Once your piece looks like this you need to feed the yarn using a needle through every other stitch on the bottom row.
As you go along the row pull the yarn to ruffle the rose and start shaping it with the starting shorter end being the middle of the rose.
Once you have the Rose in the required shape sew the flower together to keep it in place.
You Rose is now finished.
You can use it to decorate an item or add a pin or clip.
The choice is yours.
