Remembrance Poppy, free pattern

My Thursday craft group is making poppies for the local RSL display for the 100th year anniversary of Gallipoli. This is the poppy I made, I made up the pattern and I'd like to share it here. I used a 4mm hook and 8 ply acrylic yarn in both black and red. We're handing in the poppies very soon so they can do up the display.
