Embroidery Floss Roses ~ Day 3

Embroidery Floss Crochet Roses

Using embroidery floss instead of yarn makes some amazingly cute petite roses. Great for hairclips, pins, rings, or any kind of decoration. 
What you need:
1 skein of embroidery floss (8.75 to 10 yards)
E hook (smaller if you want but this is the size I like to use)
Embroidery needle
Ch 29, dc in the 5th ch from hook, *Sk 1 ch, dc, ch1, dc in next st*. Repeat to the end of the ch. Ch 2, turn
5dc in the first ch sp in the previous row. Sc between the two dc (see picture). *6 dc in the next ch sp. Sc between the next 2 dc*. Repeat to the end. Finish off leaving a 6 inch tail.

Starting with the end of your lace strip that you just finished, roll up the strip like a burrito. Use the long tails to sew through the base to hold flower shape.
