This crochet rose pattern was named for my mother. Her name was Rosa and she had a great passion for flowers, roses in particular. In designing this crochet rose pattern, I wanted something with a flat back in order to attach a pin or barrette to the back easily. I also dislike crocheting roses in the strip method. Rolling it up and sewing it together is just not for me. You first make a circle working in rounds without joining to create a spiral, then work around the spiral to form the rose. This creates the nice flat back for attaching a pin or barrette, but also for attaching to other crochet work. There is also a nice round of unworked loops left on the last round for neatly sewing without having the stitches show.
