When I set out to design a crocheted rose that was truly different from all the ones I'd crocheted over the years, it took a long time to figure out exactly what I wanted to do! But the wait was worth it - I finally found my inspiration in a photo I'd taken of a rose I grew in my garden years ago. The Backward Rose, as the name implies, is crocheted in a very unique way! First we work outward, then we work inward! It's quite easy and fun to crochet too! I hope you enjoy my Backward Rose, and be sure to check out the other doilies and designs that were designed to use the motif! GAUGE Not given PREFERRED BRAND/YARN DMC Traditions COLORWAY Any

Welcome! I'm Sheila. I've crocheted since I was about 11, and I've been designing for over 20 years now. I started after my eyes lost the ability to jump quickly back and forth from pattern to work. I started doing my own thing and never looked back! The vast majority of my work is in thread crochet, although I do enjoy my yarns too. I love to design 3D crocheted objects that are accented by my jewelrymaking hobby, too. I also enjoy creating accessories and winter warming objects like afghans, unique scarves, etc. My patterns are sold to support the needs of my Miniature Schnauzer rescue dogs. We operate as Sheila's Schnauzies, a nonprofit organization and currently have four furkids here. We all appreciate your support! If you'd like to see my crochet theme artwork printed on things like t-shirts and tote bags, stop by I do offer quite an extensive selection of free patterns at There you'll find a complete index of my free patterns. Thanks for coming by! Happy Crocheting,  Sheila
