Hello crafters! This week’s post is a quick and easy project but it is still an important one! Poppy pins are commonly seen around November but wearing them year round would really be a good way to show support. These crocheted poppy pins are not only really beautiful but also a lot sturdier than the thin flimsy ones you will find in stores.
You can use this pattern to make just a few pins for yourself and your family or you can start making them in bulk to raise money. I plan to make as many as I can and sell them to raise money for Courageous Companions; a charity that provides veterans and first responders in need with certified support dogs 🙂 Let’s get started!
Supplies you will need to make your poppy pin
- Aunt Lydia’s Fashion 3 crochet thread in ‘Black‘
- Aunt Lydia’s Classic 10 crochet thread in ‘Cardinal Red‘
- 2.1 mm crochet hook
- Glue gun
Round 1 (black): Make a magic ring. Chain 2(counts as DC) Work 11 more DC into loop. Close magic ring.
Round 2 (red): Chain 2. 1dc into same stitch. *2dc in next stitch* Repeat from * to * around.
Round 3 (red): Chain 2. *2tc in next. 2tc in next. 2tc in next. 2 tc in next. 1 dc in next. 1dc in next.* rpt from *to* around.
Round 4 (red): Slip stitch into first tc stitch. Chain 2. Work 1dc in same stitch. Slip stitch between the 2 dc stitches from the previous round. Continue around working 2dc in each tc and a slip stitch between each set of double crochet stitches. Tie off.
Finishing off these pins is super simple! Just give each poppy a quick pass with the iron to make sure it is flat.
Attach a pin to the back of each poppy with a dab of hot glue. Let cool before using.
