Here is a crochet curlicue rose you can crochet in just a few minutes. They look cute sewn on just about everything, perhaps a whole garden of them is in order!
Watch a video on how to crochet the rose:
To make a crochet curlicue rose, here’s what you’ll need:
- Yarn leftovers (I chose worsted weight for the roses shown)
- Crochet hook (I used a J hook for the roses shown)
- Tapestry Needle
Begin by making a chain. The longer the chain, the wider and fuller your rose will be. I began by chaining 12,
In the 4th chain from the hook, work 2 dc,
Next, work 3 dc in each chain all the way across. It will begin to curl up immediately, and by the time you get to the end, it will look like a rose.
You can use these same instructions to make a curlicue at this point, all you have to do is weave the ends. However for a rose, you’ll keep it coiled up as shown and stitch it together.
To seam it up, start by fastening it off,
Thread a tapestry needle,
I usually start with the outermost tail and tack down the edge with a stitch or two,
After that, thread the other tail with the tapestry needle and run it through the middle to secure.
And then maybe a few around to hold it together a bit more. I have found that if I don’t put enough stitches in, it tends to be a bit floppy. However, if you over stitch it, I have found that it flattens out and looses a lot of its dimension. A couple of well placed stitches are all you need.
To finish it off, tie off the back and weave in the ends.
Lovely! This one was about an inch and a half wide. Experiment with different yarn and hook sizes for a variety of different blooms.
