Fasten off. Cut the yarn leaving a tail about 10 cm long.
Now, start curling the small crocheted piece around itself in a spiral, checking and adjusting so that a pretty ‘flower’ shape is formed. Secure the ‘petals’ together with a few stitches while you wrap the spiral so that the flower is held together securely.
This pretty rose flower is now ready and can be used for many projects like appliqués, necklaces, brooches, decorations and… yarnbombing! 🙂
