Small Crochet Poppy with Petals

DK or Worsted weight yarn in red, scraps of green and black.
3.0 or 3.5mm hook depending on yarn weight (size down, as we want poppy fabric to be tight)

start with center, in green:

make a slip ring (“magic loop” crochet) and ch3, then 11 triple crochet into center of ring. Slip st into top of chain sts to close. This makes a little cone-line object; pop it “out”. Break yarn. Join red.

Round 1: ch 3, 1 triple crochet into first st, then 2 triple crochet into each following st. Slip st into top of chain sts to close.

Round 2: Ch2, 1 double in next st. Repeat: [1 triple in nex st, 2 triples in next st, 1 triple in next st, 2 triples in next st, 1 double and 1 sc in next st, 1 double and 1 sc in next st] 3 times. Over last 5 sts: 1 triple in nex st, 2 triples in next st, 1 triple in next st, 2 triples in next st, 1 double and 1 sc in next st, slip st to beginning of round to close.

Make 12 strands of black yarn about 4 inches long (wind yarn around your hand a dozen times and cut). Fold each strand in half and using the crochet hook make a slipknot fringe around the green center. Trim ends to desired length.
