Crochet Poppy Flower Pattern

Poppies are a widely recognised symbol of remembrance and with Anzac day coming up, the timing of this crochet poppy pattern couldn’t be more perfect.

A red crochet poppy being held up with 2 red crochet poppies in the background.

Anzac Day (25th April) marks the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War and is a day of remembrance for those who have served and died.

Anzac stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.

2 red crochet poppies and 1 pink crochet poppy.

This crochet poppy pattern is perfect for brooches, decorations or embellishing other projects. You could even stop after R3 for a smaller remembrance style poppy.

How Do You Crochet a Poppy?

This crochet poppy pattern is worked from the centre out in joined rounds using a variety of different stitches.

The mini berry stitch gives the centre some beautiful texture and the layered petals add dimension.

We’ll be utilising both the front loops and back loops of R2 so there is no need to sew anything together.

3 red crochet poppies.
