Always have poppies on display either in a vase or in your garden.
I have added the poppies to a container in my garden which is growing ornamental grasses. The poppies look “at home” with the grasses and are completely happy in the outdoors. If you decide to add your poppies to a vase, it may be nice to have some greenery so I have included a pattern for leaves.
Double Knitting Yarn
1 – 100 gram ball of Red
Small amount of black for the centre of the poppies
1 – 50 gram ball of Green for the leaves and centre of the poppies
1 pair of 3¼ mm (UK10 – US3)
1 pair of 5 mm (UK6 – US8) and 2 double ended needles of the same size for the I-cord on the leaves
Floristry Wire or 2 m of 1 mm green wire from the hardware store/garden centre
