Take a look at this beautiful cowl necked sweater made with rose motifs. These motifs have an Irish crochet lace center (but this is not a raised 3D rose). The petals lay flat in the square's center.
The belt is optional and the sleeves can be made any length. The example photo has the sleeve length at the elbows.
The rest of the pattern can be found here:
This motif design can be used for a number of projects such as scarves, afghans, vests, headbands, etcetera.
Have fun and happy crocheting!!
