This pattern is for a beautiful knitted poppy fascinator which will bring a vintage touch to any outfit. Perfect for any seasonal parties you may have coming up, it looks as good in winter as in summer.
Wear the poppy down low on the side of your head for a Mediterranean feel, or with the veiling over your eyes for a retro look.
This fascinator can be completed in a few hours so you can easily make it in an evening. As it only uses knit and purl stitches and with no need to cast off then beginner knitters can enjoy making it too.
Wear it to a wedding or a party, dressed up with heels or dressed down with your Chucks. And how about getting a few friends together to make one each for a fun hen party activity?
If a fascinator isn't your style then why not make up the flower to wear as a brooch to go on your jacket or bag?
This is a versatile and beautiful project which you will find many uses for. I hope you enjoy making and wearing it as much as I enjoyed designing it!
Gauge is not specific on this pattern. If you are substituting the yarn then use a suitable size needle. Remember that this may alter the size of your final poppy.
