This simple crocheted flower is one of the basic crochet flower. It's come small and very quick makes. Naturally in two colours: heart in yellow and rest in purples or blues, it makes beautiful flower to decorate baby clothes, cushions, teddybears.
As also known as 'Blue Poppy', it is originally from Himalayas but widely common in europe. The flower is known to its ability to adjust itself and if necessary hybrid with other plants to survive. It is also called Welsh Poppy and is considered as weed. It is hard to grow from seed but in wild they seems to have great success on cultivating. Meconopsis comes in variety of colours of blue but also white, orange, red and purples.
For making these flowers I would recommend good quality merino or cotton wool. Virgin wool also would give nice strong petal.
