Blood And Roses by The Smithereens
Mother’s Day Crochet Rose foundation chain was modified from 65 to 56 for a slightly smaller rose for the scarf; the other modification was the petal shape, which was: one double crochet, one treble crochet, five double crochets.
I modified the sepal pattern to accommodate the small and large buds by changing center to six single crochet for the smaller bud and six half double crochet for the larger bud. I might have also manipulated the sepal leaf instructions.
Created my own pattern for a broader, more realistic rose leaf shape.
Slip stitch second chain from hook, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, half treble crochet, 5 treble crochet, chain 5.
