A Dozen Red

Designed and woven by Judy Pagels

Besides a box of chocolates, what is the quintessential Valentine’s Day gift? Having been a floral designer for 11 years (and counting), I can say that the definitive answer is red roses! This is my offering of the same, created with Zoom Loom squares. Make your own, one or a dozen!

Most roses have names so mine will be called Colorado Red. This is the colorway of the yarn I used from Neota Designs, a 50% wool, 50% silk blend. This rich, complex red competes with the loveliest of the fresh varieties.

Each rose uses two squares. I fulled half of the squares to make them smaller for the inside of the rose.

Equipment and Materials

  • Zoom Loom
  • tapestry needle
  • yarn for weaving squares and assembling roses
  • flocked floral wire
  • paper-wrapped floral wire
  • green floral tape
  • artificial leaves
  • green fiber & needle felting tools (optional)
