Fresh all year long
These crochet roses are super simple to make and are also slightly addictive. I started out trying to make a handful as a present for a grandma in hospital and I ended up with far more than I originally intended as I couldn't stop myself making 'just one' more to add to the bunch. The pattern is another freebie from the wonderful PlanetJune website (http://www.planetjune.com/). June has even used this pattern to teach crochet to beginners so it is very simple - but gives such lovely results!
Now if I had more time for 'self' crochet then I would start making some crochet roses to decorate Tea Towers with - every time I visit the talented 'Mrs Twins' blog I admire her lovely birdcages decorated with crochet roses - so very pretty.
Do you have any favourite crochet flower patterns? If you do then please share - just because the weather is gloomy outside doesn't mean that we can't bring a bit of Summer into our homes!
