Crochet Poppy

Here is my first (complete) attempt at a crochet poppy. What with the time of year and all that I was looking for something a little more special and substantial than the usual fare. I found a free pattern on the web and ... Voila, a poppy. It's a little on the big side (nice play on words) because I used a 3mm hook with double knit yarn, my next attempt will be with cotton on a 2.5mm hook, we shall see how it turns out. If they are good enough I aim to sell them to some unsuspecting souls and give the money to the poppy appeal. Beats buying one of those paper jobs :D
