The Little Crochet Caddy Patterns

Wear Your Poppy with Pride

It is an important time of the year, and I think it’s important to wear your Poppy with pride.

I decided to crochet these little poppies as a show of respect and remembrance. Its a very simple pattern, one in which I hope you enjoy making and feel proud to wear.

What you’ll need

Red and black yarn. Any yarn you want to use should work!

The hook that your chosen yarn requires.

Darning needle.

Safety pin. (Or whatever you would like to use to attach the Poppy to your clothes)

Abbreviations 

ch – chain

dc – double crochet 

htr- half treble

tr – treble 

dtr- double treble

ss – slipstitch 

Poppy Pattern 

Red Petals of the Poppy

Begin with a magic circle

Round 1: ss, ch1, 12dc into the circle, pull the circle to comfortably close it, ss into first stitch 

Round 2: Ch3, tr into next stitch, 2tr into next stitch, 2dtr into next stitch, 2dtr into next stitch, 2tr into next stitch, htr, ss into next stitch, 3ch, tr into stitch, 2tr into next stitch, 2dtr into next stitch, 2dtr into next stitch, 2tr into next stitch, htr, ss into last stitch, fasten off.

Darn all the ends in. 

Black Polkadot Centre

Round 1: Chain 4, ss into first chain, ch1

Round 2: 12dc into the middle, ss into first st, fasten off (you should now have a teeny little black polkadot!)

Using the yarn ends of the polka dot, sew the polkadot to the red part of the poppy. (Make sure it looks nice and neat at the back!)

Now, to wear the poppy, I simply attached a safety pin to the back. You can use whatever you’d like to attach your poppy.

In theory you should now have a lovely little crochet poppy!

Remember, make a donation and wear your Poppy with pride!
