Pattern Description:

The Turkey is part of my Shelf Sitters Collection.

The Shelf Sitters never stay in one place for long here though. My kids are just too fascinated by them and love to play with them. :)

Easy and fast to crochet, and a real eye-catcher on every shelf. The perfect present, birthday gift or just for fun. :)

With this pattern you can crochet several Turkeys. Depending on where you position the head on the body, a new Turkey comes to life. Make a whole flock of them for next Thanksgiving. :)
