  1. Nice! Thank you:) Do you happen to know any free patterns for a tiny rose bud to go with this leaf?

  2. I'm glad you like it! I haven't seen a pattern for a rose bud because I haven't really looked for something like that but I would suggest looking on Ravelry! I did a quick search and saw a few patterns and while the majority of them weren't small, you could use thinner yarn and a smaller hook and make it smaller :) Hope that helps!
