A little experimentation has been going on in my household this week to try find a workable, easy knit poppy pattern and I think I have done it. Would love your feedback.
The photo below shows how the pattern evolved. Clockwise from top left : starting with 72 stitches (not enough ruffle), top right 100 stitches and the bottom two poppies were 120 stitches … which seemed to work really well. I kinda like the button which made it much, much easier, and much, much quicker.
You can find the pattern here
About 5000 Poppies
The 5000 Poppies Project is a community tribute of respect and remembrance for our servicemen and women, their families and their communities. Created in 2013 by sisters in law Lynn Berry and Margaret Knight in honour of their fathers service in WWII, the project has been closely aligned with the Centenary of Anzac 2014 to 2018, and has consisted of a number of small and large scale installations made from handcrafted poppies from many thousands of contributors from all over the world.
Like the bottom left with the button. Thanks for the pattern, will find some wool and get started tonight.
Its a winner Ann … And so quick to make with the button L x
