It’s the 100 year anniversary of WWI in August, and I’m getting busy knitting poppies! Ginger Twist Studio has teamed up with Knitting for Victory to raise awareness in commemorating this event, as well as raise funds. Hand knit poppies, as well as exclusive poppy making kits will be available in the shop for a suggested donation. The kits are great for those just starting out, and make great little gifts too!
For those of you who are ready to get started, here is the pattern that has been released on the Facebook page. Get involved & knit those poppies!
Using 4mm needles cast on 40 stitches in red
Knit 4 rows in knit 1, purl 1 rib
Change to black, purl 1 row,

Purl 2tog across the row
Cut yarn and thread the yarn through the remaining stitches and tighten and secure.
Sew up the side of the poppy.
Please send us your hand knitted poppies to have available in the shop for sale/donation. All proceeds go directly to the Royal British Legion.
