With 4-ply (medium weight) yarn in red (or any color you want the rose to be) and size H hook-
Starting in 4th chain from the hook (DC, ch-3, sl st, ch-3, DC, ch-3, sl st) 2 times
then (sl st, ch-3, DC, ch-3, sl st) in the remaining stitches.
Fasten off leaving a long tail (at least 6")
Starting with the 1st 3 petals you made at the top, spiral the petals around, making 3 or 4 layers. When you're satisfied with how the flower looks, hold it together and sew the layers together using the tail (should be at the bottom of the flower) weave through to make sure it's secure, then tie off an leave a bit of the tail if you like for sewing the flower on to whatever you are embellishing with it.
And that's it for the flower :)
Now, if you'd like, you can make some LEAVES to add to the bottom:
Using a size C/D crochet hook or size you'd like (bigger hook will just make a slightly larger leaf) and green 4-ply yarn:
Sl st in 2nd ch from hook, SC in next ch, HDC in next ch, DC in next 2 ch, TR in next 2 ch, DC in next ch, HDC in next ch, sl st in next ch.
Fasten off. Leave the tails there for sewing onto the bottom of the flower.
