I love the look of these “Roll Up roses” (that is what I call them). They can be used for so many things…pins, ornaments, package decoration, brooches, hat adornments, seen together for scarves, collars, necklaces… etcetera! This tutorial on this blog has excellent photos to help you make a roll up rose.
A rose is a rose is a rose. But a crochet rose is much better than a rose!
Why, you ask? Well its oh-so-cute, it blooms all round the year in every color you want and what’s more you made it all by yourself! Here’s how you are going to do it, in 10 easy steps.

Check out this adorable frog baby bib! And it is a free pattern!
So here’s the second bib in a series of 3 boy bibs I’ve designed. A froggy! My son loves this bib because it’s bright and he loves to play with the frogs limbs. I love this bib because it’s big on him so when he inevitably spits up, it doesn’t get on his outfit!

Não faz muito tempo que eu descobri a Burda Magazine. Para quem também não conhece, essa revista é igual a nossa velha e conhecida Manequim, só que muuuito melhor. Ela é originalmente alemã, mas também tem suas traduções para o italiano, frances…
Esse mes eu consegui a Burda alemã, para mim não quer dizer muita coisa, não entendo uma palavra se quer da lingua, mas só de ter essa belezinha na mão….
A modelagem é perfeita, ela é muito mais real que a nossa Manequim, já que a mulher alemã é maior que a brasileira nada é ridíco como aqui. O 38 da revista veste seguramente uma mulher 38, podendo até dar certo para uma 40…
Mas o que mais me chamou a atenção foi que depois que eu ganhei a revista eu acabei descobrindo o site… nele eu consegui encontrar muitas coisas bacanas, mas a melhor dela foi…

Thanks for posting this pattern. I can’t help but think of Irish Crochet lace when I see how the stitches are worked around a cord..very similar to the Irish method.
This basket looks fabulous! I bet that cloth clothesline could be used to make this!
I’ve been looking for a basket of specific dimensions for a while without any luck. Then I saw a circular version of this idea and realised I could make my own!
This uses a technique similar to thrumming, where you crochet over another thread to add bulk to a fabric. If you have ever crocheted over your ends to avoid weaving in, this works the same way.
In this case I used rope instead of another yarn, which is a lot bulkier but great for adding stiffness and making each row deeper. This project had the added bonus of using up a single skein I had left in my stash!
The resulting basket is rectangular with rounded corners.
You will need:
- Length of rope (mine was 38m in length and 6mm diameter, for a 22x42x17cm basket)
- Stash yarn (I used 310m of Patons 100% cotton 4ply in a cream colourway)
- Size 5.00mm…
