Thankfully, learning how to knit a rose is much easier than growing roses in the garden. In fact, you’ll be able to stitch one up with ease. Then, you can use your knit rose as an embellishment for another project, home decor or any other way you like.

2. Knitted rose pattern
This pretty bouquet of roses can be totally customized. Choose from a knit or felted 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!

3. Little rose booties
Babies still need help keeping their toes toasty, no matter how warm the weather is. These booties would make a great gift for a baby shower! Or, you could just make the rose embellishment and add it onto a different project.

4. Knitted rose cuff
Grab those tiny size 2 needles and get ready to knit a delicate rose 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…

5. 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.

6. Rose fascinator
Your love of roses will be totally obvious — and stylish — when you don this fascinator. Inspired by 1950s fashion, this rose pattern is designed to be a fascinator, but it can also function as an embellishment. Think pillows, totes and even scarves!

7. Art nouveau rose socks
I love how Bluprint 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.

9. Miniature Roses
Everything is cuter in miniature size, including a knit rose. This mini-bloom is knit on two 4 mm douple-pointed needles and ends up not even 3 inches tall. What a great option for using up tiny bits of scrap yarn!
