I have had many people ask for the pattern to my Poppy pin. This is the first time in about 6 years that I have posted a pattern due to people stealing my creations. Pleas Please Please respect the copyright on this pattern. Give me credit if you sell them. Thanks, Lori


Veterans Poppy Pin Pattern

Supplies:

Small amount of brown thread for center. (you could also use black)
Small amount of red for petals. (Orange could work also)
1 Small safety pin
I used a size 6 steel crochet hook, use what you are comfortable with since there is no gauge. The pin is about 5 inches when it lays flat.

Center:
ch 6 sl st to close ring. ch 2 11 hdc in ring to make total of 12 hdc. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Petal:
1. ch 7 hdc in 3rd ch from hook. continue across (5 hdc) ch 3 turn
2. dc in base of ch 3, 1 dc in next st 2 dc n next repeat across ending with 2 dc in last st. ch 3 turn
3. repeat row 2 ending with ch 3 turn
4. increase 1 st at beginning of this row and end with 2 dc in last stitch. 1 dc in all other st across. ch 3 turn
5. work 1 dc over first 2 st, 2 dc over next 2, 2 decrease clusters over next 4 st, 2 dc in next 2 st. end with 1 decrease over last 2 st, ch 3 turn.
Noter: at this point the petal should start to cup slightly...
6. work 1 decrease over first 2 st, 1 dc in next st. repeat this pattern across. DO NOT CHAIN, turn
7. in first dc draw up a loop keep this on hook. do this in all dc across. at end of row yo and pull through all loops and fasten off. weave in all ends.

You will need 5 of these petals.

Half Petal:
1. ch 5 work hdc in 3rd ch from hook across. (3hdc) ch3 turn
2. dc in base of ch 3, 1 dc in next 2 st, ch 3 turn (4 st)
3. dc in first 2 st (3 dc) increase in last st, ch 3 turn
4. 1 dc in base of ch 3, 1 dc in top of next st, 2 dc in next st, 2 dc over next 2 dc ch 3 turn
5. work 2 dc over first 2 dc (ch 3 counts as first dc, decrease over next 2 st. 1 dc in next st and decrease over last 2 dc ch 3 turn
6. work 1 decrease , 1 dc, 1 decrease at end of row. DO NOT CHAIN, turn.
7. n first dc draw up a loop keep this on hook. do this in all dc across. at end of row yo and pull through all loops and fasten off. weave in all ends.

You will need 1 of these half petals.

Assembly: with either red or brown (it is going to be on the underside so it doesn't matter) sew 3 petals on the back of the brown disc. The brown needs to be raised and in front of all petals. In the spaces left sew on the remaining petals ad half petal. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Shaping: Most of the petals should cup toward the center of the flower, however one or two from the back row should be turned back.

Using safety pin fasten on clothing and get compliments.

Hope you enjoy this pattern. I have many others that I have designed over the 38 years I have been crocheting.
