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
