Smaller size may be worked in any fine crochet cotton, such as Katia Monaco Baby, or in any 4ply yarn with a 2.5mm or 3mm hook to suit.
Larger size may be worked in any DK weight cotton or blend of your choice, with a 3.5mm or 4mm hook.
Work the Rose to measure 4cm/1½in across using 4ply yarn and 2.5mm hook, 4.5cm/1¾in using DK yarn and 3.5mm hook, or 5cm/2in using DK yarn and 4mm hook, or sizes required to obtain tension.
Worked in 4ply yarn, these will measure approx 9cm/3½in from heel to toe.
Worked in a DK yarn they will measure approx 12cm/4¾in from heel to toe.
