Crochet a colourful rose rug
Use basic crochet to make a colourful rug for your home. This rose rug is made up of different coloured roses that are sewn together. You can make the rug in your choice of colours and as small or as large as you want.

Thread an embroidery needle with wool from beginning chain. With right side facing and beginning with first petal made, roll to make the rose shape; sew to secure as you roll. Then thread needle with ending piece and sew to secure.
