Here’s the best Crochet Irish Rose pattern I’ve found! I assure you it is accurately and clearly written.
The pattern, found on Roland-Designs.com, is written for about 4 rows of petals, but I expanded it and crocheted 11 rows using Aunt Lydia’s Classic Crochet Thread #10.
I came across this tie stick pin in my husband’s jewelry box and thought it a perfect accent.
I stuffed the back side of the rose with white cotton batting, tucking the edges under to make a smooth surface. I crocheted a ‘cover’ to give the piece a ‘finished’ look and attached it by sewing up and down through the rows of petals. I added a broach pin and my label.
Now, I’m ready to pin this beauty to my hat and wear with happiness well beyond St. Pat’s!
