For Australians, ANZAC Day has special significance. It’s at Gallipoli that we found our national identity. We wear the poppy on this day each year to honour the sacrifice made by those who have served in our military in times of war.

This cowl is my way of wearing the poppy during the often chilly dawn service. It is relatively quick and easy to make with the start of the poppy and the positioning of the button the only bits that need a bit of patience. The ‘stamen’ of the poppy forms a ‘button’ that holds the cowl closed.
