Crocheted rose tutorial UK terminology

Recently I have not done much crochet but, because it has had such a resurgence in popularity I have decided to teach it again.

I have designed this pattern because it has such a wide range of uses and can be used on a quilt, bag, hat  or as a brooch
The pattern is suitable for beginners and is written in UK crochet terms
Abbreviations: beg = beginning, sl st = slip stitch, ch = chain, 
dc = double crochet, htr = half treble, tr = treble, dtr = double treble
ROSES
ch 34 leaving a 9” tail
Row 1: 
1dc into 2nd ch from hook and into each ch to end
Row 2: 5 htr into 2nd dc, 1 ss into next dc, 
*5 htr into next dc, 1 ss into next dc*, repeat from *to*  twice (4 clusters)
*5 tr into next dc, 1 ss into next dc*, repeat from *to* 4 times (9 clusters)
*5 dtr into next dc, 1 ss into next dc*, repeat from *to* 6 times (16 clusters)
To assemble – fold over the first two small clusters then roll gently and sew in place at the back of the rose
LEAVES
ch8 , 8 tr in fourth ch from hook, 1 htr in next ch, 1 dc in next ch, 1 ss, 1 ch, 1 ss in last ch
Turn work round, 1 dc in next ch, 1 htr in next  ch, 8tr in next ch. Fasten off

These have so many uses and are a great way to use leftover wool
