Today’s Things are for Remembrance Day. Here in Holland I can’t buy Remembrance Day poppies so I crocheted them instead.
I found the pattern at Ravelry. I like it for its simplicity. It’s the closest I’ve seen to the poppies I always wore in Canada:
I used cotton and a 2mm hook, and attached each one to a small safety pin. They’re quick to make; the last one took just nine minutes, including attaching it to the pin. In the end I made a total of seven for friends and family.
