tea rose for pony
Tea roses don’t look quite like that, I realize. It’s more like those wild roses (we used to have them in our front yard), but “tea rose for pony” sounds nice. And reminds me of a book I read in high school called Flowers for Algernon.
The hair ties I buy at the drug store get worn out quickly, so I wanted to make the flower detachable. When the hair elastic is worn out, one could attach the flower to a new hair elastic.
I’m sure there are tons of patterns for crocheting roses, but I’ve never made one before and wanted to figure out how to make the petals overlap. So I thought I’d write it all down :)
A larger tea rose can be made with regular yarn rather than crochet thread. I made a yellow one with a light worsted weight yarn and a 3.5mm crochet hook, for a headband.
