Poppy Flower Pin – Free Crochet Pattern
Today I am sharing with you a new pattern for a poppy pin. I have made before a poppy brooch, a poppy flower applique, a Tunisian poppy flower, and even a poppy baby blanket, but I realized I have not yet made a version that can be turned into a pin.
Remembrance Day is around the corner and I wanted you to have this pattern just in time so you can make a bunch of them for your friends and family.
The pattern is quick and simple and works up in no time, perfect as a last-minute project. It doesn’t require any sewing, it is all crocheted around the black center.
I have used DK yarn and a 3mm crochet hook to create a small poppy, but you can change the hook size and yarn weight to make a bigger one that can be used as appliques on blankets, hairbands, handbags and hats.
Read on to see how to crochet this beautiful poppy pin for yourself.
