heeeeelpppp pleaseeee!!! or if anyone knows an easiest way to make a rose like this..



hello, i need help, i bought a magazine with all this tutorials, for curling ribbon crocheted flowers, but i don't understand the instructions.
the round 2 says:
working around top half of post of each edc on rnd 1, ch1, (sc, ch 1, 5 tr, ch1) around post of each edc around, join with sl st in beg sc. (outer petals)

rnd 3: working around bottom half of post of each edc on rnd 1 (sc, 3 dc, sc) aroound post of each edc around, join with sl st in bed sc. fasten off. (inner petals)

here is the pic (large size) with the image of the flower and the instructions.
i speak english biut no that well, so this makes it difficult for me tu understand this instrucctions. i don't get what working around top half post of each edc, plus why is this in a parenthesis {ch 1 (sc, ch 1, 5 tr, ch1).}
and how can i work from the top to the bottom of the ring..

heeeeelpppp pleaseeee!!! or if anyone knows an easiest way to make a rose like this..

So in rnd 1 you made 8 "edc" stitches in a circle. 

For rnd 2, the instructions just say to make a petal in each of these 8 stitches you made in rnd 1. 

So the part in parentheses (1 sc, ch 1, 5 tr, ch1) is 1 petal, and you make 8 of those - 1 in each stitch of rnd 1 - because there are 8 petals in the outer circle.

For the top and bottom issue, looking at the picture, you just want to make the outer petals in the furthest out part of the rnd 1 stitches, and the inner petals (rnd 3) by hooking into the rnd 1 stitches more in the middle area, because you can see that the rnd 3 petals are closer in to the middle.

I figured it out!!!  Just give me a minute to upload the photos!!
Ok, here is what the first round looks like:


For the second round, you do the (sc,ch1,5tr,ch1,sc) in the ch-2 spaces on the top:


For the third round it's a bit tricky cause you have to do the (sc,3dc,sc) on the tall posts 'between' the previous petals:


When you've done the first (sc,3dc,sc) thing on the first post, you want to put the first sc for the next one at the top of the next post:


It's kinda hard to see from the picture, but your flower gets super scrunched up while your making it.  When you're done with all the petals, this is what it looks like before you fasten off:


I hope this helps!!  I saw your post and just grabbed a G hook and ww yarn!  The first time i tried it, i did the inside petals in like a 'zigzag' direction, but it so didn't turn out right!!  I am left handed, so if you're not just pretend the hook is going in the other direction!!

I believe the instructions are to crochet the petals on the post.  If you think of the first round like a wheel, you crochet the petals on the spokes of the wheel- see below:


The rose petals will stand up this way (versus lying flat).  You arrange them to overlap.

The ch2  on the outer edge of the "wheel" are used to attach the leaves.

I tried to outline the "spokes" with dotted lines.  I'm right handed, I hope this makes sense.
 

Once you have all the outer petals done, use the post or spoke of the next petal to create the smaller inner petals.

WOW!!  I learn something new everyday!!!  I just tried 'your' way, and it works great!!  The petals do stand up more!  I love that the same flower can be made different ways and have such great results!!!  AWESOME!!!!!!!!!
