"A Different Rose" FREE Crochet Doily Pattern
A Pretty Little 3D Accent Doily or Cover For Glass Candle Lid
Here is a little doily to pass a pleasant weekend crocheting! It features rosebuds done "differently," hence the name.
When you are doing "3D" crochet, the directions can be just a bit unconventional at times. For example you may be directed to flip a petal toward you and work on the back side for a minute. SO if you get to a place and the directions sound a little odd, that would be one of those unconventional parts! This is why I am putting an Intermediate/ Advanced/ Challenging label on this pattern.
I can really see this tucked into a gift basket, or used as a package topper because of its small size. It will only come out about 9-10" in diameter, depending on thread and hook used.
Really hope you enjoy this design!

What You Will Need
A Bunch Of Pretty Scrap Thread Would Work Great!
- You will need two different greens, two different pinks (or desired rosebud colors), one metallic accent thread, and one main doily color for outer border. OH - and one large crystal or other bead, about 20 mm size.
Remember to keep your thread thickness/size consistent. For example, use all size 10 threads or all size 20 but don't mix them.
- Steel crochet hook in size 8 or your preferred size.
Get The Hooks I Use! - You Will LOVE Them!
Simply the best crochet hooks I have ever used. Durable, strong, smooth, and fast. And the innovative ergonomic handle allows me to keep working with thread despite severe arthritis. It helps prevent hand fatigue, too!
Abbreviations/Special Stitches Used
CH - Chain
Sl St - slip stitch
SC - Single Crochet
DC - Double Crochet
TRC - Treble Crochet
TRC Cluster - TRC in first stitch, holding last loop on hook. TRC in next directed number of stitches, holding back the last loop on each stitch. When you have completed the directed number, thread over and pull through all loops on hook. CH 1 to fasten
5DCP - 5 DC Popcorn - Work 5 DC in directed stitch. After completing them, take hook out of loop. Insert hook in top of first DC in the group of five, reach around from behind your work and insert hook thru the drooped loop. Pull that loop through the other loop on your hook. Ch 1 to secure popcorn.
Let's Get Started!
I really hope you enjoy making this doily with me. You could choose to add a lot of color by making each rosebud in a different color (Great way to use up scrap thread!) Or you could go elegant by making the entire doily in white or ecru - the choice is yours! You will need one good sized crystal bead for the center (or you can leave it out).
As with all my doilies I don't care too much about gauge. I can tell you all my thread in this one will be #10 and I am using a Clover hook that the size isn't marked on anymore - I believe it's about a U.S. size 8.
Thanks and happy crocheting! Don't forget to take pics of your work and share link to your pics on the Plexo section here, so we all can see!

Another Idea For This Pattern!
Just occurred to me, this would make the cutest round pillow cover, made in yarn! Hmmm.... I may have to try that! And why don't you, too!
