crochet along............................

I am joining in with Marianne and Chrissie's crochet along and have hooked some Poppies for my friends and family.

I saw the idea on Clare's lovely blog she has made a beautiful Poppy for her sister and kindly added the link for the pattern which can be found here.

 As you know I'm not good a making just one of anything so I hope you like my little collection.

I didn't have any DK yarn so made do with Chunky weight I used a small 3.5mm hook to make it quite dense and I am pleased with the results.

Instead of a button in the middle I adapted the pattern and made my own centre. With shimmery black yarn I chained 4, joined with a slip stitch and then hooked 12 trebles into the middle with a slip stitch to finish. On the back of the Poppy I have handstitched a little brooch back, I forgot to take a photo of this stage - sorry.

It feels funny not joining in with Yarn along as well this week but Ginny had more important things to think about, her new baby boy was born on Tuesday, for a little glimpse pop over here
