Embellish It With Knotted Appliques---The Dog Rose

Best Blog Tips

If you have taken a look at all at Ondori publications you would have noticed that the Japanese enjoy using crochet-on-crochet appliques to enhance and embellish garments, purses, and other crocheted projects. I love roses, and a dog rose would be a perfect applique, so I have come up with this one, which we will embellish with knots at the center to make it even more original.

Materials:Red Heart worsted weight yarn Petal Pink
Red Heart worsted weight yarn Bright Yellow
Blunt needle
Crochet hook size H

With Red Heart worsted weight yarn Petal Pink, ch 12. Sl st to join chain.
Rnd 1- 1 sc in first ch, 2 sc in next ch, *1 sc in next ch, 2 sc in next ch, rep from * around. Sl st to join rnd.
Rnd 2- Ch 4, 1 dc in same spot, *skip 1 sc, 1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc in next sc, rep from * around. Sl st to join rnd. (V-stitch round)
Rnd 3- Ch 2 (stands for 1 hdc), 4 dc, 1 hdc, in center of first V-stitch, skip next ch, *1 hdc, 4 dc, 1 hdc in center of the next V-stitch, rep from * around, sl st at the base of first ch-2 of round to join. Fasten off.

Repeat for as many dog roses as you want to add to your project.

Thread a needle with Petal Pink yarn and sew the dog roses to your project. Fastn off.

Center Knots- With Bright Yellow and blunt needle, make French or Colonial knots to fill the center of the dog rose. Fasten off.
