Free Crochet Poppy Flower Pattern from Moara Crochet

Crochet Poppy Flower | Free Crochet Pattern

It is already week four of my free crochet flower challenge. Today I am sharing how to make a Crochet Poppy. I hope you had a wonderful Easter Weekend & managed to celebrate some Easter festivities with your family. I love Poppy flowers due to their delicate almost paper like petals, which always make me want to cup the flower in my hands. Poppies come in a variety of shapes & colours with the field Poppy holding a special meaning of ‘Remembrance’ for us from the UK. So you can choose to follow my crochet flower pattern to make a bunch of Icelandic pastel poppy flowers or a single red crochet Poppy to wear as a Remembrance pin for Armistice Day on November 11.

Peach Poppies

This is the FOURTH pattern in a series of FREE CROCHET FLOWER patterns I have & will be sharing with you as we all try to stay indoors with our loved ones through the coming days & weeks.

Crochet Poppy Flower Pattern by Moara Crochet

My free Crochet Poppy pattern is written below with a simple step by step written photo tutorial or if you prefer a video tutorial, I have also made a Youtube video.


  • 50 meters cotton yarn (or any yarn from your stash)
  • 15 meters cotton yarn in a contrasting colour
  • 5 meters of cotton yarn for the centre
  • 1 meter of contrasting cotton yarn
  • Smallest crochet hook to use with your yarn
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors
  • 20cm florist wire
  • Cutting pliers

Gauge: N/A. Use the smallest crochet hook you can with your chosen yarn to create tight stitches, this will help your petals keep the form & not flop.

Size: With my lace yarn & 1.75mm crochet hook my Crochet Poppy flower is 6cm in diameter.

Notes: The petals are worked individually then attached in sets of two. The Stamen & Stigma are made separately then sewn together. The wire will be attached next before the final assembly of all the pieces.

To help demonstrate this technique I have also made a crochet video showing how to make a crochet puff button.

Row 1: Ch4, sl st into the first chain to make a foundation circle.

Place as many sc stitches you can into the centre of the circle.

Crochet Button Row 1 - Moara Crochet

Now sc over the first row a sc, pushing your stitches back behind the circle to create a doughnut shape, continue all the way around, repeating sc over this second row if needed until your crochet centre hole if no longer visible. On average this will be about 50sc stitches. Fasten off & leave a long tail.

Using your contrasting yarn, thread 30cmof yarn onto a tapestry needle. Insert the needle from the underside (flat bottom) and wrap over the doughnut shape & inset again from the underside. Repeat this until you create your desired effect, I continued until I had 7 contrasting lines over my button. Fasten off & weave in your ends.
