Project #10. "Rose Bud"




Thread used: Presencia FInca Perle #8, color #1975 and #8310;
Crochet hook 0.75mm (but for some of you it will be easier to use hook #0.9mm).

I managed to crochet this rose bud with hook #0.6mm.
You can also use thread #12. Presencia company has the same colors in #12.

The size of this rose bud is 3/4 inches (a little less then 2cm).

Project #11. "Antique Rose"






The rose in this tutorial was inspired from the antique dress. In the dress the rose is not a crochet motif, but embroidered motif, which is unusual to Irish Crochet lace. 

In this tutorial I propose you to discover how with crochet technique you can recreate motif that was embroidered. 

You need to know how to crochet clones Knot stitch, and how to crochet over the PC (packing cord).  Please follow the written instructions.
