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

Wow, i can't wait to see!

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
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should get used to the idea.

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
