Wear your poppy with pride

Based on the downloadable pattern from Knitonthenet in aid of The Royal British Legion, I wanted something smaller than the original design, so I adapted the number of stitches and rows, and didn't 'stuff' the black centre as I prefered it flatter.

I wore it to work today and received many nice comments (and several quizzical looks from the youngsters). With the exception of scarves this is the first time I have been brave enough to wear one of my 'creations'.

Great poppy and great sentiment

That's lovely and so much better than the paper ones which get thrown away every year. I love those comfort dolls in the previous posts as I'm sure their recipients will.
