I mentioned before that although I love making Irish Roses and they feature not only on many of my handmade items but also in my shop banner & on my avatar I have never got round to actually creating a pattern for it.
Well I have now. After getting an email asking if I had a pattern for sale I thought I really need to write this down.
When I make them, no two are the same. I usually have another idea of making frilly edges or adding beading. Even the number and densitiy of the petals can change.
I love to mix colours, use multi-coloured yarns or even use different yarn weights & textures when making them. I think, like in nature, my roses should be individual.
Have a look in Walnut Baby to see some of my little rosy creations and the pattern is there for you too
I love the rose I created for this pattern
I made it using DMC multi-coloured embroidery thread. The silkiness of the thread gives this particular rose a lovely sheen and the feel is so soft.
