I've made 2 pots of roses for 2 girl friends.  Comments appreciated.

The pots are made the magazine bowls method, while the roses are knitted.  The rose buds are made using Hershey Kisses chocolates.

Those are beautiful!  Can you tell me what pattern you used?  I have been trying to locate a knit pattern for roses for a long time and all I ever found was crocheted flowers.  ~Tricia

Basically, I adapted it just like I'm making a ruffle/spiral.  After that I just roll it up and stitch it a little to hold the shape.

Cast on 5 sts
Row 1: Purl
Row 2: Increase every st
Row 3: Purl
Row 4: Increase every st
Row 5: Purl
Row 6: Increase every st
Row 7: Purl
Row 8: Increase every st
Row 9: Cast off

You can vary the size of the rose with 2 ways:
!) Cast on more or lesser stitches
2) You can knit only 6 rows, instead of 9 rows.  (this gives you a something like a little rosebud)


Have fun!!

Ok, I made one this morning just before work...forgot and left it there so I don't have a pic of it yet...it's not very big and was wondering what size needles you used.  I just picked out my 8's and grabbed a small ball of leftover pink and white yarn on the way out the door.  It wasn't a very thick yarn so maybe that's why it turned out small.  I bought a skein of worsted red to try again later this week.  Your roses look really big to me.  ~Tricia

oops, i forgot to tell you to use a needle size much bigger than recommended.  i used size 10mm needles on both 4-ply and 8-ply yarn to create the different size.

10 MM!  Wow, that's  a whopping size 15 US!  No wonder your roses look so big LOL.  Ok, I think I have that size in my tub...will try that out...oh, forgot to ask...which way did you do your increases?  I used the knit in the front and back of each stitch.  Does it matter?  Thanks.  ~Tricia

Yap, it can go quite big if u use an 8-ply yarn with the size 10mm needles!  but its fun to see how it work out using different size yarn and needle size.

I increase but knitting in the front and back.

I've made two so far...gave the second one away to a lady I know who had to put her dog down, and as she was leaving the pet clinic where I work I put it with the clay pawprint we made of her dog's foot.  For the first rose I grabbed the first ball of scrap yarn that was handy as I went out the door and worked on the first one during break.  The second one I used one size larger needles than the first time and some red yarn I got at the store.
Well crumb...I don't know how to put the pictures from my computer onto here.  The first rose is dark pink and white and the second one is red.  ~Tricia

To post pics, u need to go to the right side bar, and look for "picture hosting".  You need to upload your pics there before u can post in craftsters.

Ok I finally made it back...posted the two roses I made...the pink one was my first and the red one was second.  Now when I get a few minutes I will use the larger needles and try another.  Thank you so much for the pattern.  ~Tricia

LOL No they don't!  I think yours are gorgeous. 
I am working on some more with size 13's  this time...didn't find my other needles yet...going to sort out my knitting stuff today so I can have them all in one place.  Do you do a knit cast off on yours or a purl cast off?  I did mine in knit, as I never think to cast off in purl unless a pattern says so.  This is so fun...I even take the petals off some flowers I had left over from other stuff so I can use the stems and leaves for these.  I may even put a drop or two of rose fragrance on them, if I can figure out where I put that also LOL.  Thank you again for sharing the pattern with me.  This gives me something small to take along on errands or trips where I will have some wait time with nothing to do.  ~Tricia

I casted off in knit too.  I hate casting off in purl unless the pattern calls for.   Tongue

I was actually also looking for a leaf pattern!  I love the idea of putting some fragrance on it.   I'm now learning how to make a hand bouquet out of these roses.

Here's one I have saved that could possibly be used.  The pattern called for fall colored varigated yarn and size 9 needles.  

Start with yarn about 12 before the color changes to the next color. Leave a 10 tail.
Use size 9 needles CO 5 stitches
Row 1: (RS) K2, YO, k1, YO, k2. (7) sts
Row 2 and all even rows: Purl
Row 3: K3, YO ,k1, YO, k3. (9) sts
Row 5: K4, YO, k1, YO, k1, k4. (11) sts
Row 7: K5, YO, k1, YO, k5. (13) sts
Row 9: Ssk, k9, k2tog. (11) sts
Row 11: Ssk, k7, k2tog. (9) sts
Row 13: Ssk, k5, k2tog. (7) sts
Row 15: Ssk k3, k2tog. (5) sts
Row 17: Ssk, k1, k2tog. (3) sts
Row 19: Sl 1, k2tog, psso. (1) st
Fasten off.

I will see if I can get a picture posted...brb.....

So I hadn't seen this topic before, but I just finished crocheting a dozen roses:
http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a323/iNap/02-06-07_1624.jpg
http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a323/iNap/02-06-07_1620.jpg

The roses (more like rosebuds now that I think about it) themselves used the pattern here, and the rest was improvised. The leaves were pretty simple (ch 8, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc, 2 dc, 2 tr, 3 sc in next ch, (up the other side of the chain) 2 tr, 2 dc, 2 sc), the stems are just sc rectangles wrapped around coat hanger wire, and the ribbon's just a long sc rectangle.

Now the trick is shipping all of that from Missouri to Massachusetts. ^_^
