Make your poppy flower in nearly no time!
Skip the inner petals if really pressed.
I used a dk yarn and artificial anthers but feel free to experiment with embroidery, seed beads…
Notions: dk yarn, corresponding crochet hook (I used size 3mm), safety pin, any anthers you can think of.
Wrap the yarn around your little finger tree times to create a base ring.
Sc 14 times, join. Ch 2.
If you make both the outer and the inner petals, work the outer petals into the outer leg of the stitch (they are worked first) and the inner ones – into the inner leg of the stitch.
Outer petals: dc 1, dc 2 into one st, dc 1, dc 2 into one st, dc 1, ch 1, sl st. Repeat for the second petal. Ch 2 (skip and bind off if not making the inner petals.)
Inner petals: dc 2 into one st, dc 1, ch 1, sl st. Ch 2, dc 1, dc 2 into one st, dc 1, dc 2 into one st, dc 1, ch 1, sl st. Ch 2, dc 1, dc 2 into one st, ch 1, sl st. Bind off.
Make the anthers, attach the pin – that’s it!
