Create your own Crochet Poppy and leaf for remembrance day. I have the video tutorial up on YouTube of how to make it step by step, and here is the written pattern. I think it is so important that we pay our respects to the service men and women of past, present and future. Please feel free to use this tutorial to make poppies to wear for yourself or to sell to make money for the charity. All I ask is that you make a donation– no matter how big or small 🙂
Once you’ve crochet yourself a few of these gorgeous little poppies, why not try whipping up some cosy makes too. Check out these 10 Cosy Crochet Patterns for Autumn.
