Skills

This project is suitable for the advanced beginner. It is required to have some idea of how crochet work shapes up. The pattern as such is not complicated. 

Stitches used for this project:

  • Chain stitches;
  • Slip stitches;
  • Double crochet (US: single crochet);
  • Half treble (US: half double crochet);
  • Treble (US: double crochet);
  • Double treble (US: triple crochet).

 

Required materials:

 

Size:

As big as you please. I made two necklaces of approx. 300 cm each and I wrapped them three times around the neck. I had plenty of yarn left to make the necklace longer or to add more leaves and roses. 

 

About this project

Flora is a fun project which hooks up quite quickly. It is very suitable to adapt to your own ideas. You can wear Flora as a necklace, but it's also great for home decor: as a garland around the banisters, draped around a vase of tulips or arranged loosely in a bowl on the table. Or make it into a wreath.

If you the leaves better than the roses, or vice versa, crochet those only. In one colour or more colours, the choice is yours.

Work as few or as many of the leaves and roses into the chain as you please. Vary large and small leaves and roses, or make them all the same size. Group them in threes and fours, or march them regularly across the chain.

Make them in natural colours, or let your creativity go wild. Make the leaves in Seashell and the roses in Coco. That works, too. Or make them in black & white. Or go for intense colours, like Ruby Pink and Paris. Or go for subtlety, for example with Sunglow and Bessie.

Or make it more exuberant with the leaves in two shades of green and the roses in two other colours, like Orchid and Bordeaux.

Or...

Well, you get the idea. This pattern is only a guide, a basis on which you can build yourself. It's up to you!

 

Crochet Rose pattern

Please note! I use the English terms when naming the stitches. For the US synonyms, refer to the terms mentioned at the top of this page.

You make the necklace by literally crocheting a chain of chain stitches. The roses are crocheted onto this chain. So you don't have to make the roses one by one and attach them later. (You can do that, of course, if you prefer this. It's a nice way to use up bits of yarn. Or to add to your necklace over the years.) 

You can make the roses in various sizes: a small rose or bud, a medium and a large rose. Again, it's up to you how large "large" will be exactly. 

Vary these different roses to your own design and make the necklace as long or as short as you please. 

Start with a base chain of at least 15 cm. 

Start of each rose: treble 1 into the 4th chain from the hook. Chain 2. Treble 2 into the same chain (the 4th from the hook). 

Repeat pattern row 1: Skip 2 chains in the base chain, treble 2, chain 2, treble 2 into same chain, chain 1. 

Repeat pattern row 2: treble 6 into the space underneath the 2 chains, double crochet 1 into the single chain space. 

Roll-up tip: roll towards the chain. So the loose end ends up on the inside of the rose. You can secure this with one or two slip stitches on the bottom. 

Crocheting the bud/small rose:

Treble 1 into the 4th chain from the hook. Chain 2. Treble 2 into the same chain (the 4th from the hook).

Next, crochet 3 to 5 times the repeat pattern row 1.

Roll up and secure with one or two slip stitches. Secure the bottom too with one or two slip stitches and continue from the bottom with the chain.

Crocheting the medium and large rose:

Treble 1 into the 4th chain from the hook. Chain 2. Treble 2 into the same chain (the 4th from the hook).

Next, crochet 5 to 10 times the repeat pattern row 1.

Turn and continue with repeat pattern row 2: treble 6 into the space underneath the 2 chains, then double crochet 1 into the single chain space. 

Roll up and secure with two or three slip stitches. Secure the bottom too with one or two (or three or however many you need) slip stitches and continue from the bottom with the chain.

 

Crochet leaves pattern

Please note! I use the English terms when naming the stitches. For the US synonyms, refer to the terms mentioned at the top of this page.

You make this necklace by literally crocheting a chain of chain stitches. The leaves are crocheted onto this chain as you go. So you don't have to make the leaves one by one and attach them later. (You can do that, of course, if you prefer this. It's a nice way to use up leftover bits of yarn. Or to add to your necklace over the years.) 

There are 4 sizes of leaves. If you understand the essence of the pattern (you make a fat bottom and pointy end, basically), you could make even bigger leaves. 

I thought it very pretty to every so often make a twig right next to a small or medium leaf.

Vary these leaves to your own design and make the necklace as long or as short as you please. 

Twig/bud: work 4 to 8 slip stitches back along the chain. Continue with the chain. 

Small leaf: work 5 slip stitches back along the chain. 

Turn and work: 1 half treble, 2 half trebles, 1 double crochet, 1 double crochet.

At the top: 1 slip stitch, 2 chains, 1 slip stitch into same stitch. 

Continue on the bottom: 1 double crochet, 1 double crochet, 2 half trebles, 1 half treble. 

Slip stitch at the start/base of the leaf. Continue with the chain. 

Medium leaf: work 8 slip stitches back along the chain. 

Turn and work: 1 half treble, 2 trebles, 2 trebles, 1 half treble, 1 double crochet, 1 double crochet. 

Top: 1 slip stitch, 2 chains, 1 slip stitch into same stitch. 

Continue on the bottom: 1 double crochet, 1 double crochet, 1 half treble, 2 trebles, 2 trebles, 1 half treble.

Slip stitch into the start/base of the leaf. Continue with the chain. 

Large leaf: work 8 slip stitches back along the chain. 

Turn and work: 1 half treble, 1 treble, 2 double trebles, 2 double trebles, 1 double treble, 1 treble, 1 treble, 1 half treble, 1 double crochet, 1 double crochet.

Top: 1 slip stitch, 2 chains, 1 slip stitch into same stitch.

Continue on the bottom: 1 double crochet, 1 double crochet, 1 half treble, 1 treble, 1 treble, 1 double treble, 2 double trebles, 2 double trebles, 1 treble, 1 half treble.

Slip stitch into the start/base of the leaf. Continue with the chain. 

 

Finishing

It depends a bit on how you're shaping your project, but you probably won't have to do a lot of finishing. There are hardly any loose ends.

If you're making a necklace, arrange the whole onto the back of a chair or a helpful volunteer. This way you can arrange where you want your leaves and roses.

I took the leaves necklace first and wrapped it three times around, making the first wrap larger than the other two. Then I twined the rose necklace around it, not tight at all, just a few weaves so that the three wraps will stay in their ranks a bit.

At the top (the neck) I fastened the chains together with a few slip stitches.
