    I don’t know how to knit…. only crochet…. maybe now it’s time to learn!!! I’m sad I can’t make this rose. :-(

  2. Doris Fandal says:

    I can’t knit either; is there a crochet pattern for this rose?

  3. Yup flowers says:

    Very nice and beautiful

  4. meggie says:

    I want to have a go at it but the beginning part is confusing. the line starting with R3 seems to have a mistake in it. Is it R3:K the R5: K9,m1,K1?

    thank you for the clarification!


    R1: K 2nd and WS rows P

    R3: K R5: K9, m1, K1 = 11st

    R7: K10, m1, K1 = 12st
