Crochet Rose Necklace

A while ago when scrolling through pintrest I saw this georgeous micro-crochet necklace. I didn’t pin it at the time as I was searching for inspiration for an order that had been placed. I have never been able to find that necklace since. I don’t know who made it or what pattern they followed. In this post I have provided a free pattern to make your own crochet rose necklace.

As we are now in a new stage of COVID-19 restrictions I have found my family travel plans cancelled and left with more free time then I would normally have. With this spare time I have been exploring micro-crochet and making crochet boquets. During this I remembered the necklace I had seen and expriemented with embroidery floss to re-create it. I had perviously bought some lovley pearle DMC embroidery floss, themed sunset but the varigrinated look felt more floral to me, and some six stranded embriodery floss in green. I did find working in embroidery floss a challenge if you needed to frog your work as the thread was more likley to split when re-working the section.

What you need:

  • 1x DMC Pearle embroidery floss 4110, or another colour you like for the roses.
  • 2x DMC embroidery floss 367, or any other green you like for the leaves. You may want two different greens for each leaf strand.
  • 2x jewellry jump rings (4mm)
  • 1x lobster clasp (11mm)
  • Jewelry Pliers
  • Embroidery Floss Needle
  • 1mm crochet hook

Rose Strand

The pattern has a large ammount of freedom for your own take on the pattern. My rose strand had 9 rose buds scattered sporatically along a simple chain stitch. The number of chains and rose buds along the strand is up to personal choice but I found that a minimum spacing of 15 chain stitches was needed between each rose bud. I started and ended with 25 chains between the clasps and rose bud

You want your strand to end up the total length you want the necklace to be. I chose 56cms (22″).

Rose Bud

Foundation: from your selected stitch CH12.

R1: Working back along the CH12: 3SC in the second chain from the hook, 3HDC in each of the next two stitches, 3DC in each of the next 3 stitches, 3TR in each of the next 4 stitches, 3DTR in the last stitch of the 12.

Closing: Roll the rose with the SC end of the rose bud at the centre, making sure the chain sections are aligned. Insert the hook through all layers of the rose, yarn over and pull loop through. Repeat this a few times at different angles.

Leaves Strand

Similar to the rose strand the spacing and number of leaves is personal choice. In my version one strand had 6 leaves and the other had 9. It is important to make sure the leaves are in different positions along both strands so that the random feel is maintained. At the end of the strand leave a long end for sewing the jump rings.

R1: Working back along the CH10: SL in the second chain from the hook SL, SC, HDC, DC, 2DC, 2TR, 2DC, HDC, 3HDC in the last stitch, working back along the chain, HDC, 2DC, 2TR, 2DC, DC, HDC, SC, SL, Picot and SL into the starting slip stitch.

One thought on “Crochet Rose Necklace

  1. This is a fantastic design! I love it! Totally ordering my floss today!

    Also, this design gave me a brilliant idea for a similar project only perhaps using that spirally, gauged jewelry wire they use for coil bracelets. And a different viney plant/flower/etc. IF I manage to make it work the way I want it to, can you beta test it and/or allow me to share it on Ravelry for free and credit you as inspiration? I thought I’d ask before I did anything just in case it’s been done and/or you don’t think I should go through with it.

    Thank you for sharing your lovely pattern with us crocheters who love patterns inspired by nature. I added this tutorial to my Ravelry library (I’m Hollyberry31 on Ravelry, just in case you wanted to message me there in reply to my question.)

    Have a great day and keep creating! You are awesome!
