Rose Diamond Free Crochet Pattern

This pretty diamond can be used as part of any larger project, or as a complete item on it's own - I've used mine as a standalone Floral Wall decoration because it's just ideal for decorating hallways or feature walls.


This design could also be incorporated into a diamond repeat joined with ‘bridging’ trebles or double crochet to make a long strip of diamonds for a longer wall hanging - it's entirely up to you!


And don't worry - if you prefer to work from a chart, I've included a handy diagram for you to follow, just scroll right through to the end of this post and enjoy!



Here's what you'll need to get started...


[UK Terminology used]


Hook:

Hook: 3.5mm


Yarn:

I used the lovely Stylecraft Batik DK range - you can pick any DK contrasting yarn that you like but the colours I chose are here:


Stylecraft Batik DK - Raspberry (1905) - 50g

Stylecraft Batik DK - Teal (1909) - 50g

Stylecraft Special DK - White (1001) - 100g


Tension:

in tr: 22 sts x 11 rows for 10cm x 10cm [4” x4”]


Stitches and abbreviations:


ch chain

dc double crochet

dc2tog – double crochet across next 2 sts

htr half treble

sl st slip stitch

st(s) stitch(es)

tr treble

tr2tog – treble crochet across next 2 sts


You'll also need to use a couple of special stitches to create your rose and leaves - when you see 'flower stitch' or 'leaf stitch' in the written pattern, refer back to this 'special stitch guidance':


Special Stitches:


Leaf Stitch (see leaf stitch diagram):

Starting with the left side leaf:

Row 1 Ch4, dc into indicated stich 3 rows down.

Row 2 Around ch4 of row 1, dc, htr, 2tr, htr, dc.

Repeat rows 1 and 2 for right side leaf.





Flower Stitch (see flower stitch diagram):

Row 1 Ch9

Row 2 3tr in 4th ch from hook, 3tr in next 4 ch, ch3, ss into last ch.

Twist flower strip into coil, insert hook through all layers of coil, yrh, pull through flower and loop on hook (ss) to hold flower together.
