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.
