Tutorial Tuesday: Crochet Poppy Pattern

We've got a crochet poppy tutorial for you in time for Remembrance Day in November

This tutorial by Mel Brooke is free, but we ask that you use it for fund-raising, or if for yourself, you donate to the likes of the British Royal Legion to raise money for serving and ex-Sevice People. 

 

 

Materials

red DK cotton
black cotton thread
mix of crystal beads, small piece of black felt, brooch finding
3.5mm crochet hook
flower loom
sewing needle
scissors
glue

 

Simply Make

1 Begin by making 4 ch and leave a long tail end of around 20cm
2 1 tr in second loop from hook, then 2 tr in next 2 ch stitches, 3 ch
3 Turn ready for new row, make 2 tr in each treble space, 3 ch.
4 Repeat Step 3.
5 Turn ready for new row then 1 tr in each treble space to end, 3 ch.
6 Repeat Step 4 then fasten off, sew in the end and trim.
7 Thread the remaining long tail end of the yarn through a sewing needle and make a running stitch around the edge of the petal. Pull gently to shape.
8 Make four petals in total (repeating steps 1-7) and use the thread ends to sew the petals together in pairs as shown
9 Layer the two pairs of petals, one on top the other as shown and use a thread end to sew them together around the centre, slightly catching each petal behind the next to secure.


10 Create the centre stamens by making a small flower using thin black crochet cotton on a flower loom.
11 Snip the looped petals of the small black flower so that they better resemble stamens. Sew it to the middle of the poppy
12 Sew a selection of crystals in the centre of the poppy and attach a brooch finding to the back to finish.
