One of the most beautiful winter flowers that grows on the edge of the woods and where it takes a bit of color at the foot of the big trees but also the bushes.
There are so many legends that tie the Christmas Rose to the Nativity and symbolize hope. I liked the idea of ​​recreating this lovely crocheted flower at this time, to be offered as an alternative to the classic Christmas Star             
. To make it, you have to prepare the flower, bud, pistil, 2 leaflets that replace the chalice and the leaves that are grouped 5 through the iron wire.
                                                                                       -English-

Explanation of the bud.

Start 6 chains and close in circle.
1 turn: 4 double crochet, turn the job.
2 lap: one half double crochet and one double crochet at one point, two triple crochet in one point for 2 times, one double crochet and one half double crochet at one point, run the job.
3 laps: a single crochet and a half double crochet at one point, 2 double crochet, triple crochet in a point 2 times, 2 double crochet, a half double crochet and a single crochet at one point.
Get off with the slip stitch up to the 6 chain chains and resemble the same for a total of 5 petals.


Explanation of the pistil.


Start 6 chains and close in circle.
1 turn: 8 chains, a single crochet in the circle. Repeat the same for a total of 8 times.
2 revolutions: bend the bow of the 8 chains and in the circle of the previous 6 chains make: a single crochet, 9 chains. Repeat the same for a total of 8 times.

Explanation of the leaves that replace the chalice.


Start 10 chains.
1 lap: 2 single crochet, 2 half double crochet, 2 double crochet in one point, 2 half double crochet, 2 single crochet. Repeat the same on the other side of the chains.


Do 10 more chains again and then resemble another leaf. The additional chain will join the 2 leaves and serve to insert them into the stem.




Now we prepare the stem by cutting a piece of plastic wire of the appropriate length and on a tip we wrap several times the yellow cotton to form a small ball, with a clamp bending the tip to lock the cotton and get the small pistil that will also from pin to holding the flower. To put the flower into the stem before the pistil, then the flower, then with brown cotton fill the stem by working around the chains for about 2 cm, then insert the 2 leaflets through the "chains in addition", then continue covering all the stem except that piece that will be inserted inside the vessel. For the bush the same procedure, except the pistil that is not necessary and the leaves that will be inserted immediately after the bud.

Now let's go to the leaves that are grouped together to 5 seals together from the galvanized iron wire.

Explanation of the leaf.

To give more thickness to these leaves I used cotton number 10.

Start 30 chains.
1 lap: 3 single crochet, 3 half double crochet, 3 double crochet, 3 triple crochet, 5 double triple crochet, 3 triple crochet, 3 double crochet, 3 half double crochet, 3 single crochet. Repeat the same on the other side of the chains.

Now cut a piece of galvanized iron wire that turns 5 leaves more 15-20 cm per side, which will then serve to create the small stem of the leaf. Join the leaf by working around the single crochet. We tend the leaf well and twist the iron wire twice or three times on it to lock the cotton and make 2-3 chains around the iron wire to close the leaf and without cutting the cotton we work another identical leaf for a total of five leaves. From the second leaf on to put the iron wire and work on the single crochet you have to go down with the slip stitch. Once all 5 leaves have been wound up, the remaining iron wire will be twisted to form a small stalk of 10-15 cm. Cover it with cotton by working around the chains except that piece that will serve to inject the leaf into the jar. Place the flowers in the center of the vase with buds and all around the leaves. Now you just have to admire your Christmas Rose.

I hope I have explained everything to the best and have given you an extra idea. Good creation to everyone next hello!
