Crochet Irish Rose – Step by Step Instructions

Crochet Irish Rose - Step by Step Instructions

This crochet Irish Rose is a popular motif used in Irish Lace. It can be used for so many different projects. You can use it as an appliqué and embellish anything you would like, you can use it for scrapbooking or card making or you can make jewelry with these flowers! I’ve used such Irish Rose to embellish my Chain Scarf.

I’ve made my crochet Irish Rose in two colors. You can make it in one color or you can make every layer a different color.

You can stop here, but if you want to make decorative edging, continue to work on next Rnd.

Rnd 7. Decorative edging – *Ch 1, Sl St into the top of next St* – repeat to the end of the Rnd.

Fasten off and weave in the ends.

You will need to block your Rose as decorative edge makes the last Rnd of petals wavy.
