Hi, I am looking for the SWEET PEA TOTE crochet pattern. Thank you

Jill Wood

Looks like a GREAT project, however none of the images open.


Thank you very much for generously teaching how to create this cure Rose.


This is the best, cutest and easiest pattern for roses by far that I have ever found. so easy and simple. Love them soooooooooooo much! my mom loves the decor I have been making out of them.

The step that states 2trs means to put two of the same stitch into that middle chain. In America, of course, that means you are putting two “double crochets” into that one middle chain.
Thought I would post this in case it is confusing in the USA. Be sure to change your printed pattern with the changes the author has on page 1 which so expertly converts the UK to USA.
Btw, many, many thanks to the author for the simplest and most beautiful flower crochet pattern I have ever tried! Bless you!


I've tried a few roll up flower patterns and yours is by far the quickest and least complicated to follow, yet in my opinion produces the most attractive result! Thanks so much for your wonderful detailed tutorial.

I have made in excess of 50 of these roses for my daughter's wedding. I made her bouquet and then button holes for the groom, best man, parents and bridesmaids.


If possible, I’d like to be added to your subscription list. Thanks


Thanks for sharing this easy pattern. The roses look beautiful.Already made seven today and more will follow.
Will post it shortly on my Facebook page Calming crafts.

I used the cupcake hat pattern from your site, turned out well. Very cute. I made it in blue and gold, since my new nephew lives in Sweden.


Where can I print this in a simple form pages would take a lot of ink do you have books for sale I'd love to make these roses


Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful pattern X It's a wonderful tutorial. x


Thanks for putting up all the stitches. I learned to make a granny square at 10 yrs. old from a neighbor one afternoon and never learned the names of different stitches. I more or less copied by sight.This is the exact pattern I've been looking for and also a great reminder of what the different stitches are!I do believe I'm running out of ink from all the different links on your site, lol!


Oh you are so right, these gorgeous blooms are rather addictive. Having to tear myself away and go to my bed, dreaming of what woolly delights my stash might hold to make more of these sweeties.Thank you so much for sharing and making your tutorials so easy for the hooking newbie x


Fabulous! and fabulous i structions with photos! I am a left and have trouble getting things oriented properly but had to problem with this pattern, even substituting UK:US . I am crocheting yellow roses to embellish a Texas state flag tissue box cozy that I improvised for my cousin!s birthday.
Thank you!

THANK YOU Lucy, in March 2013, I met a family in Toronto Canada, who’s 3rd child was born with SANFILIPPO SYNDROME, they were told “ there is NO medication there is NO cure, life expectancy for these children is to the mid teens” Elisa was their 3rd child, Next visit to the hospital the desperate mother asked “Is there Research being done?” “ NOT IN CANADA the government doesn’t have enough funds, for all the rare decease’s out there”.
WELL, THIS MOTHER JUST HAD TO DO SOMETHING so she started the SANFILIPPO CHILDREN’S RESEARCH FOUNDATION “ www.alifeforelisa.org. see “Why the Red Rose” became their symbol of hope....on reading this story, with tears flowing, I thought “I have red yarn, I’m going to see if I can make Elisa & her sister a red rose, I HAD NEVER CROCHETED, but found your pattern....printed it, bought a crochet needle and step by step, I made two little red roses, made them into hair clips. Ladies at the families home thought they were cute, so I made more & more in many colours, others gave me ideas, baby headbands bands, ear warmers (knitted) with attached rose, cosy coffee warmers, mitts, etc all with roses from LUCY’S ATTIC.
I make & sell, raising awareness for Sanfilippo ( A CHILDHOOD ALZHEIMERS)
“ROSES for SANFILIPPO” has raised over $21.000.00
The family have raised over 7.5 million $$$$ Raised awareness world wide and now Clinical trials are in progress .... YOU ARE A PART OF THIS xx Eleanor🌹♥️🌹

I can hardly wait to do this tomorrow! Gorgeous and THANK YOU FOR THE PICTURED INSTRUCTION!!!


Hi, I absolutely adore this pattern! I am hoping to organise some crochet workshops for local crafters, and was wondering if I would be able to teach people how to make these May roses, as part of a seasonal summer workshop? What are your thoughts on this? I look forward to hearing from you :-)


I am having trouble understanding the pattern. Can you make a U.S. pattern?


I have made three of these and they are a little hard because of the UK to US conversions, but they turn out amazing. I put the leaves together, with the side that shows the v like stitches facing out.


I normally make amigurumi animals, and can't do a granny square at all. But these are so fun and easy. I can make one in ten minutes, and they look beautiful. I am making them in varying shades of red and pink, and all have turned out beautifully.


J aimerai les explications e français svp ....
Si quelqu'un pouvait me l'envoyer. [email protected]


Lovely! I've used your pattern to dress up gifts and a purse for a five-year-old. Thank you for sharing!
