The following information applies to the website version of the pattern, which is adapted from the the version in Leisure Arts Crochet Lites #83049, Baby’s Bible.

“Roses are big this year as fashion accents, and our crocheted design lets you make them any size you want. Your choice of yarn weight is what determines the finished size. Designer Terry Kimbrough originally made her rose in delicate Size 30 cotton crochet thread, but we started with a giant version made of bulky weight Lion® Suede yarn. To get other sizes, we experimented with worsted weight and sport yarns and also adapted the pattern to have fewer petals. Have fun!”

Materials: Yarn or crochet cotton thread of your choice color and weight; appropriate-size crochet hook (see yarn label for suggested size); yarn needle.

“For our Large Roses, we used Lion Brand® Lion® Suede bulky weight yarn in Rose with a J (6 mm) hook; Caron® Simply Soft® medium/worsted weight yarn in Rubine Red with an H (5 mm) hook; and Red Heart® LusterSheen fine yarn in Dark Mulberry with an F (3.75 mm) hook. For the Medium Rose,
we used TLC® Cotton Plus medium/worsted weight yarn in Hot Pink with an H (5 mm) hook.”

Finished Size: Size will be determined by type of yarn or thread used. Gauge is not important for this project.
