Mr. Turkey

(4) Name: 'Crocheting : Mr. Turkey
Mr. Turkey Mr. Turkey

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You need to know how to increase and decrease and how to join with a needle and thread.

Pattern Description:

I couldn't find a pattern I liked. So, I found some turkey pictures and made my own. It is easy, a little whimiscal and you can make it in any color you want. Its great for a table decoration or a bookcase decoration around Thanksgiving or just as a fall decoration. If you want a smaller Turkey, use a smaller hook and a lighter weight yarn. Just have fun. I am thinking about making a pink camo Turkey just for the heck of it.

Gauge:

There really isn't any gauge to follow for this pattern. Just make sure your stuffing does not show through. Try crocheting a couple of rows and press some stuffing under the rounds. If you can see it through the front, you need to crochet a little tighter or switch to a smaller hook.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 10-12 Inches while sitting. From bottom to top of head.

Materials:

  • Size G Crochet Hook
  • Locking Stitch Markers
  • Polyfill
  • Yarn Needle
  • Two 12-mm safety eyes
  • 1 skein of Light Brown (for wings, body and neck)
  • A small amount of Dark Brown (for his beak)
  • A small amount of Red (for his wattle)
  • 1/2 skein of orange for legs and toes
  • Small amounts of whatever colors you want to use for the feathers. I used leftovers.

You Will Also Need:

  • One 3 inch felt top hat and a small amout of white ribbion for the trim.

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

I like Red Heart Classic.
