Crochet Poppies Pattern
OK so we were asked to do a few poppies, most of the ones I have seen are basically round with a hint of petal, I have done two versions one with four petals and one simpler round one both are a good size. I crocheted them in DK bright red acrylic, with a black centre in a chunky acrylic with a 4.5mm hook. So here we go…
RED POPPY WITH PETALS
R1 C3 loosely, slip stitch to form ring
R2 C2, HT 10 times into the ring
R3 C2, 1HT into same stitch, 2HT into next stitch, 1HT into next stitch. This is the base for the first petal, turn and work on this petal only.
R4 C2, HT twice into each stitch to end
R5 C2, HT twice into each stitch to end. C1 the slip stitch 3 times down the left hand side of the petal then 1 slip stitch into the next stitch on the ring.
Repeat R2 – R6 3 times more to form 4 petals around the ring.
R6 1 slip stitch into first stitch on the ring then 3 slip stitches up the right hand side of the first petal, finish off.
C3, slip stitch to form ring, then slip stitch twice into each stitch on the outer edge of the stitches to form the
black spot, finish off and sew on the poppy.
ROUND RED POPPY
R1 Make loop, C3, slip stitch to form ring
R2 C2, HT 9 times into ring, slip stitch into 2nd chain to join the row
R3 C2, HT into same stitch, then HT twice into each stitch around the row, slip stitch into 2nd chain to
complete the row
