I always seem to be asking for advice here, but never giving any back. Hopefully one day when I am a bit more experienced I can do the latter!
my question this time is does anyone know of a good rose pattern- am happy to pay obviously. I have Nicki Epstein's kniitted flower book and the ones in their are just not quite what I am after. I also want non-felted.  Basically want to make a bouquet of roses for my wedding day. Have seen what I am after here (well, something similar at least)http://www.theknitmonster.com/ourwedding-momspix001.JPG/ourwedding-momspix001-full;init:.JPG but there is no pattern. i have emailed the author of the blog too but not sure she will be writing up a  pattern. there must be something available online.. surely?

thank You!

No advice, but here's a link to the above:


They're mighty pretty, by the way.  I've never seen a pattern like that, so I'll be keeping watch!

Find me on Ravelry!

Thanks sassy-pants! My link was indeed very ugly. Appreciate that. They are beautiful. looking at other people's projects on ravelry, I think either the cabbage rose/ american beauty rose from Nicky Epstein may work (with yarn doubld maybe ). Just going to have to do some tests Smiley

I could be very wrong, but those look like they're constructed in the same way as ribbon roses...which are essentially a single strip of ribbon (in this case, garter stitch length, with stockinette to individualize each "petal"), which may or may not be narrower at one end--usually the center, and which is then simply gathered, very gently, around a stem.  If you look at the one center left, it looks like it follows that same pattern...one long continuous strip that's then gathered and tucked to make the rose.  Wouldn't take too long to experiment!

It lookes like five rows of knit then one row of purl repeated and we're looking at the back side of it. I counted thriteen repeats in one rose but there may be more as it curved away below the other petals.
