Spider-Web Rose

Spider-Web Rose


Spider-Web Rose is a lovely stitch to use for beautiful, realistic roses.

Use one or two strands of thread to make five foundation spokes


Change to 4 or 7mm silk, or 6mm organza ribbon.

Thread up and come up in the centre of the spoke.

Give the ribbon a slight twist – insert needle it under and over the foundation stitches,

until the spokes are no longer visible.



Hint 1: Any foundation stitches that are showing on the side of the completed rose can be covered with leaves a little later.

Hint 2: Use a gentle tension as you weave the ribbon under and over the spokes so that a soft, open rose is formed.
