Adapatable For Various Needlecrafts
For a wider project: When you have completed once through the chart, the pattern design can be repeated by skipping the last two blank squares on the right-hand side of the chart and also skipping the first two squares on the left-hand side and beginning again at the first leaf square (on the left-hand side of the chart).
Roses Design was originally published as a larger filet crochet chart in the book The Ladies World Filet Crochet Book, No. 2, published in the year 1916 (now in the public domain). I recharted a portion of the design to be in color symbols and I created the color example image.
Roses Design color example and the symbols chart on this page are

Just FYI - Per copyright laws, a person can't legally claim any copyright of their own for
recharting or rewriting instructions to another designer's pattern that is currently
under copyright protection, since variations of that copyrighted pattern are also protected
for the copyright holder. You can read for yourself how copyright law protects variations of
a copyrighted work, at the U.S. Government Copyright Office web site -
If a pattern (copyright before the year 1923) has fallen into the public domain, then new copyright can be applied to variations of (also called derivitive works of) that public domain pattern.
