Posted by on Aug 3, 2014 in Crocheting, Knitting | Comments


It’s once again time for our flower of the month! For August, we’re bringing you the best of our poppy knitting and crochet patterns.

Poppies are most famous for their scene in The Wizard of Oz, causing Dorothy to fall into a deep slumber. Luckily these poppy knitting and crochet patterns won’t put you to sleep. From mittens to pillows, there’s a poppy for every skill level of knitter and crocheter.

Whether you’re stitching your poppies by hook or by needle, add one of Craftsy’s poppy knitting and crochet patterns to your to-craft list today!

Poppy Flower

Check out that pile of poppies. What could you do with them? There are so many ways to use poppies as an embellishment, including stitching them together to make a brooch that pins to just about anything.

Poppy Clutch

I’m always on the hunt for a good bag pattern, and I love this one because it’s crocheted with super-bulky yarn that works up quickly. The poppies can be placed wherever you’d like. If you can’t decide where to place them, add pins to back of each flower and just move them around whenever you feel inspired.

Knitted Poppies

Poppies for your needles? We’ve got those, too! Cast one of these poppies onto your needles.

Poppy Headband

You can knit this headband for anyone; all you need to do is lengthen or shorten the band to fit the wearer. You’ll need to know some basic increases and decreases (Stefanie Japel’s Knit Lab class can help you with those if you need guidance), but otherwise the headband is a breeze to knit.

Poppy Pillow

Poppies aren’t just for accessories. They also give a nice little pop of color to your home decor! This colorful poppy pillow sleeve buttons and unbuttons for easy removal, so you don’t have to worry about spills or stains. And you’ll definitely want to check out the cute little poppies on the back of the pillow, too.

Poppy Field Shawl

This shawl can be knit from any weight of yarn; just keep in mind that the outcome will be different depending on which weight you use. A lacy-weight yarn, for instance, will have a lot of drape and be more flowing. The worsted-weight version, pictured here, will offer a bit more warmth.

Poppy Fields Socks

You’ll have to look closely to see the poppies on this sock. Designer TheSexyKnitter made the pattern so that once you’ve started knitting the stems, you can make your poppies as tall or short as you’d like. You can also add leaves to any stem you want. No two socks will look the same — unless you want them to, of course.

Not familiar with knitting socks? If you get stuck on this pair that’s knit from the toe up, check out Knit Original Toe-Up Socks with Donna Druchunas for guidance and plenty of practice with toe-up socks before you tackle the Poppy Field Socks.
