Create your own 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 🙂

Unsure of the differences between UK and US terms? Need a refresher on how to do your stitches? In my ‘How to crochet: A handy reference guild’ EBook I help you with all of these terms and you can always have them to hand! You will also get exclusive access to free video instructions.
