Crochet rose bookmark


Crochet ROSE flower that I usually use for a bookmark / bookmarker. With thicker yarn / wool you can make bigger flowers for accessorize a hat or a bag and with a much thinner yarn you can make tiny crochet roses and use them for a jewellery piece.

This is just a simple basic crochet pattern for a rose.

Pattern for crochet rose in words:

  • 1 – ch 37 – remember the last chain – put a marker in
  • 2 – ch 5, dc in the marked stitch, {skip 2ch and in the 3rd ch from the hook dc, ch2, dc in the same stitch} x 12 – in total you will have 13 V spaces on your chain
  • 3 – ch3, 5dc in the ch2 of the previous row, ch2, sc in between 2dc from the previous row, {ch2, 5dc, ch2, sc}x 11, ch2, 5dc, ch3, ss in the 3rd stitch from the ch5 or the previous row
  • ch 1, cut the yarn, leave enough to sew the rose together – 25cm, and pull the yarn through the ch


Because I am working with cotton yarn I ironed and blocked the rose before starting the swirling.

Now to assemble it together you just start to swirl it around the first petal. You can see in the picture below how to do it in steps and then sew together at the bottom.


Easy flower leaf

Now to make a bookmark you will need a stopper at the bottom and for that I will be making a leaf. A double leaf.

The pattern diagram for the one double leaf or two leaves is

After you finish the double leaf you continue with the stem.

The stem is as long as you need it to be for the bookmark. I am making the string of chains 30cm long.

Now at the top where the flower and stem should join you make a sepal.

Now for the sepal work from the last chain of the stem.

The pattern for the top sepal is a simple circle with a base of 6 stitches.

Written pattern for sepal:

  • magic ring
  • 6sc
  • ch 1, {inc}x6 → 12
  • ch1, {inc, sc}x6 → 18
  • {ch3, sc} x18 → 18 – this makes an uneven edge

Leave a bit of yarn to sew the rose and the sepal together.
