Crochet Poppy Pattern

Poppies are one of my favorite flowers. I love their intense carmine red color! After picking up a poppy plant at the nursery, I decided to crochet a few that will last all year long.


To make these poppies I used a 2.75 mm crochet hook, red, black, and yellow worsted weight yarn, and a tapestry needle. The final result is a flower approximately the same size as a real poppy.

This pattern is written in US terms.

I’m going to make a few more flowers and create a flower crown! You could attach these poppies to anything your heart desires. I think they’d look pretty strung together as a garland.
