poppy leaf pattern

I don't often blog these days, but just posting a pattern which can be used if you are crocheting or knitting a poppy. You can find me on Instagram these days and my username is crazydazyknits. My account is now private due to an unwanted stalker but just request to follow. Only genuine followers please.
