Here are some notes from testers -
Lisa writes - I did your large rose with a 5-ply bulky weight yarn (Premier yarns serenity chunky weight) and a J-hook (6.00mm), used 125 feet and I love it.

LaVonne says - For the large rose I used RH red with a G hook and it took 1/2 once to make. This is going to be a good decorative pattern for bags and hats 
Marci from Crochetville says - I used an f hook and baby weight yarn approx 12 yards.
A wonderful friend has taken her own progress photo's. See here for more details

Sl st – slip stitch
Ch - chain
sc - single crochet
dc – double crochet
FO – finish off
1)      sc into the 2nd ch from the hook, 1 sc into every st across, turn

2)      *ch 3, skip 2 st, sc into the next st*, repeat from * to * - when you get to the end if you don’t have the correct amount of stitches left sc into the last stitch J turn
3)      Ch 3, work 3 dc into the ch 3 space, ch3, sl st into the same ch 3 space that you just worked the 3 dc into. Slip stitch into the next ch 3 space, ch 3, 3 dc into the chain 3 space, ch 3, slip st into same ch 3 space

I used very little yarn. Red Heart white size 4.
A size 3.75 / E hook.
I made a small rose about 3 inches across.
The pattern is very easy to follow and I enjoyed making and because it was so easy I will end up using again. It will look great on headbands, hats, scarfs and even some purses. Thank you for taking the time to make such a great tutorial.

I made a small rose with red heart yarn and a sz H hook. easy to read instructions made it fun, it was very fast to make and looks better than a lot of rose patterns out there. It took about 1/2 ounce of yarn for the small one. it measures about 3 1/2 inches across. I did take pics, but it wont let me upload them here. thanks much for the easy pattern for a nice rose.

I have blogged this tutorial and given credit back to you, hope you don't mind. It is a very easy pattern to follow and having the youtube clip as reference makes it a super easy tutorial. My daughter loves these flowers and wears them in her hair with a clip.

In your pattern you have a row 4. In going back to the video obviously there is no row 4, just repeating the stitches in row 3 to the end. Just thought I'd mention it. Love the rose:)

In the written pattern it shows a row 4, when there is no row 4 just a repeat of the petals to the end of Row 3. Just thought I'd mention it..love the rose:)Tks
