A friend suggested I make a crochet poppy, never one to not accept a challenge, I did!
I had a look for different patterns to use, there’s loads out there!
These are a couple of free patterns I found:
I prefer the more natural looking flowers, so I used the pattern for the poppy from the headband. I switched the yellow yarn for black (no yellow yarn in my bag of tricks!).
It crocheted up quite quickly and I loved the leaf design. The pattern was quite easy to follow too.
These could be turned into brooches, button holes, handbag and hair accessories or added to blankets, scarves, cushions …. endless ideas!
Next time I might try adding a black button or bead in the middle.
See you soon
