Crochet Rose with Leaves Tutorial


This is the last day of Hair Clip week.  It is pretty bittersweet for me.  Although,  I love making hair clips and I love making tutorials, this is taking out a good chunk of my time!  I hope you like this tutorial.  It is a bit of a rerun if you've seen the Vintage Cloche Pattern

What you will need: 

Crochet Hook size: H/8 - 5.00
Pink Yarn
Green Yarn
Hair Clip
Needle and thread
Glue Gun

Step 1: chain 20
Step 2: Double Crochet 2 times in the 3rd chain from the hook
Step 3: Double Crochet 3 times in the next chain
Step 4: Repeat step 3 for the rest of the chains
Step 5: Finish off, leaving a 10 inch tail.  Coil the rose and sew the rose together with the long tail.
Step 6: Weave in tails.

Step 7: Chain 10
Step 8: slip stitch in the second chain from the hook and in next chain, single crochet in next, treble crochet in the next 3.
Step 9: single crochet in the next, slip stitch in the next 2
Step 10: working around the chain, slip stitch in the same chain and in the next chain, single crochet in the next, treble crochet in the next 3, single crochet in the next, slip stitch in the last 2 stitches. Finish off leaving a 10 inch tail.
Step 11: Make another leaf.  Arrange the flower and leaves.
Step  12: Sew the leaves and flower together, weave in tails.
Step 13: (not shown) Sew on hair clip.  Glue to secure threads.

Pssst.  This would be excellent as a broach on a vintage coat!  Just swap the hair clip for a broach pin.  Or keep the hair clip and clip it to a crocheted bag or hat.  The possibilities are endless!
