Everything is coming up Roses!

Yes, it's true. On my quest to learn how to crochet, and to find the easy "Rose" pattern, I came across this one!


Yeah, I know, I got a little carried away, but can you blame me? adorable?   I admit, I love instant gratificational crafting! I am working on that.  I am still trying to develop patience.  But at least I can still look at you and my homies and say, "Yes, these are handmade, and I made them all by myself, so whut, whut??!!"

hehe, just keeding on my hyphyness.  
Anyhoo, can't you just see these adorning jackets, hair, lapels, etc?  I want to make some delicate ones out of that thin pretty yarn and adorn some t-shirts.  I CAN'T WAIT!!!!

Of course I am going to give up the pattern!  That's how I do!
Pattern:  Row 1: Chain 20-30, depending on how large you want your flower.
               Row 2:  In fourth chain from hook, Treble stitch 4 times. In every chain from there, Treble 5                times in each chain all the way till end, and finish off. 
Shape into flower.  It should already be trying to spiral itself when you are finished.  When you are ready to add it to your favorita project, tack on with a few stitches to hold in place.  THAT IS IT!
Yay,  happy crocheting and let me know how your roses turn out.   To further inspire you, here is a little ditty (Rose's Turn) from my my all time favorite Broadway musical.  Bette Midler did a fantastico job!



Omg,  I love that performance!  Gives me shivers!  If you haven't seen this play, there are several TV adaptions,  rent it!  It is the best musical EVER.  ok, well, I am not a musical buff whatsoever, but I first saw Natalie Wood's version when I was about 6 or 7, and I was captivated by every song, and even the subject matter!   Aye Dios!

Happy Hump Day friends!

Such pretty roses! I always wanted to learn to crochet, and tried... but I was so slow that I gave up almost immediately. Love seeing what you did!

Oh I have been escared for a long time too! I am still very much a beginner, but just take baby steps. Once you get the hang of holding the hook, it is on!
