This miniature version of the traditional ribbon tied rose bouquet in needlepoint features two colors of roses and tiny lily of the valley stems. The chart, 33 x 36 stitches, should be worked in tent stitch / continental stitch. I have used a range of peach and deep rose tones for the roses, but these, and any backing color, can easily be adapted to suit your particular color scheme. Each rose is worked with a pale, mid and deep color tone. As shown I have worked the chart with a single strand of embroidery cotton on 42 count silk gauze, which gives me a finished design just over 3/4 inch square.

A printable version of the chart can be obtained by using the Rose Bouquet With Lily of the Valley Chart which is available as an Acrobat Reader (pdf) file.

A similar, slightly larger and more detailed vintage floral bouquet chart without the ribbon tie, can be found on the needlepoint site at about.com.
