This field poppy is designed to be as realistic as possible, featuring long stitches replicating the delicate striations of the petals, slightly uneven edges to the petals and the characteristic cross of black in the centre.
This pattern is available in both UK and US crochet terminology. Both files will be available for you on purchase and you can choose whichever you prefer to use.
At a number of points in the pattern there are notes on how you can alter and customize the flower to your preferences, so that if you are making a group of them, each poppy will be individual, just like in nature.
Note that I would not suggest this as a beginner pattern - it contains some more unusual methods and stitches, including US triple / UK double-treble crochet, loop stitches and the 'magic' adjustable ring.
The pattern does of course come with my full support! If you have any difficulties, please contact me.

Little Conkers exists to help you get the most from your time and pennies - whether you're making something for yourself or as a gift - as a way of spreading the joy of creativity.
I know that, for many people, creativity is often fitted into the slivers of time that you can find between all the other "must dos" in your life. But you know that making something yourself means it can be exactly what you need, look exactly how you want and can give you untold pleasure day after day.
My sewing and crochet patterns are specifically designed with the time-strapped and frugal in mind, requiring no superfluous equipment and including practical suggestions on how to up-cycle materials wherever possible.
