I don’t know about you but I always tend to kill my indoor plants. Heck, I even have difficulty keeping outdoor plants alive sometimes! But here comes the amigurumi rose that I’ve dubbed The Forever Rose! This is a super simple amigurumi pattern to work up for the beginner (and it’s my first amigurumi pattern I’ve ever written!).
You’ll need a few different colors of yarn, some stuffing, and some patience.
Alternatively, you can buy an ad-free version of this pattern in a few different places. The ad-free PDF comes with full color pictures to help you along!

Starting with the Pot
To start: Begin with a magic ring
Row 1: Ch1, 6sc in ring, pull closed, ss to 1st sc to join (6)
Row 2: Ch1, inc sm sp, [inc] around, ss to 1st sc to join (12)
Row 3: Ch1, 1sc sm sp, inc, [1sc, inc] around, ss to 1st sc to join (18)
Row 4: Ch1, 1sc sm sp, 1sc, inc, [2sc, inc] around, ss to 1st sc to join (24)
Row 5: Ch1, 1sc sm sp, 2sc, inc, [3sc, inc] around, ss to 1st sc to join (30)
Row 6: Ch1, 1sc sm sp, 3sc, inc, [4sc, inc] around, ss to 1st sc to join (36)
Row 7: Ch1, 1sc sm sp, 4sc, inc, [5sc, inc] around, ss to 1st sc to join (42)
Row 8: Ch1, 1sc sm sp, 5sc, inc, [6sc, inc] around, ss to 1st sc to join (48)
Row 9: Ch1, 1sc BLO sm sp, 1sc BLO around, ss to 1st sc to join (48)
Row 10-17: Ch1, 1sc sm sp, 1sc around, ss to 1st sc to join(48)
Row 18: Ch1, 1sc sm sp, 1sc around but do not join – drop the pot color and join the brown with the sl st
At this point, if you choose to do so, place your cardstock or cardboard inside the pot on the bottom. This will help stabilize it and keep the bottom flat.
On to the Soil!
Row 19: Ch1, 1sc sm sp, 1sc BLO around, ss to 1st sc to join
Row 20: Ch1, dec, [5sc, dec] x 6, 4sc, ss to 1st st to join (41)
Row 21: Ch1, dec, [4sc, dec] x 6, 3sc, ss to 1st st to join (34
Row 22: Ch1, dec, [3sc, dec] x 6, 2sc, ss to 1st st to join (27) – begin stuffing the pot
Row 23: Ch1, dec, [2sc, dec] x 6, 1sc, ss to 1st st to join (20)
Row 24: Ch1, dec around, ss to 1st st to join (10)
Row 25: Repeat row 24 (5) – you might have a small hole left, that’s okay
Fasten off with a long tail and use that tail to sew through row 25. Pull it tight to close whatever hole you have left and weave in the ends.
Now lets make the rose!
To start, with your chosen rose color, chain 50.
Row 1: 1sc in 2nd ch from hook, [ch2, sk 1 st, sc] across, ch1, turn (24 ch2 spaces)
Row 2: ss into 1st ch2 sp, [ (hdc, 2dc, tr, 2dc, hdc) in next st, ss in next ch2 sp ] across, ending with a (hdc, 2dc, tr, 2dc, hdc) in the last st – fasten off leaving a long tail (12 petals)
To shape the rose, wind the rose up in a spiral with the starting chain on the bottom. Take your long tail that you fastened off with and thread it back and forth through the starting chain to sew the rose together and hold it in place.
Lastly, let’s make the leaves – make 3!
Row 1: 1sc 2nd chain from hook, 3sc, [2sc, ch2, 2sc] in next st – working down the other side of the chain, 4sc, ch1, turn (12)
Row 2: 1sc sm sp, 5sc, [2sc, ch2, 2sc] in ch2 sp, 6sc (16) – fasten off with a long tail for sewing
Finishing the Forever Rose
Now that you have all of your pieces made, it’s time to construct it. Adjust the rose and leaves on top of the soil in any way you’d like. Then sew all the pieces in place and hide the ends inside the pot!
