This poppy pattern is a blend of a few different patterns used for the Great Lakes 5000 Poppies Project. While knitting your own re-usable poppy can be both meaningful and sustainable, it is important to remember that the poppy drive is a fundraiser for the Legion and a donation should still be made.

Please do not sell this pattern unless profits are directly being donated to The Royal Canadian (Or British) Legion (

o 1 ball of red worsted weight yarn (You definitely do not need a full ball for this pattern! Scraps work.)
o 3.75mm knitting needles
o Black buttons (I used 18mm buttons, but slightly larger ones would also work)
o Brooch backs
o A sewing needle
