To assemble

ROSE BUD

  1. Pick up one of the smallest petals, wrap into two as shown below.
  1. Add a little glue/gum to the middle of the second small petal, and wrap it around the petal on the wire making sure at each point to cover the opening of the previous petal and both positioned at the same height.

If you desire to skip the glue, you can sew the distal sts together.

  1. Repeat step 2 for the 3rd petal, and for the other petals.

Set aside.

Small size rose – 3 small petals and 3 medium-sized petals 

Medium size rose – 3 small petals and 3 medium-sized petals 

Large size rose – 3 small petals and 3 medium-sized petals, 3 Large-sized petals.

Repeat * 3 more times

Fasten off.

Stalk and leaves – continue with the same hook and yarn

Row 1: Attach yarn with a slip stitch to the base of the sepal, where you chained 8 – make 20 FSC do not fasten off.

Note that the length of your FSC would be dependent on how long you want the stalk to be!!

Assembling the parts together

Attaching a firm stalk to your rose

  • Prototype was made using a combination of 4 pieces of 25g Hobby Green wire (25 cm x 0,71mm) and was secured with Bind wire, wrapped around the green wire multiple times. 

Pass the stalk through the middle of the petal. 

Attaching a firm stalk to your rose

  1. Pick up the assembled petals and the sepal
  2. If using glue, apply a generous amount of glue around the base of the petals and place the petals firmly into the bud.
  3. If omitting the glue, place the petal inside the bud and stitch together severally. 
  4. The stalk (made with (FSC) can be used to either join the roses together. Or for the roses with wire stalks, you could wrap the yarn multiple times around the wire. Secure firmly.
