I am very confused by the leaves. Is a tr a double crochet and a htr a half double crochet? When you say 2tr, is that 2 dc in the same stitch? Is the pattern actually:


Chain 8.
Start in 2nd chain from hook and work the following :

dc, hdc, 4dc, hdc, dc.

Chain 2, sl st in 2nd chain from hook (picot point made).

Now work back along the bottom of the foundation chain, in the single loops of the chain :

dc, hdc, 4dc, hdc, dc.

Sl st into end of leaf and fasten off leaving a tail end long enough to darn in.
and why doesn't my point look like yours?

Thank you so much for making it so easy. I have just made them to finish off a baby blanket, they look beautiful x x


Once again, I owe you my thanks.
I used this, and your other flower and leaf tutorials, to make a woolly bouquet as a wedding gift for my sister. https://sultanabun.wordpress.com/2016/01/20/small-conversations/
You are a gifted teacher.


Brilliant thank you so much, hopefully mine will look as good as yours after a few more attempts!! Nice simple and clear instructions. Am attempting a wreath using a few of your ideas.
Keep posting!


Hi there, this is the best explanation I have seen! I made my first rose, many will follow☺️

Thank you for sharing so much wonderful inspiration. You are a generous wonder.


Thank you so much for all your patterns. You explain everything perfectly.
I''m a little confused with the May Rose, are those directions in UK version and then I would convert them into U.S. or should I crochet with the stitches that are written? I'm sorry I hope I haven't confused you! Thank You So Much. Debbie😊


Amazing instructions....you have to be a teacher!

Your May Roses are wonderful. They inspired me to make a bouquet of them for my friend's wedding using your lovely pattern. If you would like to have a look at them, my blog address is http://creative-faye.blogspot.co.uk/

I'm such a fan. Thanks for sharing.


Hi, It is my first time, beautiful and clear pattern. Thank you so much

Your may roses are so beautiful! Thank you so much for te pattern n_n <3


Hello, I just wanted to say thank you for this sweet rose pattern. Just what I needed to finish off the shawl I made for my daughter. Anna


So glad you have shown clearly how to make the leaves... As a very new crocheter I do struggle with patterns either saying the stitch or giving a symbol. Your clear pictures are great! Please continue

Great pattern we are putting them on chemo caps


You've made this look so easy that even I could do it. I've book-marked your site and will be back often ... I'm taking a crochet class in June and just have to try these flowers afterwards.


Hi Lucy,
I'm a big fan of your blog and as I have made a crochet rose roundup on my blog I have included your rose pattern on the list. Thanks for sharing your patterns for free.
