    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.

    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.
    • Sunday, August 30th, 2015
      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.
