How do you crochet a rose step by step?
You can crochet a rose in many different ways. The simplest way is to make a circle of chains and then crochet a row of single crochets along the edge of the circle. Then you work another row of single crochets into the first row, making sure that you are working around the center chain ring as you go. Repeat this second row until there is only one loop left on your hook, and then add a final round of stitches to complete the rose.
You can also crochet roses by working in rows from the bottom up, or from the top down. In this case, you would begin with just one stitch in each stitch across the base of your rose, and work more stitches into each stitch as you go along. This is how I made my large rose for my wedding bouquet (see picture above).

How do you crochet an Irish Rose?
An Irish Rose is a double crochet with two stitches in the first stitch and one in each of the next two. It’s easier than it sounds, I promise! Here’s how to do it:
1. Start by making a chain of any number that’s divisible by three.
2. Make a single crochet into the fourth chain from your hook. (This will be the center chain.) Then make two double crochets into each of the next two chains. You should now have four stitches total, including the center single crochet.
3. Slip stitch into the center single crochet to join them together, then slip stitch again into that same space to complete your first round of petals!
4. To begin round 2, yarn over and insert your hook under both loops of each stitch from round 1, just like you would for a normal double crochet stitch. Then yarn over again and pull through all three loops on your hook to finish off this petal! You should now have five stitches total for this round (including the center single crochet).
