My Little Poppy ..

Hello my dear friends,

I thought you might like to know how my tiny crochet poppies are made and since I love to share, I am sharing a little how~to with all of you Lovelies today.

As you can see ...

... they are quite small and one fits perfectly on top of a penny.

As always, there are written instructions and a drawn pattern with crochet symbols so you have either to work with, depending which ever you prefer.

And this is how it is made ...

Make a magic ring and in this ring crochet the following ...

... *3 chain stitch, 3 double crochet, 3 chain stitch, 1 slip stitch.* Repeat this * two more times and finish by pulling the thread through the last slip stitch and now you have your first poppy!

A little something to know about wearing poppies for Remembrance Day, is to know what the colors stand for ...

... a red poppy is to remember all those who have fought and lost theirs lives and those that are still fighting for their country,
... a purple poppy is to remember all the 'war animals' that have supported mankind in war times.
And finally ... a white poppy is the symbol for peace.

I hope you like my new free little how~to and maybe one day it will come in handy for some of you. If you have a few spare moments, why not stop by sometime soon again, I just might have something new to share with you.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. You are such a generous person. I love your heart. Thank you for this turtorial.

  2. I love your poppies, even I have two left hands to make them.

  3. This is a wonderful tutorial - thank you once again. I wasn't aware of the significance of a purple poppy so thank you for that too.

  4. Thank you for this precious little flower. I think I will make a few, affix a small jewel and then attach them with the smallest safety pin to my holiday top or tee shirt. This way, I can take them off when I wash the top. Happy Thanksgiving to you & yours.

  5. Soooo sweet Karen.
    Have a great new week ahead.
