What you need to know

Our knitting pattern for poppies is a lovely way to do your bit for Remembrance.

This easy knit poppy pattern is available to download now. Every year, many people wear a Remembrance poppy to commemorate those who have fallen in conflicts around the world. This campaign was started in 1921 by the Royal British Legion. Designer Adrienne Chandler has given you special permission to sell your finished poppies to raise money for the charity or you could knit lots to create your own knitted poppy wreath or postbox topper for your community. We can even teach you how to knit a poppy with our step-by-step video guide!
