I hope you have been enjoying the weather and that some of you have had the chance to crochet yourself some flowers for your hi top shoes. As promised I have another freebie for you this week.
To make Poppy, you will need:
3mm crochet hook, 4ply cotton yarn and two 2.5cm buttons, sewing needle and thread.
Finished measurement – 5.5cm diameter
Start hookin’ here….
Using 3mm hook and 4ply yarn, Ch10, join into a ring with a sl st into first ch.
Round 1: Ch1, 15dc into ring, close with a sl st to beg ch1
Round 2: Ch4, *1tr into next dc, ch1; rep from * 15 times, sl st into fourth ch of beg ch4
Round 3: Ch1, *1dc into ch1 space, 1dc into top of tr; rep from * 15 times, ch1, sl st into top of beg ch1.
Fasten off, darn in ends and block if desired. Simply pop over the button to secure onto the shoe.
