I have been playing around with crochet corsages recently, making them up as I go along. I plan to make a big bunch for Christmas presents. I thought it would be nice to make a poppy one for rememberance day. Don't know whether this is just a UK thing but it is traditional to wear artificial poppies fpr Rememberance Sunday (today) and armistace day on 11/11. I have to remember to give some money to one of the collecting boxes where they sell paper poppies as making my own means I have missed out on a donation which is the main point!

That is beautiful, i`m in the UK and i bet if you make more of these for next year, sell them for the poppy appeal, you`ll raise a load of money . Smiley

I live in Canada and we wear our poppies til Remembrance Day.  I love your poppy! I always buy a poppy then promptly lose it off my coat.. i tried earring butterfly .. twisting the poppy. ack. Its all for a good cause so I just keep buying more!  I wish I could crochet though.  I would wear that.  It looks great.
  When my daughter was a little girl I would buy a bunch then hot glue them onto barettes let her wear them in her hair.  She looked so cute and I didnt have to deal with a pin or the loss of another poppy! ha ha!

I love this and would love to make one (for next year now!) but am a complete beginner - as in just learned to crochet a chain and single stitch off you tube yesterday!! What stitches would I need to learn to make this? I will still make my donation too!

That looks great.  We wear poppies for Rememberance here in Canada too, and I think I may need to make one for next year as I always lose mine.

That's beautiful.
I live in Ireland and tbh wearing the poppy is a bit frowned upon but I still wear it

I love it. In Canada we have these plastic-like poppies. The other day a few of us were talking about how bad they are environmentally speaking. This would be a great alternative.
