Poppy Patterns for Remembrance Sunday

Sunday 8th November 2015 is Remembrance day in the UK and is also observed by other countries across the Commonwealth of Nations this month. Many of us will be donning poppies in memory of armed forces who died in the line of duty during the First World War. We’ve compiled a round up of poppy patterns  from some of our independent designers to make your own and re-wear every year!

    Would like any free patterns you have I belong to a church knit & knatter group and we make many different things for ourselves to use in church for local hospitals and charities ad well as items for Age U K. Would also like the poppy pattern crocheting and the green spray with poppies. Please advise my next move to receive these. Thanks

      Ravelry and Knitting Pattern Central are a good source for free patterns. We found them very useful when knitting for prem babies.

      You can use my crochet one for free. Just click You’ll find more on Pinterest and Ravelry But many of the ones on the blog above are very cheap – and the money for the pattern also goes to the British legion, so they benefit twice! To get the patterns on the blogpost above, you just click on the poppy you want and it takes you to a page where you can download if for a small donation.

    Christchurch U3A Knit and Natter group have been selling knit and crochet poppies on behalf of the Britiish Legion.

    If you wear a poppy year after year, don’t forget to make a donation as well!

    Great idea – especially as it allows us to recycle but, can I suggest that if we do wear our knitted/crocheted poppies next year we still pop some money into the collection tins?

    I know Remembrance Day was instituted after WWI, but I’ve always been told that it is to remember all the servicemen and -women who have died in our wars, not just those from the First World War. Is this wrong?
