This Poppy Knitted Flowers Pattern is a fun quick-knit. These sweet blossoms can be used as accessory embellishments on headbands, hats, pretty much anything you want to make cute. Knit up Poppy Remembrance Flowers to honor Veterans throughout the world.
Begin by knitting four petal shapes in the basic Garter Stitch, then attach them to form your flower. Embellish by embroidering poppy seeds and the middle stamen finish it up. You may switch up your colors to resemble other knitted flowers, too!
