How to crochet a Poppy Flower

The Poppy is one of my favorite flowers. The pattern for this Poppy is easy and you will have fun to make it.

I used for my Poppy Schachenmayr Bravo Acrylic Yarn with a 3.50 mm Hook.

for the Petals: Ruby
for the Center: Black
for the Stem: Fern

Flower Petals in Ruby Red:

Chain 6 with your red yarn. Insert your hook in your first chain you made and Slip Stitch to form a loop.

Round 1: chain 1, then work 5 times (1 sc and chain 5) in your loop, end your round with a Slip Stitch in your first sc you made

Round 2: make 1 Slip Stitch in your first little loop chain 4, then work 10 tr, chain 4 and 1 Slip Stitch, – you worked all this Stitches in your first loop and you have done your first Poppy Petal.
Now you have to repeat this pattern for the Poppy Petals 4 times till you have a total of 5 Petals.
(Slip Stitch in your next loop, chain 4, 10 tr, chain 4 ……)
End your round with a Slip Stitch.

    Great pattern – thanks. My beginners have asked me to teach them how to make a poppy, and so far they only know chain and double crochet (your single). If I use your petals, and maybe use felt for the leaves, that should be simple enough for them, and looks very effective – I love the look of those chain loops in the centre with the black showing through them!

        And that’s American terminology – in UK or Australian, it’s a double crochet. (And the “dc” is an American “double crochet”, triple everywhere else, etc. Basically, add one, if you’re anywhere other than America)
