Here you'll find a large selection of free crochet rose patterns. The patterns are not only pretty, but a popular item to crochet. They were popular even in old crochet pattern books from the 1800's. You'll find many free patterns for crochet roses on this page.

My daughter-in-law found a hat with a rose on the side that she wanted for Christmas. The price was high, so she asked me to crochet one for her. At the time, the hat looked simple. It was just a simple mesh pattern that was easy enough and had a rose on the side.

Years ago, I crocheted lots of roses, but had forgotten the technique. I searched and searched for free rose patterns and just couldn't find one that was just right. I'm hoping to help someone in the same predicament. I think you'll find just what you need from the patterns offered here.

Rose for Appliques and Corsages, Brooches and Pins

The roses here would work well to add an extra touch to a garment, like the hat I crocheted. Add a pin to the back of one for a corsage. You could even add a few to the corners of a baby blanket.

The free Blooming Rose Pattern is offered by Be a Crafter Xd Blog. This pretty rose features leaves, but no stems.

The pattern for Precious Rose With Leaves is free at CrochetDoilies.com. The designer says that she uses this rose for many of her doily patterns. Crochet thread was used to crochet this delicate rose.

Irish roses are smaller than regular roses. About.com offers a Two-Layer Irish Rose pattern. You can use any size yarn or thread to crochet this project. Size will be determined by what type you use and what hook you use.


Roses With Stems

These roses can be used with or without stems. With the stems and some tissue paper wrapped around them, they'd make a nice surprise for Mother's Day or a special occasion for anyone. Crochet a dozen and place them in a vase for your own home.

Without the stems, the roses can be used as appliques and corsages just like the patterns above. Sew one on a hat or crochet tiny ones with crochet cotton for dresses. Embroidery floss works well for appliques too. Don't forget baby dresses that need an extra touch.

Planet June offers a Basic Rose Pattern. The tutorial includes attaching a stem to the rose. The stem is optional if you'd like to use the rose for a hat like I did or a corsage. Photos guide you each step of the way to make this an easier project.

The Pink Rose Bouquet will show you how to make an entire dozen roses. The roses would make a nice gift or you could use them as a centerpiece on your table. Lily Sugar 'n Cream Yarn was used in the pattern provided. Any worsted weight yarn should work well. These could be used individually without the stems, if that is what you need. Favecrafts offers this free pattern.

This pattern is easy to follow because it breaks down the pattern into steps. The pattern Roses in 9 Steps are really 10 steps with a photo included for each one. it makes this tutorial easy to follow. These are extra nice.

This vintage pattern for a Rose Filet Runner is offered by Mom's Love of Crochet. The finished runner would work well on a sofa table, because the finished size is 15 inches by 50 inches. It would also work for a long dresser or dining table if you want a narrow runner.

Mom's Love of Crochet also offers a free Filet Rose Tablecloth pattern. The finished tablecloth is a square that is 52 inches in length and width. She includes a graph that is easy to read with the pattern.

Projects with Roses

Rose can be used as a design or embellishment for almost any project. Below are several projects that include them in the design. Use your imagination and you'll think of many others.

A free pattern is offered at Ravelry for the Irish Rose Doily. This is a vintage pattern that is archived. It offers several choices of crochet thread to choose from.

My Crazy Life Blog offers this free pattern for Rose Earrings. This is a quick and easy project if you don't have a lot of time. The project is a good way to use up all those small bits of leftover size 10 crochet thread too. She used a size 7 crochet steel hook. The pattern can be completed so quickly that you could crochet these in an assortment of colors.

The Rose Pinwheel Potholder is another vintage pattern offered by The Free Vintage Crochet Site. The pattern is crocheted with Lily Crochet Cotton. This potholder would make a nice decorative touch to your kitchen. I don't think it would be thick enough to actually lift pans with it, unless you added a liner.

You'll find this pretty pattern for a crochet Rose Rug right here at Hubpages. It is crocheted in the round and has a beautiful rose in the center. It is just beautiful.

I've been thinking of picking up crocheting again and will pin your hub for the near future. I love that Irish rose doily, and am anxious to try making the crocheted roses.

Voting up +++, sharing and pinning.

billybuc, When I saw your name, I knew it was one you couldn't use. Thanks for stopping by and you have a nice weekend too. We are supposed to have rain and cold temperatures. All the way down to the 30's Sunday night. I hope it is going to be better for you.

These are beautiful! Thank you for showcasing a craft that does not seem to get the attention it used to.

Carly, Thanks for viewing. There are still a lot of crocheters out there, but it does seem more popular with those 50 and older. Some of the crochet groups at Yahoo have over 4000 members, so it hasn't died yet.

Barbara, once upon a time when my fly tying friends showed me their materials, supplies, and finished flies, I thought, "I could never do that!" Within a couple of years, I was tying tens of thousands of flies. Similar thought patterns occur to me as I read your Hub, but this time I'm hardly a naysayer and leaning heavily towards a true believer. We just never know...Thanks for sharing this awesome Hub! Aloha, my friend!

hawaiianodysseus, Tying flies isn't too different from crochet. It is just a bunch of loops tied together to form a project. You can do it if you try. Thanks for reading and commenting.

I like the placemat, that is crocheted? I saw on your bio that you have made your own patterns, have you written about any of those here? I made a pattern years ago to go with a set I found elsewhere. It was missing a hat for a newborn, which I figured out how to do.

That was before the days of computers, so I probably have it filed in a metal file cabinet somewhere.

I voted this up and pinned it.

Barbara Kay, thank you for sharing your hub about crochet. It is interesting and useful.

Barbara Kay 3 years ago from USA Author

Marsha, No, none of these are my own designs. I put most of my own on my website. I have been thinking about a little more complicated designs and submitting them to magazines again. It would be more profitable for me.

I haven't done a lot of crocheting lately since I've been busy with the summer hustle and bustle and my gardens. I'll need to get busy again. Thanks for commenting.
