There were twelve poppies like this:
Ten were made using King Cole Anti-tickle Merino 4ply ~ scarlet, linden and black. The remaining two were made using a 4ply thickness glitter yarn.
2mm (old UK size 14) needles were used for both versions of the poppy, including the leaves. The pattern for the poppy can be found here: https://5000poppies.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/fayes-knitted-5000-poppies-pattern1.pdf.
The leaves were made in garter stitch using a 4ply thickness shiny cord-type yarn from my stash. This yarn reached me without a ball band. I cannot remember whether it was a charity shop buy or gifted to me but the intention was always to use it for Good Causes.
And there were fourteen poppies like this:
Twelve were made using red Knitting Essentials double knitting (DK) yarn for the petals and green for the leaves. The centres were knitted using black Hatfield Bonus DK.
The remaining two were made using Pink Sparkle Knitting Essentials double knitting (DK) yarn for the petals and black Hayfield Bonus DK for the centres.
The leaves were made using Torpedo Telstar Acrylic Double Crepe colour Jungle Glint (dark green).
4mm (old UK size 8) needles were used for both versions of the poppy, including the leaves. The pattern for the poppy can be found here: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/knit-flat-no-sew-poppy.
The pattern for the leaf was one that I had devised myself. The same pattern was used for all 26 poppies, using the yarn thickness and the needle size to suit the yarn. The pattern for the leaf can be found here: https://paulineknit.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/more-knitted-poppies.html.
When I know how much money was raised the amount will be added to this post as an edit.
