Emma and her merry band of like-minded makers have been busy crocheting up a storm since summer to create loads of little handmade poppies to sell in order to raise money for Remembrance Day.
If you’ve already purchased a paper poppy and want to put your stitching skills to good use, Emma has kindly shared her Remembrance Day poppy crochet pattern (plus step-by-step tips) below.
Contact Emma here if you’d like to find out more about yarnbombing and where to send your finished poppies to.
Over to Emma…
This crochet pattern is worked in acrylic dk wool on a 3.75mm hook, but you can use any hook and any wool – get creative!
What you will need…
You will need a small amount of black wool and a bit of red. This pattern is great for using up all those spare bits of wool.
In Black wool:
Chain 6 and join to first chain with a slip stitch to form a loop.
Chain 3 (counts as your first treble), Work 11 trebles into the centre loop. Makes 12 stitches in total.
Change to Red wool:
Now let’s work our first petal. You are going to repeat this 4 times to make 4 petals in total.
We now have 40 stitches (but it doesn’t matter too much if you’re a stitch out here and there!)
This crochet pattern originally appeared on Emma’s website emmaleith.co.uk.
