Materials you’ll need:
- Crochet hook (appropriate size for your yarn)
- Worsted weight yarn in your desired rose color

1.Start with a slipknot:
- Create a slipknot by making a loop with the yarn end, passing the working end through the loop, and pulling it tight. This will secure the yarn on your crochet hook.
2. Chain stitches:
- Make a chain of 51 stitches. This will serve as the foundation chain for your rose.
3. Create the center of the rose:
- Skip the first three chains from the hook and work a single crochet stitch into the fourth chain. This will create the center of the rose.
4. Begin forming the petals:
- Chain 2.
- Skip one chain from the foundation chain and work 1 double crochet stitch into the next chain.
- Chain 2.
- Skip one chain from the foundation chain and work a slip stitch into the next chain.
- Repeat this pattern (1 double crochet, chain 2, skip 1 chain, slip stitch) until the end of the foundation chain.
5. Shaping the petals:
- Gently pull the foundation chain to gather the petals, creating a circular shape.
- Roll the rose petals slightly to give the flower depth and dimension.
6. Finishing the rose:
- Fasten off the yarn by cutting it, leaving a long tail for sewing.
- Starting from the outer edge of the rose, tightly roll the flower, securing it with the long tail of yarn as you go.
- Use a yarn needle to sew the rolled rose in place, stitching through the layers to secure them together.
7. Weave in loose ends:
- Use a yarn needle to weave in any loose ends to ensure a neat finish.
