I've done a fair bit of crochet in the past, baby blankets, shawls, a little bit of Irish crochet, but not for quite a few years now. But on the internet I came across a rather attractive Remembrance Poppy design. The only thing was I didn't think the leaf was very poppy-ish so I looked further for other leaf shapes.
Anyway, I combined the two and had a go, only I haven't got a great stash of yarn so these were the least awful colours I could come up with
One of the petals is actually too small, I missed out two double (treble) crochets, but that can be remedied in the next version! (I've got several more leaf shapes to try out too)
