They are gorgeous Lucy! I've been making loads of roses lately that are whoppers so it's lovely to see some wee ones. Not only are they fun to make but the uses are endless! I must whip some up pronto!

Have a fab weekend hon.


Yes!!! I too have tried so many of those rosey patterns but none of them have turned out like I had hoped. Yours on the other hand looks just right.
Super excited to try it out.
Have a happy weekend lovely lady. xx

I made a couple roses just like those! (My first time crocheting a flower!) I even followed your pattern to make leaves (which was my first time making leaves as well!) I think I may give your pattern a try. It looks pretty simple! You always do such a wonderful job with your tuts!


seriously, so pretty, and yes, i've been looking for an easy and sweet pattern around and i've yet to do so. this just might be the winner!

Oh Lucy they're gorgeous! I surfed just last week looking for the 'right' crochet flowers, hoping for a pretty rose. Although I found some lovely ones, the patterns left me scratching my head. I'm not great with crochet patterns & get easily disheartened when I read them. I'm really looking forward to your tutorial.


awesome! I'll be watching for the tutorial!
Do you have a ripple blanket boarder pattern somewhere?

Adorable roses.. I can see them decorating so many things.. I look forward to the pattern. The leaves are also perfect! Sending hello from Oregon in the Americas. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Everything is coming up roses for you, and for anyone reading your blog!
This is so beautiful!!!!
You are just the bee's knees, honest you are.


Beautiful! I can't wait to give them a try, Mother's Day is coming up here is Oz and my mum loves roses :)


Aww sweet little roses Lucy! The leaves are really perfect too... can't wait for the tutorial....we will all be going around with handbags full of roses... are you too young to remember the advert for Roses chocolates.. "Roses grow on you"! Hugs, Jill x


Lovely roses, so pretty :-)




Oh thank you so much. I can't wait for this tute. I bought some organic cottons recently for the very purpose of making some flowers and have been trying a few, and roses are a must (so far I have some sweet violets and a curled up daisy that looks a bit like a dead spider). Thanks for generosity in sharing how you do things.


Fabulous! You truly are a wonder! ☺


I can't wait to try your roses - I have just been struggling trying to follow a pattern and I was on my way to bed but thought oh I will just have a quick look at my blog and then I saw that you had posted couldn't wait to read it and oh dear its after midnight! night night ;)


Lucy, your new rosy posies are a great design. I so agree with you about keeping it simple in developing crocheting designs. That's what keeps us hooking away.

Best wishes from NYC. xo

Cool, very colorful idea. Great for women who want to spend time on somethin that they enjoy doing :)



This is exactly what I've been looking for, so I can't wait to see the pattern, like you, I have battled with complicated flower patterns previously. I'm hoping this isn't beyond me, as I've only been crocheting since April, but am well and truly hooked (ha ha). Many thanks for your clear and concise way of explaining it all.

What a wonderful pattern and your instructions are so easy to follow. These little roses are going to be perfect accessories.


These are lovely. I've been looking for the right rose pattern for some dear friends, and yours is just perfect!


These are adorable - I love anything to do with Roses and these are just perfect!


You are amazing! The roses are so sweet, and I love your new leaves too. I can't wait for the pattern, I have some ideas brewing. :-)
