Super Simple Scrappy Rose

While there's definitely something rewarding about completing a lengthy project, I really do enjoy the satisfaction that I get from the short, sweet and simple things.  I tried a few different rose patterns before I settled on this one, but it works up in about an hour in front of the TV and I've already started thinking of all the places where I could pin one on: gift bags, winter hats, winter jacket lapels, scarves....pillows(?).  Loving it.

The pattern is free on Ravelry, but you'll need a (free) membership to access it.  The yarn is Vanna's Choice in Charcoal.  I think it takes about 1/3 of a ball to make a good-sized rose (about 4" in diameter).  I'm looking forward to trying this with different types of scraps!

  1. This is exactly what I want to learn how to make! I've bought some but now I am thinking I need to go and buy a crochet hook and get cracking.
