It is suggested that poppies are dropped off at least 2 weeks before they are needed as it takes quite a while to wire them up for pushing them into the ground and actually 'planting' them.
100 g ball of red wool - I bought mine from Home Bargains which cost 99p and should make about 12 poppies. Number 4mm needles - or old number 8 (also Poundland 3 balls of 50g for £2).
Cast on 60 stitches and work rows 1 - 8 in K2 P2 across row
Row 9 - K2 tog across row - 30 stitches
Row 10 Slip 1 stitch, K2 together and pass slip stitch over - do this across row - 10 stitches
Cut yarn - leave a tail to thread back through remaining stitches, pull tight, fasten off and stitch up seam.
Pull to fatten slightly - sew on black button or stick on black sticky felt in the centre.
