Quick Crochet 'Remembrance Day' Poppy Brooch

I saw that The Smiling Robot had made herself a poppy for Remembrance Day.  I thought it was a lovely idea to crochet a brooch.  Off to trusty old Ravelry for a pattern and I chose this Free Pattern Here.  I altered it a little accidentally on purpose.
I sewed a safety pin to the back and Voila!  One Poppy Brooch.  I had more trouble photographing it than crocheting it.  The colour either turned out shocking cerise or this rusty red.  I chose to be kind on your eyes and select the rusty red pictures.  The poppy is actually 'Poppy' red in real life, but in Blogland it is this colour.  I love my little point and shoot camera, but I don't understand it fully, I haven't worked out how to access the menu or what all the functions are  -  you may have guessed I am not a read the manual kind of gal!

 I will be wearing my poppy with pride.


  1. I love your poppy - so much more detailed than mine and it looks great :D

  2. Good job on the poppy!! I actually have printed up a pattern for some crochet flower pins that I need to do. You are a good inspiration.

  5. Your poppy is beautiful!!

  6. your poppy is so lovely and such a beautiful idea.
    i used to work in a military hospital and definitely wear my poppy with pride.
