Lily Sugar 'n Cream Rose Bouquet

Crochet a bouquet of a dozen roses that’ll stay vibrant forever. These flowers make for an elegant centerpiece or window decoration.

Use a gauge of 15 sc and 16 rows (4") to crochet a full flower that measures approximately 4" wide and flower bud that measures approximately 2" long. Be sure to check your gauge. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your gauge swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Create your own, snap a picture, and share using #ACMooreInspired.
