattern. I have crocheted for many years and had a rose pattern but decided to try yours and like it much better. I am making them for my mother in law at the Nursing Home and her friend Rose to enjoy on their table in the dining room. I am sure they will brighten their day. They will enjoy them and I enjoyed making them. Thanks again

    How do u print your patterns off with out copy and save

    • Rachel Choi says:

      Barbara, you can use the print function in your internet browser. For most browsers you’ll click go to the menu bar at the top and click on “File” then “print”. Each page should print out nice and neatly, since they are all coded to be printer friendly.

      Rose: If you happen to use Google Chrome as your browser, go to the Drop Down under FILE and select Save Page As…. Good luck!

  5. Kathy Dittoe says:

    Hello Barbara, I am new to crocheting and reading instructions.and would like clarification on Row 1. When I work “across until 1 ch remains, From what point am I beginning the repeat.

    Do I repeat from the beginning in the 5th chain from hook? thanks, Kathy

    • Rachel Choi says:

      Hi Kathy!
      The repeat will be: (ch 2, skip 2 ch, [dc, ch 2, dc] in next ch) across
      You can tell where the repeat is by matching up the parentheses/brackets such as the ( ) or the [ ]

    I can’t wait to start on making these! I wanted to check- if I use these on pieces, do you mind if I sell them?

  7. Carolyn says:

    I am really enjoying using your rose pattern I am making a bridal bouquet as a keepsake, It is
    very easy but looks lovely. Thank you so much for sharing your pattern.

  8. Mallory says:

    Thank you so much for sharing your pattern! This is the prettiest rose I have made thus far and I am so happy to have found you! Thank you for helping to keep the craft alive. It is through thoughtful people like you that others are inspired to pick up that hook and learn to crochet. This was one of my first projects and I felt that if I could make something as pretty as your rose on one of my first few attempts, then I might as well keep on learning and now I have just finished my first sweater for a woman and have attached a few of your pretty roses. Thank you so much!

    THANK YOU THANK YOU soooooo much… I just made your rose as a practice rose. It came out so beautiful that I am going to put it and another together with your leaf pattern on a package of a baby blanket that is for a very wonderful friend of ours. I am going to put the roses on instead of a paper bow on the package. I am so happy to have found your pattern, again, THANK YOU SOOOO much.

  14. Denise says:

    Hi. Thanks for the lovely pattern. I just have a clarification question.

    Your pattern states:

    Row 2: ch 3, turn, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in first ch-2 space, *skip next ch-2 space,
    (ch 2, 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next ch-2 space, repeat from * across until 1 dc
    remains, dc in last dc
    Row 3: turn, *9 dc in next ch-2 space, (sl st, ch 1, sl st, ch 1) in next ch-2 space,
    repeat from * across, finish off.

    So for row 3 – do I crochet only in the ch-2 space made by skipped ch-2 space in row 2? Or do I work in the ch-2 space also created by the V-stitch (ch 2 2dc, ch2 2dc)?

    Does my question make sense? In short, how many 9 dc petals should I have when finished?
    Thank you so much!

    Is there a way to make the flower smaller and bigger?
