Little Crochet Deco Roses

Small Beginner Crochet Deco Roses

A while back I made some little roses and had intended to share the pattern.  It totally slipped my mind until someone requested that I post it.  I bought a pretty bouquet of flowers for myself (that’s right, I don’t wait for someone to buy me flowers – I just buy them up myself 🙂 ) which inspired the color choices for these little buds. I completely cheated on the leaves, and aren’t they fun? They are just made of pom-pom trim that I cut and tied to the back (see assembly pictures below)!

Crochet Deco Roses with Leaves
My daughter always wants to be involved in the picture taking. Here I caught one that didn’t involve her sticking her bare feet all over the flowers. 🙂

These roses are really cute and little as they measure less than 2 inches wide, and 3/4 inches tall.  They are small and fairly flat which make them nice to add to small items. I’m picturing hair pieces, clutches, and pins, but the possibilities are endless. They are made and finished in only two short rows, so they are a breeze to whip up.

You Need:

Size F Crochet Hook

Lily Sugar N Cream (cotton) in various colors (I found these at Jo-Ann Fabric Store) or another worsted weight yarn

Pom-pom trim (optional for the leaves) found at Hobby Lobby

Tapestry Needle



Leaving a 6 inch tail, With your Size F hook, Chain 15


Row 1 In second chain from hook, Single Crochet two times.  Single Crochet two times in each stitch across (28 stitches), Chain 2, Turn


Row 2 Half Double Crochet (HDC) in third stitch from hook, and HDC in each stitch across


Tie off

(**If you want a taller rose, I would Chain 3 rather than 2 at the end of row one, and Double Crochet across row)


Coil your crocheted piece into the shape of a rose

Take your tails and weave in and out, tacking down the flower to hold it together


Leave the tails coming out of the bottom in order to tie the flowers to anything that you would like

For the leaves:

Cut a 5-6 inch piece of pom-pom trim


Tie trim to the back of the rose


Manually curl with fingers (this is naturally curly, so you shouldn’t have to do much of anything to get a slight curl)

    1. Hi,
      I have made roses using a different pattern, they look a little different. I use them as buttons on purses I have made, and decorate childrens hats.

      1. Hi Connie, I really like the idea of putting roses on childrens hats. Purses would look cute with them too! Thanks for the thoughts…maybe my daughter will get a summer hat 🙂

  1. I’m teaching myself to read patterns and this pattern I understand I can’t wait to make it. Thank u soo much.

    1. Thanks for letting me know Jeanette! That makes me so happy….I try to make the directions clear, but always worry about it. Let me know if there’s anything more that I can help with once you get started. 🙂

  2. FANTASTIC, SO MUCH EASIER THAN THE OTHERS, will really b happy to make these it means a lot to have thoughtful people like u.

  3. Would you be able to make these with worsted weight yarn rather than cotton yarn?

    1. Absolutely, Joann! Any worsted weight yarn that you’d like can be used 🙂

      1. Thank you!! I’m going to try these with some acrylic yarn wish me luck 🙂

        1. They will turn out great….you can always use a Size G hook as well. They will turn out a touch bigger, but it will be easier to grab the yarn. I just liked the smaller hook to make them tighter and small 🙂 Have fun! Hope you love them!

  4. I make coils for my cats all of the time, can’t believe I never thought of this. So clever! <3

    1. Ha ha! I know, they are so easy it’s ridiculous Glad you like them….I will have to think of making coils for my Aunt’s beloved cat!

  5. There are many things you could decorate with such cute little flowers. Headbands, totes, crocheted baby shoes or sandals, robes, attach to a ribbon on a gift, put them on hair clips or bobby pins….

    1. Hi Sue! Thanks for the ideas. I especially love the thought to put them on clips or on gifts! I never thought about gifts and I think that would be so special.

  6. I don’t know what I do wrong, but I can never get the rose to coil right, so frustrating to see others who have made this pattern, without any difficulty!

    1. Hi Cathrin – So sorry you’re having difficulty…it happens to the best of us. Let me see if any of these ideas might help. I am sure you already are, but are you using the right yarn and needle size? Then, are you making 2 single crochet stitches into each stitch? This is the important part to make it coil. It should be naturally curling as you crochet. If it isn’t something is being done wrong. Hmmm…I hope this helps!

      1. Thanks for the tip. I finally got my rose to coil. What I did was use a thicker yarn, worsted weight and used a smaller hook to make the sc. Then changed to a larger hook so the stitches were bigger and not tight. The flower was coiling as I made dc. and I just had to sew the petals together. I found if I pulled on the last coil, the flower looked more like a rose. I guess I sort of folded the last part, down so it took on a 3 dimensional look. I hope you can understand what I’m trying to describe to you.


  7. Hi Jessica,these little roses are so delicate and such beautiful colors! I’m going to try to make one. I have trouble understanding patterns! I am new at crochet. I prefer to most always use cotton yarn.I just can’t believe how beautiful these roses are! My husband also likes them!!

    1. Hi Chris! I’m so glad that you like them, and thanks for the sweet compliment! Wow – they must be good if even your husband likes them ;)! I would love to know how they turn out for you when you make them. Let me know if you have any questions.

    1. I’m glad it worked for you! The pattern is really forgiving, so I am glad you like it by chaining 25. Thanks for letting me know!

  8. Going to try and make these soon. Maybe a matching pair in hot pink!? As pigtail accessories? Celebrating that my daughter, 3 years old, finally has enough hair for pigtails!!! Thank you!!

    1. Oh, how I can relate, Amy! My little one still can’t wear real pig tails. Congrats to you on the hair – ha ha! I love your idea of two pink roses!

  9. Thanks for the pattern. 🙂 I love how you make your leaves. I am going to give this a try.

  10. Thank you for sharing your pattern. I made one to put on an infant hat. The only trouble I’m having is the “leaf” trim (I got the one you used from Hobby Lobby) won’t stay curled. Thinking about just gluing it unless you might have a different suggestion?

    1. Hi Nancy,
      You’re welcome! Sorry that it’s not curling right for you. Maybe my trim was extra curly because it’s still curled. My only other thought might be to take the trim, and rather than curling, to fold it in half – under the flower. In this case you could see it peeking out from under the flower ( you could make the piece “leaf” as big as you’d like) Then I would take a sewing needle and thread and sew it down to the flower (probably in the center) Does that make sense? Thanks for sharing in case anyone else has this issue.

  11. I have used the flowers to cover spots and holes in clothes that are too good to throw out.

  12. I love it . jessica your website is beautiful, parts of your model daughter in the pictures it is so cute. what you do is beautiful. I will come back

    1. Thank you dear Nonette. I’m glad you like the pics with my daughter, they happen to by my favorites. 🙂 Thank you so much for your kind words and taking the time to let me know that you like it.

  13. Thank you!! I am attaching these to a sweater that I just made for my 3 year old.

    I will post a pic, when it’s finished.

  14. These little roses are so cute. They will be added to a crochet flower wreath that I am making for a soon-to-be 95 year old friend for on the door of her room at the retirement home she lives in. So many of the ladies that live there have wreaths on their doors and she wanted one also.

  15. Hi Jessica:
    Your crocheted roses would be perfect as decorations for knitted or crocheted “twiddle muffs,” (along with colorful ribbons, lace, beads, etc. ) Great for hospice patients and anyone who suffers from stress, restlessness, Alzheimer’s, and in need of a calming, tactile diversion. There are wonderful examples of finished muffs on the internet, and you can create to the limits of your imagination.

    I hope you will check them out and be inspired by the cause! (Maybe even design one?) Thanks for your great designs!

    1. Hi Penny – what a great idea. I’ve seen those before and sure wish I’d seen them just months ago when my granddad was suffering from Alzheimer’s. We were always looking for things for him to fidget with. Maybe others will see this and be able to use the idea. Thank you!
