    It is simple to make different sized layered rose flowers by adjusting the beginning chain, just keep it an odd number. The purple flower was 41 chains. The red flower was 31 chains. The small hot pink flower was 21 chains with a size H crochet hook.

      Can you send me directions of crocheting a rose beside making a long strip and circuling. I have made them but forgotten how. Thank you

      Can you give some details about how to stitch the rose together? I must mot be doing it correctly because it is spreading out rather than gathering in a cluster. I am using a tapestry needle and crochet cotton. By the time I have wound it up about half way it starts spreading out, rather than looking like a rose. Thank you

      Hi, just wondering what size flower this will make with the chain 51, so I have a point of reference for making different sizes? Thanks!

      I am unable to download most patterns so I have to find ones that I can print. Frustrating. I'm not very computer savy. I love what I see on pinterest but I usually end up without the onfo I need unless I can copy it by hand. Love your stuff!!

        Thanks Susan for the feedback. I will see what I can do to make the patterns printable.

      Hi Cindy! Just stopping by to say, "Hello!" and let you know that I pinned this gorgeous Free Easy Crochet Rose Pattern on one of my crafting boards a year or so ago, and it's been re-pinned almost 8,000 times. People really like it (as do I... It's so pretty)! Thanks so much for sharing!

      Is the HDC (it's called HDC, btw, for Half Double Crochet) in your pattern British or American? For the British hdc is the American sc.

      Please specify.

        Sorry, I am using American terms for the pattern.

      I think in row 2 that the 4 HD crochet and 5 HD crochet are still part of the
      (sl st in ch 2 space, ch 1 4 HD crochet, ch 1, sl st) in a chain 2 space and then
      (sl st 2 space, ch 1 5 HD crochet, ch 1, sl st) in the next ch 2 space. I think the other person who was confused about row 2 is that she tried what I first tried, which was 4 HD in one ch 2 space and 5 HD in the next ch 2 space. It did not look like the picture so I tried the way mentioned above. By the way, thanks so much for posting this. I've been trying to make flowers from other patterns and this is the first time I've been happy with the result.

      hey Cindy,
      thanks for sharing the pattern. I love the vibrant colors, too.
      I just get confused with the number of chains... Initially you say 51, later 41. The lower number might be the correct one... as my chain 2 spaces are many many more than yours on the picture. Would you mind double checking? I think another lady commented on this. Thanks!
      • Thursday, November 12th, 2015
        Kerstin, the amount of chains determines the size of flower. Hope this helps.
