POPPY FLOWER … How to make Poppy Flower Brooch… Free Crochet Tutorial

Hello Friends,

‘The Remembrance Day’ is celebrated on November 11th. My humble condolence to all the brave soldiers. I just couldn’t stop making these cute little flowers. I hope this tutorial is helpful to all those who want to make these on their own.

Step by step Tutorial:

I’m using 2.5 mm hook and red acrylic yarn from women’s institute. Green felt for leaves, you can use dark green or any other green that you get. I got light color so I used it. And red or maroon felt for the back cover. Small black buttons, black, red and green threads, tapestry needle.

Abbreviations:

  • Ch – chain
  • Sc – single crochet
  • Dc – double crochet
  • Tr – treble crochet
  • Sl st – slip stitch
  • St –  stitch

ROW 1: Ch 4, sl st into the 1st ch (make a magic ring)Poppy 1

Salute to all the Soldiers.
