Blood And Roses: Red

Blood And Roses RedThe Name

Blood And Roses by The Smithereens

Hooker Notes

On The Hook: April 17-May 15, 2020
Pattern: Improvised by Hooker Leo from Rosebud and Leaf Pattern by Petals to Picots and Mother’s Day Crochet Rose by Jei Crochet
Hook Size: US G Hook

Flower

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.

Sepals

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.

Leaves

Created my own pattern for a broader, more realistic rose leaf shape.
