    I dont understand this pattern – how do I Fptr into next stitch, 1Tr into top of same Tr.? I end up with lots of holes.
    Is there a tutorial of this?

  2. Cynthia Deane says:

    Thanks for the link – I found it a little too fast for me to follow. It was hard seeing the stitches, particularly the black ones in the beginning
    maybe I’d better stick to the ones I can do, but I like to try new designs.

    Actually I have about twenty already do you want them sent now or later on – I have various friends making them as well.

    I just printed out two poppy patterns. What does one do with them? About 65 years ago, I used to sell poppies on downtown street corners for a long-forgotten organization. Now, with a daughter in the Navy, I belong to the American Legion Auxiliary. With a year to go to another National Poppy Day, I’d like to make as many as I can to share. Please contact me at Thank you.

      Hi Alice,
      Thanks for your comment.
      In answer to your question “What does one do with poppies?”
      If you have been on the site and had a read (see the “about” section on the menu), you can see that poppies are our way of showing our respect and remembrance for those who have served and continue to serve.
      We started very small, as a tribute by my sister in law and I to our fathers who both fought in WWII) and grew organically, as many thousands of people joined in creating a stunning series of installations in Australia and overseas, in honour of our servicemen and women, their families and their communities.
      It has been an incredible labour of love with around 50,000 participants creating almost one million poppies in the process. We have also inspired many thousands to create small and large installations in their local communities..
      And, we also wear our poppies with pride in remembrance on our memorial days.
      It has been an honour and a privilege for me to work on this project for the last six years …and we have created this amazing global community connected by a common thread of remembrance.
      So, in answer to your question : one remembers and reflects on the service and sacrifice of those who have served and continue to serve. It is a simple, but very powerful act of love and gratitude.
      Kindest regards,
      Lynn Berry OAM

        Thank you for responding, Lynn. Yes, I knew all that. I asked because I hope to crochet many poppies in prep for next year. I saw online the huge celebration they had in London, with what looked like millions of poppies. The royal family wore beautiful paper poppies at the ceremony. I don’t know what or how to attach to a poppy to wear it. Any ideas? I saw where a wreath of poppies was laid at a headstone, probably like our Unknown Soldier. Beautiful beyond words. Maybe I can do that, attach to a styrofoam ring, and take it to an American Legion for display. Thanks again, Alice
