Crochet Rose Broomstick Pattern
Crochet rose petal small.
Use red yarn. Chain 60, pull 60 loops on 24 mm broomstick knitting needle. Remove work off the broomstick. Fold in half. Pull 2 and 2 loops together on opposite side times 3 so that you have all up 6 loops together (3 per side). Secure with a slip stitch. 7 sc across 1st 6 loops together. Attach 6 more loops together with sl st. Crochet 3 sc +3-ch picot + 3 sc in loops. Repeat last 6 loops to end. Fasten off. Weave in ends. Fold the work together.
Before you work outside rose petals, begin making the rose stem. It is a lot easier to attach the larger rose petals if you have attached the smaller rose petals already to the stem. Use a sushi stick or barbecue stick. To make it easier to attach the yarn, one trick that I use is that I first wrap some wire across the stick. The wrap brown yarn across the stick and keep secure under some wire. Stitch the rose petals to stem.
Crochet leaves (make 4)
Use green yarn and chain 3, pull 3 loops onto the broomstick. Remove from broomstick. 14 sc all around (if you can’t fit 14, that’s fine too). Make sure the single crochet stitches are evenly worked around the loops. Fasten off. When you weave in ends, stitch the opening together. Stitch leaves to stem.
Crochet large rose petals
Work outside rose petals as follows. Chain 30, pull 30 loops over a ruler. Remove work off the ruler. Fold in half. Start at the top where the fold is. Pull 2 loops each side together with a slip stitch + 3-ch picot + 6 sc. Continue as follows down the fold: Pull 1 loop each side together with a slip stitch + 3-ch picot + 6 sc. Repeat pull 1 loop each side together with sl st + 3-ch picot + 6 sc to end. Fasten off. Weave in ends. Fold the work over the previous rose petals you worked.

Crochet Flower Pattern
This pattern uses US stitch abbreviation. Set the heirloom on the 3rd smallest setting. Crochet 40 loops each side with single crochet stitches. Take the work off the loom and attach all 40 loops on one side with a slip stitch and a single crochet. On the other side, attach 4 loops with a slip stitch and a single crochet. Crochet a 4-ch picot and fasten off. Repeat the process nine more times until all 4 loops are worked the same way. Fasten off and weave in the loose ends. Leave the middle cords from the middle of the circle and crochet sc over the cord. This will be the flower stem. Fasten off and weave in the ends.
Crochet Leaves Patterns
With green yarn and crochet hook size 3.0 mm, ch 3. Loop the loop on the crochet hook onto the Broomstick knitting needle. Loop 2 more loops onto the broomstick through the chains. Use the crochet hook to loop the loops onto the broomstick. Remove the boomstick. Crochet all 3 loops together with 14 sc. Distribute the sc evenly around the loops. When you get back to the 1st sc, crochet 4 ch picot. Fasten off. Use a sewing needle and close the gap in the middle.
Crochet flower stigma
The flower stigma is made by using brown yarn and crochet hook size 1.9 mm. Chain 3, turn, 1 dc in 3rd chain from hook. Fasten off. Use a swing needle and stitch it into a button.
Attach with a slip stitch and have the loop in the middle. Secure with a single crochet stitch on each loop after you flip the heirloom over. Keep making loops on each side until you have 21 loops that are secured with a single crochet stitch.
Free the work from loom. On one side, attach 7 loops with sl st, (ch 3, 1 sc in next loop) x 7, attach 7 loops with sl st.
On the other side, skip 4 loops and attach 13 loops with sl st. Attach the 4 loops on each side of the 13 loops together with a sl st. Fasten off, but don’t weave in the ends.
Instead of weaving in the end, you can leave them dangling down the sides. If you like you can use a smaller crochet hook and move the loose yarn bits to where you want them.

Crochet Mermaid Doll Amigurumi Pattern
I hope you enjoyed this cute Mermaid. Once you have finished crochet the tail, body, head, and arms, you can then stitch on the ‘bikini’. I used sewing thread. I also used sewing thread to stitch on a little mouth. Eyes were created by stitching on eyelids over brown felt. I stitched a little nose on by stitching back and forth in the middle of the face. For ears, I simply stitched on a looop of yarn each side.
Hair. 4 ply light blue yarn is used, however, the threads are separated which creates a curly look. Stitch on top of the head using a sewing needle. Stitch on the same way you would stitch on tassels.
