Thankful Poppy Pattern

A quick single shuttle poppy pattern to share with you on this day of Remembrance.

36 red seed beads (i used delicas)
4 black seed beads
Size 20 thread in black
Size 20 thread in red (i used 671 Lizbeth Poppy red)
1 shuttle or needle

Add 4 black beads to thread.  Wind 2 yards (this maybe overkill but I just made the pattern lol) on shuttle cut thread.

R. 6 vsp 6
R. 2 pull up bead on core thread 2 pull up bead on core thread 2 +(onion ring join to vsp) 2 pull up bead on core thread 2 pull up bead on core thread 2
Change to red thread.  Put 4 yards on the shuttle with 36 beads.  Cut from ball thread.  Join to picot formed over bead.

*Put 3 beads on back of hand when forming ring
R 6. Close ring (beads will form the inside curve of ring
Make 3 rings*
Join to picot above next bead
Repeat from * to * around center to make 4 petals.
Hide ends.

If you are ambitious you can hide the ends with a single shuttle split ring at the back.  This will allow you to add a clip

Thank-you to all that serve and those supporting them.💟💟💟
