This year Deramores have partnered with the Royal British Legion to bring crochet and knitting communities together to raise money for the poppy appeal – and I felt quite honoured to be asked to design a crochet poppy pattern for them.
The red poppy is a symbol of both remembrance and hope for a peaceful future.
Poppies are usually worn as a show of support for the Armed Forces community and for this project I wanted to create a simple design where you could easily produce a whole field of poppies in no time at all.
If you are a crafter you can help support The Royal British Legion this year by creating any one of the endorsed Deramores poppy digital patterns or kits.
With every purchase of a poppy kit, Deramores will donate 10% of the RRP to the Royal British Legion to support the Armed Forces community, and for the purchase of any digital poppy patterns, they will donate 50% of the RRP.
Did you know there’s actually no wrong way to wear a poppy, you could glue gun them to a headband, wreath, blanket or cushion, or just add a brooch pin, to honour and remember the service and the sacrifice of those within the Armed Forces.
For my poppies I used Deramores Studio DK in Ebony, Ruby and Peridot, with a 3mm hook, and with 1 ball of Ruby you can easily make about 20 poppies.
❤️ You can download the digital poppy patterns or purchase the kits here ❤️
Please share pictures of your poppies with on socials using the hashtag #DeramoresPoppy and #kcacouk so we can share your wonderful work.
And if you were looking for more poppy designs I also have a free one on the blog here.
Until next time folks! Happy hooking, keep calm and crochet on my friends xx
