Please visit Emma Leith’s Atelier, the original designer; she has much to share with you!
Correction: I made a mistake in the original post, attributing the amazing Maple Shrug to Emma Leith; it was actually Emma Varnam who designed the shrug for Stylecraft’s 2017 BlogTour. Mu apologies to both Emmas; I really must stop working into the wee hours . . .
Emma Leith was very kind and gave me permission to use her original Remembrance Poppy design by Emma Leith as a starting place for my 3 colour Peace Poppies. If you wish to make a traditional red poppy for Remembrance Day, I can highly recommend this pattern. It’s very clear and easy to follow.
You can make a large number of these poppies and join them at the centres of the petals to form a scarf or even a wrap. I had this in mind in the beginning, but not enough time to complete a scarf before Remembrance Day. To make a scarf or wrap I would use yarn to join the poppies, then weave in the ends with a yarn needle. You may have a better idea . . .
I have nearly completed a Peace Poppy Scarf that incorporates some of these poppies as embellishments, but now I’m going to see if adding a fifth round will enhance it or not . . . Once I’ve decided, completed the scarf, photographed it and written up the pattern, I will be offering the pattern for free here and on Ravelry, where the Sing Me to Sheep shop is now open.
Wherever you live, I wish you good weather, good friends and much joy in your creative efforts. Thanks for visiting here. ~ Linne
Sneak preview of part of one of my creations. Nearly finished and then I need to write up a pattern for making it. Easy, I promise you, and so, SO useful! Until next time, then . . .
