Watch how to crochet the rosette stitch

See the video above for an in-depth tutorial on crocheting the rosette stitch.
This stitch is delicate and pretty, just like you! It resembles a sweet rosette motif, with lots of detail and flair. It's the perfect stitch for a baby blanket, scarf or dish scrubby.
It always comes out most beautiful when you use variegated yarn (yarn with many colors in the same skein) with a short color change (meaning the colors change very often). This way, you get several colors of yarn within each rosette stitch, resembling petals of a flower. Neat, huh? I think so, too!

I chose to use a bulky chenille-style yarn for my sample to teach you all the rosette stitch, because it makes for the cuddliest blanket. However, you can use any weight yarn and the corresponding hook size to achieve the rosette effect; just read the yarn packaging to decide which size hook you should use.
What can you make?
Once you master this easy, puffy stitch, use it to make a beautiful throw blanket like this one.

I've created the rosette stitch based loosely on the cluster stitch, with a few modifications and yarn recommendations. Replace the cluster stitch (or puff stitch) for this fun, flowery version in your favorite patterns. You won't be sorry you did!
Make it any size!
To make any size blanket, scarf, potholder or any other project, just change your size by changing the number of stitches in your foundation chain. Now you can make just about anything.
This stitch calls for a foundation chain of a multiple of 5 + 4.
So simply decide how many multiples of five stitches you'd like for your project and go to town.
