Crochet Rose Spike Petals and One Piece Triple Leaf



My Rose Spike Petal Pattern
I made many free and pay for, rose patterns and I was not happy with the way they worked up. Inspired by some and styling them the way I was eventually happy with, I came up with a pattern for a rose which I liked.
There is no tricky assembly and the flower rolls up into a rose, not like something that resembles a rose.
I know roses come in many shapes and colors, but this is the rose I was aiming for. Cupped and spiked petals, I also came up with a 3 petal calyx that is made in one piece. The two parts come together very nicely.
Materials:
Hook to suit yarn ply, small amount of yarn
Sewing needle
Wire for stem, if needed.
US terms used:
Sc-single crochet
Dc-double crochet
Trbl-triple crochet
Picot- see instructions
The picot is made on the top of the trbl in row 4.
Once the trbl is made, ch 2
 Then sl st into the front loop of the top of the trbl and also the side top loop of the trbl, picot made.
I used 8 ply yarn and a 4 mm hook (AU sizes)
Small flower 12 petals:  
(please note this flower can be made bigger, use any amount of odd numbered sc's to get a bigger flower)
Leave a long tail on row 1 (14 inches approx)
Row 1, make a 25 sc foundation row, ch 4, turn
(if you are not familiar with the scf row, make a row of 25 sc's)
 



Row 2, work 1 dc in the 3rd sc space, *ch 2, skip 1 sc, work 1 dc in the next sc,* repeat from *to* to end (12 spaces made), ch 3 and turn
Row 3, work 1 dc, ch 3, 2 dc in the first space, make 1 sc in the dc of the row below, * work 2 dc, ch 3, 2 dc in the next space, work 1 sc in the dc of the row below* repeat from *to* to end, omitting the last sc into a dc at the very end, ch 3 and turn

 (picture, row 2 and part of row 3)

Row 4, work 2 dc into the ch 3 space, work 1 trbl into the ch 3 space, make a picot on top of the trbl just made, work 3 more dc’s into the same ch 3 space, 
work 1 sc into the sc space of the row below,
* into the next ch 3 space of the row, (work 3 dc’s, 1 trbl, make a picot on top of the trbl just made, work 3 more dc’s), 
work 1 sc into the sc space of the row below,* repeat from *to* ending with a sl st to the top of the ch 3, break off yarn leaving a 6 inch tail (12 petals made)

(row 3 and beginning of row 4)
(finished row 4)
Assembly:
Beginning where you just left off, fold the last petal onto the petal bedside it, connect petals through the sc space and sew down toward the base (inner bud), finish off that yarn, attach sewing needle to long thread and sew as you roll the rose closed, 

sew down the side of that last petal, tie off loose ends, pull picots into shape, finished.
 
One Piece Triple Leaf
I wanted a thicker leaf vein and a faster way to make 3 leaves, so I came up with this idea



Materials:
Hook to suit yarn ply, small amount of yarn
Sewing needle
Wire for stem, if needed.
US terms used:
Sc-single crochet
Hdc- half double crochet
Dc-double crochet

Ch 6, sl st to form a circle
Row 1, ch 11, work 1 sc in second ch from hook, work 1 sc in next 9 ch’s, sl st into circle (10 sc’s)

Row 2 and row 3, repeat row 1

Row 4, sl st into the chain space (bottom of the leaf spine), ch 3, skip 2 chain spaces, work 3 dc’s into the next ch space, work 1 dc into each of the next 3 ch spaces, work 1 hdc into the next ch space, work 1 sc into the next ch space, sl st and ch 2 into the last ch space, now working on the other side of the leaf spine, sl st into the next sc, 1 sc into the next sc, 1 hdc into the next sc, 1 dc into the next 3 sc’s, 3 dc’s into the next sc, ch 3 and sl st into the last sc space of the leaf spine, sl st into the ring


Repeat row 4 instructions for the next 2 leaves, leaving a long tail for sewing onto the flower
You can also make 4 or more leaves this way.
