Poppy brooch

Originally uploaded by kittyboo crochet

A little poppy brooch, made by me, using Rowan Cashsoft yarn. Here is the (very rough and ready) pattern using UK terms:

Make 2.
Ch 6. SS into 1st stitch to form a ring.
24 dc into ring.
DC into each DC, increasing every other stitch to get 36 stitches.
1 ch [1 dc 1 tr 7dbltr 1 tr 1dc 1ss] 3 times with last ss into 1st ch.
Fasten off.
Join the two pieces.

For the centre I really just made it up as I went along. It’s a bit hard to describe but I basically made lots of loops and tied them together (a bit like making a tassle) then cut off the tops and stitched into the centre of the poppy.

  1. Hi! I really like your poppy design 🙂

    But, I’m sort of confused, you mentioned you were using UK terms… so I looked up the UK equivalents to the american terms… and I’m more confused.

    for “1 ch [1 dc 1 tr 7dbltr 1 tr 1dc 1ss] 3 times with last ss into 1st ch.” do you mean… 1 chain [1 double crochet, 1 triple, 7 double triple, 1 triple, 1 double crochet, 1 slip stitch] 3 times with the last slip stitch into the 1st chain, in american terms?

    or do you mean like… treble instead of triple? I’m just really confused :p

    Thank you for your time!

  2. Hi,

    Thanks for your comment on my blog. The pattern in US terms should read as follows:

    (Using American crochet terms)

    Make 2.

    Ch 6. Slip stitch into first stitch to form a ring.

    24 single crochet into ring.

    Single crochet into each single crochet, increasing every other stitch to get 36 stitches.

    1 ch [1 single crochet, 1 double crochet, 7 treble, 1 double crochet 1 slip stitch] 3 times with last slip stitch into 1st ch.

    Fasten off.

    Join the two pieces.

    Hope that helps! I haven’t tested the pattern after making the brooch so if you have any probs, let me know and I’ll try to help.

    Thanks,

    Kittyboo
