Where I live 2014 seems to have been an excellent year for poppies, I’ve spotted them everywhere, from grass verges, to corn fields, to tiny crevices in the walls along my road. Having been surrounded by poppies throughout the summer I wanted something to remind me of these bright and cheerful flowers during the colder months.
Knit this hat in any colour to cover your head in bright blooms, perfect for when the weather is looking rather grey.
