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)
  • Scissors
  • 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.

  1. These roses look nicer and more realistic (as far as yarn can) than any other pattern I have previously seen. I look forward to making several sets of these to use on a wreath and possibly a corsage.
