Knit a Poppy Pattern: wear your stitch on your sleeve for Rememberance Day

Posted by Deadly Knitshade on October 27, 2007

poppyIts that time of year again when Britain blooms in glorious reds in honour of our armed forces of past and present. There are poppies popping up all over the place, and Knitonthenet have come up with a woolly way to show your support, save a bit of paper (well only a tiny poppy-sized bit but you get the idea), and enjoy a bit of a knit too.

You can pop along to their site and donate £2 to the Poppy Appeal for their fabulous knitted poppy pattern (designed by Just Call Me Ruby, what a gal!)

You can bring your prized flower out year after year too, and just chuck a couple of quid in the donation bucket while saving those fundraisers a little on plastic and paper.

So get your needles out, purl yourself a poppy, and wear it with pride. 🙂
