Hi, thought I could make some knitted or crocheted poppies for Remembrance Day. Any donations would go to the British Legion. Had anyone done this? It seemed like a good idea as I have spare red and black wool already.

BBC Nottingham have a web page with free poppy patterns to knit or crochet.
The crochet ones actually look more like the usual November poppies.

mrsmopp do you have a pattern? I can pm you one if not - £2 to the British Legion if you sell them, I think.

Hi well I've had a go at making a simple one without a pattern, but I'd really like to do this properly, so, yes please if you could pm it that would be great, cheers! Thx.

I have bought a white crochet poppy from ebay, but only 50% of the profit goes to RBL.
Would you consider doing both red and white ones? I think the design looks good.

icy and me, please smile! I'd be very grateful to have the pattern.

yes, knitted using the British Legion pattern, that's available on line. Easy to knit, and they look great.

I have tried to attach a file in a pm, but can't work out how. The RBL version is here

I don't think you can attach files to a PM. They are not quite like ordinary emails.

Here's the RBL poppy pattern I posted a link on another thread for it already.
