Crochet Pattern: Remember Me Poppy Baby Blanket Afghan

     Veterans and Remembrance Days were coming up soon and it got me thinking how can I incorporate the poppy flower in my next design in a way that is beautiful and decorative.

     This pattern is available in both Etsy Store and Ravelry Store in a large print, inexpensive, printable PDF file, with lots of pictures and step by step tutorial on how to crochet yours.

     The idea came to me one day when I was having coffee with mr.B downtown. This young woman sat at the table in front of us and she was wearing a beautiful black and white striped shirt with red flowers on it and I thought the combination looked fresh and modern and the idea of the Remember Me Poppy Baby Blanket was born.

Pin it for later

     I love the way this blanket turned out. The stitch combination used gives it texture and makes the blanket soft and warm. The poppy flowers on top give an extra layer of texture as the petals are not stitched to the blanket making it look like flowers in a field.

     But the pattern used did not create the straight lines I wanted between the white and black sections, so I had to add a row of single crochet stitches.

     For this pattern I used the 3 petal poppy pattern, I liked how each petal overlapped the next, but you can choose to use the 4 or 5 petal poppy pattern. Find the patterns HERE.

     This pattern is available in both Etsy Store and Ravelry Store only, grab your supplies and head over for the pattern.

Supplies Used

 - DK / light worsted yarn in bright red, black and white, Red Heart Baby Hugs Yarn has the perfect shade of red for the poppies. 

     I used a speckled black yarn in this project, but plain black will look just as good, if not better.

- crochet hook size 3.5mm and 4mm, I use this set for all my designs, the yarn doesn't get caught in them and the metal can be easily cleaned and polished with a little wax to make the yarn, especially wool blends, slide easier. 



This is how your blanket should look like once finished.

Happy Crocheting!
