A simple knitted rose

13 Jun

A while ago, I was trying to find a good pattern for a knitted rose. Something simple, but that looked, well, rose-like. I came across this pattern, which seemed like it was easy enough to follow, and looked good too. I tried making a slightly smaller version of it first by making slightly shorter rows, but that meant that it didn’t roll up enough. So I tried making it as per the pattern, but it seemed to curl in on itself too much, and I couldn’t really see the lacy pattern. Mine just didn’t seem to open up as much as the photos on the original post.

So I tried it again, but this time I did it all in stocking stitch, and omitted the lacy pattern. I figured that given the tendency of stocking stitch to curl slightly at the edges, it might work better. I’m really happy with how this one turned out, it rolls up really nicely and has a much more defined shape than the other one. I think I might turn this one into a hair clip, but I also think it would be good sewn onto a hat. The amended pattern I used is below if you’re interested in giving it a go!
