amigurumi Thanksgiving turkeys
Created By: Christine Oszak
Pattern Source: other:

I decided to crochet the amigurumi Thanksgiving turkey for my 3 granddaughters using the free Lion Brand pattern and Vanna's Choice yarn. The kids love them!

The pattern was easy to follow once I figured out how to start - I'm a knitter and decoding the crochet instuctions was a challenge, but the LB online tutorials are very good. I'm a school bus driver so I have 15 minutes here and 20 minutes there just waiting, so I decided this was a good time to crochet. I finished the first 2 bodies and then made all the turkey parts (that took longer than expected). I wanted to see a finished turkey before making the last body so I assembled the first 2. I thought it was difficult to assemble after completing the body - hard to sew on the beak and wattle. So for the 3rd turkey, I assemled it top down as I crocheted. That worked well.

As with most of my big projects (3 small turkeys = 1 big project for me) I was glad it was over and say I won't do that again. But the kids loved them, especially since I had them poofing (our word for fraying) leftover yarn to stuff the last turkey. I already downloaded the reindeer amigurumi directions and bought the yarn, so I'll do it again with joy.
