We are more than halfway through the Mystery Crochet-a-Long and I’ll be sad to see it come to an end.
Today is my favorite day yet, though – so get ready for some fun embellishing!
We are adding a simple applique today, so it’ll be fun, quick, and pretty. My favorite kind of project.
Can’t wait to wrap up the CAL tomorrow!
-Any Color worsted weight yarn (I’m using Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Pink)
-H 5mm crochet hook
With same color yarn as used on Day 1 (or center color) Ch 16, 2 Sc 2nd st from hook and in each across, Ch 1, turn (30)
Row 2: Sc, 2 Sc in next, repeat across, Sc in last, Ch 1, turn (40)
Row 3: *Sl into 1st st, Dc, Dc, sl st in next, repeat from * across, finish off leaving a long tail for sewing (~ 12 in.).
-Curl the strand of crochet up onto itself, starting with the side opposite your finish off tail.
-With a tapestry needle, sew the long tail back and forth over the back of the rose to secure, making sure to sew through the layers of the “petals”
-Make 10 Roses
-Sew each rose onto the center of each triangle shape. Weave ends.
See you tomorrow!
