Poppy Brooch – Free Crochet Pattern
This year I decided to make my own poppy brooch for Remembrance Day and I think the end result is quite cute.
These poppy brooches are easy and quick to crochet, you can make a bunch of them and gift them to your friends and family. The perfect last-minute project before Remembrance Day.
The poppy is crocheted in one piece using black for the center and red for the petals and the leaf is crocheted separately and attached at the back.
I used DK yarn and a 3mm crochet hook and my poppy came out about 6cm tall, if you want yours bigger and turn it into an applique for blankets, clothes or shawls, use a bigger size hook or thicker yarn.
Read on to see how to crochet this beautiful poppy brooch for yourself.

Poppy Brooch Crochet Pattern
- The petal round is crocheted in the back loops of the black middle circle, but, if it’s easier for you, you can crochet them through the entire stitch. The middle circle will look a little smaller, but just as beautiful overall.
- The leaf is crocheted separately and you can attach it at any angle you like
- ch3 and ch2 in round 3 count as stitches
- the number at the end of each round is the number of stitches you should have
- the leaf is crocheted on both sides of the chain
With black yarn create a magic ring
Round 1: 6sc into the magic ring, pull the tail of the magic ring to close it = 6
Round 2: inc x 6, sl st in the first stitch, fasten off and weave in the ends = 12
Switch to the red yarn and join in any back loop stitch of the black piece

Assembling The Poppy Brooch
Weave the top tail of the leaf back down at the base, now you will have 2 tails at the base of it. Make a knot and weave in one of them.
Use that tail to sew the leaf at the back of the poppy flower.
