This crochet Irish Rose is a popular motif used in Irish Lace crochet. You can use this Irish rose as an applique for various embellishments, you can use it for scrapbooking or card making.
You can also use crochet Irish rose to make unique jewelry. I’ve used such rose to embellish this crochet chain scarf and to make a beautiful card for Mother’s Day.

Using first color, Ch 5, join with Sl St to form a ring.
Rnd 1. Ch 5 (count 3 Chs as first DC + 2 Chs), *DC into the ring, Ch 2* – repeat 7 times, join with Sl St into 3rd Ch of the Ch 5 an the beginning of the Rnd. You should have 8 Ch-2 arches.
Rnd 2. Ch 1, *work (HDC, 3 DC, HDC) – into arch, Sl St into top of DC*- repeat 8 times. Sl St into Ch 1 in the beginning. Side facing you is Right Side. Cut off first color. Fasten off.
Rnd 3. Turn your flower with Wrong Side facing you. Make a Slip Knot on hook with second color, insert hook under any DC post of the first Rnd and make Sl St. Ch 6 (first DC and Ch 3), *DC around next DC post, Ch 3* – repeat to the end of the Rnd, join with Sl St into 3rd Ch of Ch 6 in the beginning.
Rnd 4. Turn your flower with Right Side facing you. Ch 1, *work (HDC, 5 DC, HDC) – into arch, Sl St into top of DC*- repeat 8 times, Sl St into Ch 1 in the beginning. Cut off second color. Fasten off.

Rnd 6. Turn your flower with Right Side facing you. Ch 1, *work (HDC, 7 DC, HDC) – into arch, Sl St into top of DC*- repeat 8 times, Sl St into Ch 1 in the beginning.
You can stop here. If you want to make decorative edging, continue to work on the 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 a decorative edge makes the last Rnd of petals wavy.
