CROCHET PATTERNS (Crochet Flower Pattern #101 Wild Rose) – 365 Crochet Flowers Bouquet Project

 

Wild Rose crochet flower pattern Irish Crochet Style

The first 100 flowers in the 365 Crochet Flower Bouquet are a mix between regular crochet, Irish crochet and emboidery stitches, as you might have noticed. For the next few patterns, I have decided to celebrate the Irish Crochet Lace by creating a few designs in plain white cotton re-interpreting traditional techniques and patterns in my way.

First pattern is a wild rose with 3 petals. Rather than diving straight into old patterns, I'm going to introduce techniques little by little as they suit the purpose and of course, as they suit the flower I design. I prefer the 3-dimensional look of my patterns, therefore my intention is not to create a flat motif, but rather a 3D shape.

About Irish Crochet: Padding Cord

Traditional Irish Crochet uses a padding cord around which you work the regular crochet stitches. It is a few times thicker than the yarn you use for the motiv and its purpose is to give texture and stability to the motif. While you work stitches over the cord, you pull the cord in order to give the leaf or petal edge a certain shape. There are several methods to make your own cord, if you cannot buy it, i.e. make a chain of ch and crochet around it, or fold the thread until you get the thickness you need and crochet over it.

Crochet Flower Pattern

Start: using 1.75mm steel hook, make 6ch, join with sl st, 1chWild Rose crochet large petal

R1: make 16dc in the ring, join with sl st, 1ch, turn work

R2: large petal starts here *1sl st in next dc, 8ch and sl st in next dc in the ring, 1ch turn

R3: 16dc on the loop, sl st in the ring, turn

R4: 4ch, 4tr in first dc on the petal, tr in next 2dc, dc in the next 8dc, skip the last 5dc from R3 = 14sts worked on this row, 1ch turn

R5: 8dc, 2tr, 4tr in next tr – so far you're working in 11sts from R4, meaning that you'll skip the next 3tr and continue with 4ch, 1dc in the petals’ ring, 4ch, sl st in the last dc in the ring at base of petal = large petal, 4dc on the ring.

. Repeat from * once and finish with a sl st at base of first petal, turn work and we’ll make a smaller petal between the two larger ones.Wild Rose crochet petals

R6: small petal starts here 6ch, sl st at the base of petal on the left, 1ch, turn

R7: 12dc on the loop, sl st in the ring at base of petal on the left, turn

R8: 4ch, 4tr in first dc on the petal, tr in next 2dc, dc in the next 6dc, tr in next 2dc, 4tr in last dc on the petal, 4ch, sl st in the last dc on the petal, dc in the ring at base of petal on the left = small petal.

Work 32sc around the petal on the left, (1sc in the next dc in ring, 1 picot) x 7= 7 stamens, 1sc, next work 32sc around the petal on the left, 22 sc around the smaller petal. Fasten off.

StemRose crochet stem over padding cord

Fold the thread with the length 3 inches 8 times and work over sc with 2 ends of thread. Pull the inner thread to shape the stem while you are working. The more you pull, the more it curls.

Assembly

    I’m afraid you lost me:

    R1: make 16dc in the ring, join with sl st, 1ch, turn work

    R2: large petal starts here *1sl st in next “sc”, 8ch and sl st in next “sc” – did you mean to say “dc” in both instances?

    R4: 4ch, 4tr in first dc on the petal, tr in next 2dc, dc in the next 8dc, 1ch turn – am I to understand that (after the 4tr in 1st dc, tr in next 2dc, dc in next 8dc) I will have 5dc remaining from the “16dc on the loop” from R3? If that is the case, I do not understand how I am supposed to get from R4 to R5.

    Love this one.

  3. Camelia says:

    Hi Nancy,

    sc should have been dc, you're right.

    You got right also the fact that on R4 you will not go all the way to work on top of all the dc from R3. You turn and continue with R4. At the end of R5 you make a dc at base of petal that connects the petal to the ring. Next is the 4ch and sl st in the same st at base of petal, and continue with dc in the next 4dc in the ring.

    The petal has a shape of an ear. To answer your last question, R4 is the middle row of the ear, R5 is the edge.

    You continue with another large petal and after that you make the small petal between them. Finish up with an edging of sc worked on the RS starting from the small petal, then the large petal on the left, then the fringed edge on the dc sts in the ring where you haven't done any work yet, and last is the second large petal.

    I hope this will help. C.

    • Nancy says:

      In R5, it starts off by saying “8dc, 2tr, 4tr in next dc” – do you mean “4tr in next ‘tr’ (instead of “4tr in next ‘dc’); at this point, I will have 5tr remaining from the previous row. Do I skip over those 5tr and then make a dc at “base of petal that connects the petal to the ring?”

      Sorry to be such a pain!!

      • Camelia says:

        Fair comment, again :-) you’re not in trouble :-)))))))

        R4 had 14sts.

        R5: 8dc, 2tr, 4tr in next tr – so far you’re working in 11sts from R4, meaning that you’ll skip the next 3tr and continue with 4ch, 1dc in the petals’ ring, 4ch, sl st in the last dc in the ring at base of petal = large petal, 4dc on the ring.

        I think it is finally correct.

  4. Nancy says:

    In R5, I meant to say that I would have 3tr remaining (not 5tr remaining), but then I become confused again when the instructions state (after “8dc, 2tr, 4tr in next dc”) “4ch, 1dc in the petals’ ring, 4ch, sl st in the last dc in the ring…” Do I make 4ch before the 1dc as well as after the 1dc, and before the sl st?

    • Camelia says:

      Yes, that’s right.

      the first 4ch and 1dc in the petals’ ring will connect the petal to the ring and the next 4ch and sl st will bring work back at the R4 level. If it doesn’t make sense to you, just skip the second 4ch and sl st, continue with the dc in the next 4dc in the ring and the second large petal. It will not chage the appearance.
