How beautiful are roses? I never have been able to say why, what it is, what makes them the most beautiful flowers around. But I really love them.
Making them is a completely different story! It was my idea to make another flower scarf, but this time only with flowers looking like roses and rose buds. So I tried the patterns in the books of Lesley Stanfield, but somehow they didn’t work this time. Whether it was the yarn I’m using, or just me; I guess that’s not too important. I had to make something up for myself.
Four different rosebuds, some crocheted, some knitted, some using both techniques. But none of them is exactly what I wanted. So I tried some more and came up with a final pattern, where I crochet the whole rosebud, and only the stem is knitted.
This way, it really is a little bud, still partially embedded in the green leaves.
