Learn how to crochet a poppy and leaf with my free step-by-step pattern and video tutorial. Whether you’d like to crochet your poppy broach for remembrance day or make these for a floral project. If you are making these for remembrance purposes, I think it is very important that we pay our respects to the service men and women of past, present and future. CLICK HERE if you’d like to make a donation to The Royal British Legion.

Our red poppy is a symbol of both Remembrance and hope for a peaceful future. Poppies are worn as a show of support for the Armed Forces community. The poppy is a well-known and well-established symbol, one that carries a wealth of history and meaning with it.
