A Fluffier Rose

I've been experimenting with a fluffier rose:
 Each one has a slight difference in composition, from the original,
"Granny Rose in-the-Round", found here."
 Which one do you like best?
 #1 (Apricot)
 #2 (Saffron)
 #3 (Shrimp)

This is how I keep track of what I did differently to each one:
Sophisticated, huh? ;-)

From left to right:
Apricot, Saffron, Shrimp

Colors I do not generally use,
but this is as close to Autumn colors as I can get...for now.

I will pair them with these greens:
From left to right:
Khaki and Meadow

All Stylecraft Special DK

For a surprise project to come!

  1. Love your Stylecraft fluffy roses. That's what I made my autumn wreath out of in similar colours last September, using your lovely rose pattern! See under:
    I still have to make my heart-shaped wreath from your pretty heart shape! So many wonderful projects, but I can only do one at a time and right now I'm doing a small tablecloth which is taking quite long, in-between making presents for birthdays! Isn't crochet just wonderful?

  2. I like them in this order apricot, saffron then shrimp but even though I have put the shrimp rose shape last, I would have put the shrimp colour first haha perhaps I had better shut up now, have a lovely day Astri :) xx

  3. Saffron or shrimp if I have to choose. They are all beautiful.
    My Norwegian wool heart "dies" when I see acrylic yarn, but I do love the colors.
    Looking forward to what you magically will spinn up for us.
    Have a nice day.

  4. Great autumn colours Astri!! I look forward to seeing what they turn into. xx

  5. It's kind of hard to choose because all 3 look nice, but if I have to - I choose the 'shrimp' one. :)

  6. I like the shrimp one the best. All such pretty colors too.

  7. It's not an easy decision, but if I have to pick one, I'd pick the shrimp. :)

  8. Very pretty Astri. I like the shrimp best.


  9. I think I like the apricot one best, but it's hard to pick because, as usual, they're all pretty! I can't wait to see your latest project. (By the way, I love those yarn colors!)

  10. J'aime beaucoup ce choix de couleurs :)

  11. Hello Astri, the roses are so pretty, I love the pattern.. but those colours... just gorgeous :))
