Thankfully, learning how to knit a rose is much easier than growing roses in the garden. Download these tutorials and patterns on how to knit a rose, and you’ll have a full bouquet in no time!

Friendship roses

Did you know that yellow roses are a symbol of friendship? Knit this rose knitting pattern for your best friend — even if your friend isn’t a June baby! And the flowers will last forever. Don’t worry about any crazy in-the-round work. These roses are knit flat and then seamed together to form their pretty shape.

Art nouveau rose socks

I love how Craftsy designer dawnbrocco incorporated the rose into these cozy socks. There’s even a rose on the heel, making these socks perfect for clogs or other shoes without a heel. To achieve the pretty roses, you’ll just need to know how to do stranded colorwork.

This pretty bouquet of roses can be totally customized. Choose from a knit or felt rose, or mix the two together as seen here. You can even change the yarn weight and needle size to vary the sizes of the roses. And did we mention the color choices? Knitting a rose has so many possibilities!

Babies still need help keeping their toes toasty, no matter how warm the weather is. These booties would make a great gift for a June baby — or any baby for that matter! Knitting a rose, including these booties, is a great idea year round.

Grab those tiny size 2 needles and get ready to make a delicate rose knitting pattern that sits right on your wrist. I already have a dozen color combinations in my head for these. And wouldn’t they make great gifts, too? I’m also wondering how I can use the rose alone as an embellishment. Hmm…

Knit, hand-dyed and felted rose

This isn’t one of the traditional rose knitting patterns, that’s for sure! Get a lesson in both hand dyeing and felting when knitting a rose. You also have the option to embellish if you’re feeling super sparkly. Check out the beads designer DaisyandFlorrie added for some inspiration.
