I was playing around with some thread came up with a rose ring i thought you might like to make your self. Or even for fingers that swell, or can’t wear some metals. I could think of Many Reasons Why to make them, so here it is 🙂
American Terms. used.
sc~ single crochet
dc~ double crochet (only for leaf)
Tr~ Triple crochet (only for leaf)
What you will need~
your choice of needle~ i used a shape end with a large eye for the thread to go threw.
Number 4 steel hook( i used a #4 steel hook). or what ever size helps (most suggest a #7 to work this thread with.)
you will need thread. i used # 10 Thread.
in this case i used
Dark red, Blue, off white, and hunter green. all # 10 thread. you will not need much takes very little for a single ring.
ok if your ready lets get started 🙂
start with the off white or what ever color you would like to use for the base of the ring.
leave a long tail to sew in to the ring on both your starting thread and ending thread.
Row 1: ch 4. work sc across chain for 3 sc total. ch 1 turn,
Row 2: 3 sc ch 1, turn Repeat this Row tell it fits over the knuckle of the finger you want to wear it on. will be hard to see the rows and count stitches. i used 20 to 23 rows.
sl st the 3 sts. don’t cut tell it fits over the knuckle a little tight but sides on and back off finger.
fitting over the knuckle will work best,
if you get the ring wet it will stretch out so if it’s a little snug this will help it.
If it is loose already you may want to wear it on another finger and make a tighter one.
Ok now that you have the size as you like put your hook down, Cut the thread leaving a tail to sew with. Fold your ring in half with your first and last row matching. your 3 sl stitches. on top. with 2 thread ends from ring.
Now take one thread end and thread your needle (or if you rather tie them then do that.) work the thread end back and forth threw the 3 sl sts. weave it threw a few stitches in the row below to lock it in. The other end you can hold on and use it to weave back threw your rose or just weave it in and cut it off.
Now test your ring Does it fit? If it fits and your ready lets get to the next part.
The Rose and leaves~
#1~ In Blue or your choice color~ leave a long tail on both ends to sew with.
Ch 20, sc in 3rd chain from hook, ch 3, skip 2 stitches and sc, across. if you don’t have a sc in the last chain it’s not the end of the world. no one will see it. 🙂 cut. leave a long tail
#2~ in Dark Red~ or your choice color.
ch 20, sc in 3rd from hook. ch 2, sc in same stitch, sc next st, ch 2, sc in same stitch.( repeat sc ch 2, sc to end). cut leave long tail.
now roll the starting end up to the end with thread tails. ( like a cinnamon roll. )
Thread your needle and sew thew the center of the rose like slicing the cinnamon roll in half. work threw the other side the same when you have it ready to sew to ring slip needle to center and sew to center closing seam on your ring. this will cover your seam on ring. ( the 3 sl sts on top)
Now for the Leaves ~ make 2. Leave long tail on both ends to sew with.
(you can sl st on ring and start leaf or make it and sew it in place after. I did sl st on, worked leaf, then sl st to ring at end of leaf. used a long tail to sew leaves down not working all the way threw the ring. just picking up a loop or 2 to hold or tack it down. )
Chain 4, tr in 4th ch from hook. dc in same place cut. leave tail to sew to ring. both sides.
take one end thread needle and sew to ring just next to rose weave in end (or tie off on the under side.) thread other side and sew down and weave off or tie on under side and repeat with other leaf.
your done. i hope you enjoy your ring. 🙂 the sewing is the hardest part of it and getting one to fit you just right. you might have to make more than one. If you don’t like the sewing part you can tie them off like i said before 🙂 i hope that helps 🙂
my first one fits my pinky finger better than my ring finger 🙂 but after i get it wet it will fit perfectly 🙂
Shell 🙂 Lets see your rings:)
By the Way~ last night i thought it would be cute to have a corset like ring or a guarder like ring 🙂
the inspiration is endless 🙂
