The Forever Rose Crochet Pattern is one I created because I don’t have a lot of space in my home for plants – and I always forget to water them! This cute little potted rose is the perfect solution. It fits wherever I want – because it fits in my hand – and I don’t have to water it. It will stay this beautiful forever and I don’t have to worry about killing it! If you make this rose crochet pattern, share it with me! Tag me on Instagram @roundthecauldron_crochet
This pattern is not worked in the round. Each row is joined with a slip stitch at the end of the row. The number in parentheses at the end of each row corresponds with the stitch count that row should have.
Thank you to my pattern testers!

Start with the pot.
To start: Begin with a magic ring
Row 1: Ch1, 6sc in ring, pull closed, ss to 1st sc to join (6)
Row 2: Ch1, inc sm sp, [inc] around, ss to 1st sc to join (12)
Row 3: Ch1, 1sc sm sp, inc, [1sc, inc] around, ss to 1st sc to join (18)
Row 4: Ch1, 1sc sm sp, 1sc, inc, [2sc, inc] around, ss to 1st sc to join (24)
Row 5: Ch1, 1sc sm sp, 2sc, inc, [3sc, inc] around, ss to 1st sc to join (30)
Row 6: Ch1, 1sc sm sp, 3sc, inc, [4sc, inc] around, ss to 1st sc to join (36)
Row 7: Ch1, 1sc sm sp, 4sc, inc, [5sc, inc] around, ss to 1st sc to join (42)
Row 8: Ch1, 1sc sm sp, 5sc, inc, [6sc, inc] around, ss to 1st sc to join (48)
Row 9: Ch1, 1sc BLO sm sp, 1sc BLO around, ss to 1st sc to join (48)
Row 10-17: Ch1, 1sc sm sp, 1sc around, ss to 1st sc to join(48)
At this point, if you choose to do so, place your cardstock or cardboard inside the pot on the bottom. This will help stabilize it and keep the bottom flat.
Now for the soil…
Row 19: Ch1, 1sc sm sp, 1sc BLO around, ss to 1st sc to join
Row 20: Ch1, dec, [5sc, dec] x 6, 4sc, ss to 1st st to join (41)
Row 21: Ch1, dec, [4sc, dec] x 6, 3sc, ss to 1st st to join (34
Row 22: Ch1, dec, [3sc, dec] x 6, 2sc, ss to 1st st to join (27)
begin stuffing the pot
Row 23: Ch1, dec, [2sc, dec] x 6, 1sc, ss to 1st st to join (20)
Row 24: Ch1, dec around, ss to 1st st to join (10)
Row 25: Repeat row 24 (5)
You might have a small hole left, that’s okay. Fasten off with a long tail and use that tail to sew through row 25. Pull it tight to close whatever hole you have left and weave in the ends.
Now let’s make the rose!
To start, with your chosen rose color, chain 50.
Row 1: 1sc in 2nd ch from hook, [ch2, sk 1 st, sc] across, ch1, turn (24 ch2 spaces)
Row 2: ss into 1st ch2 sp, [ (hdc, 2dc, tr, 2dc, hdc) in next st, ss in next ch2 sp ] across, ending with a (hdc, 2dc, tr, 2dc, hdc) in the last st – fasten off leaving a long tail (12 petals)
To shape the rose…
Wind the rose up in a spiral with the starting chain on the bottom. Take your long tail that you fastened off with and thread it back and forth through the starting chain to sew the rose together and hold it in place.
Lastly, let’s make the leaves – make 3!
To start, with your chosen leaf color, chain 6.
Row 1: 1sc 2nd chain from hook, 3sc, [2sc, ch2, 2sc] in next st – working down the other side of the chain, 4sc, ch1, turn (12)
Row 2: 1sc sm sp, 5sc, [2sc, ch2, 2sc] in ch2 sp, 6sc (16) – fasten off with a long tail for sewing
Now that you have all your pieces, arrange them in whatever way you want and sew them together!
