I found a pattern for a crocheted rose on the Moda Dea website that is SO COOL. I posted a picture of it on my blog. It only takes about 70 yards. What a great way to use up leftover yarn, or try out a ball of novelty yarn. Here it is:
I think it is lovely ... though I am not very good at crocheting, especially in the rounds. During my MIL's visit, I made some roses using the K1 pattern. They are lovely. But I am thinking if I can tie up the loose ends and change it into a pin. Any suggestion?

You can buy pin backs at Michael's and Wal-Mart. Attaching the yarn to the metal could be tricky. I've tried regular glue and fabric glue, to no avail. Will have to break down and buy the thick tacky glue that comes in a jar and see if that works. Good luck!
