The very iconic rose, and probably also very popular rose to make. It is very cute, wide and you can always make bigger and brighter. This rose als has been used lot in Irish lace or irish crochet.
In Ireland you can find wild roses, they are very common rose. The rose what hasn't been cut after blooming and has grown out of its english rose.Irish rose has symbolic meaning in celtic culture. English banned irish to use rose as their symbol, so on 16th century it became patriotic sign what is still used novadays.
Irish rose is very easy to make, needs a little bit technique, so you can always watch video below. In video and method I make slip stitch to close off the chain row, but in chart they use single crochet. Both are fine to use. You can make every row with different colour, also you can use any type of wool. If you want more layers, then you can keep going with layers and adding 2 chains for chain rows every alternative row and 2 double crochets each row.
- DK wool if you like
- 3mm or 3.5 mm hook
- needle and scissors
Row 1: make a slip or magic ring, pick up and chain (ch) 2, now make 7 single (sc) crochet into the ring, pull from another end to close the ring and slip stitch (ss) to around ch 2 space.
Row 2: ch 2 and make 1 half double (hdbl) to same space, then make 2 hdbl to each sc, until you are back at the ch2 space, ss to top of the ch 2.
