I had a bit of left over chenille yarn from when I made the cushion cover, so I sat down and had a little play for 10 minutes.
Yep, this is a super quick make, and great for jazzing up some bobbles, or a hairband.
The rose is made already attached to the hair bobble, so you’ve got no worries about it falling off.
These are perfect for selling at craft fairs – why? Well they are super quick to make, and use up the left overs of yarn.
If you wanted to buy a ball of yarn to make these, I think you’d probably get about 20-30 from one ball of this yarn, which at £3.99 a ball is a great return.
1 pack of bobbles £1, Yarn £4 = £5 spend. Say you make 25 from a ball, sell them for £2 each. That would be a clear £45 profit! (I might just make some more myself!)
Row 1: Make a slip knot, make 5 SC around the bobble, then chain 11 [16sts]
Row 2: In the 3rd chain from the hook, make a DC, * chain 1, skip a stitch, DC – repeat from * across (This will make a ladder effect).
Row 3: chain 3, 3dc in the gap of the ladder, * ss to the next rung over. 4dc in the next gap. Repeat from * across. Fasten off leaving a long end for sewing.
Wind the rose up starting where it is joined to the bobble, and finishing with the last petal in the middle. Sew together with the long end, then weave in the ends.
Here you go….. a few hair roses.
