The best way to have turkey for Thanksgiving is as a cuddly decoration.
Timmy and Tammy are the first of my Holiday Huggers. These crochet turkeys are about 7″ tall and perfectly sized to fit on the shelf or table for the most adorable Thanksgiving decor you have ever seen.
I consider these Holiday Huggers to be intermediate patterns but if you have made amigurumi before they should be no problem. Except for the tail, feet, and snood, the pieces are all worked in the round without joining. I highly recommend using a stitch marker to keep you from losing your place. The beaks are worked as ovals. While I tried my best to explain the process as clearly as possible you may find it beneficial to watch a video tutorial on crocheting ovals if you are not already familiar with it. The feathers on Tammy’s headband are worked similarly, crocheting along the back side of your chain first and then the front side.
These crochet turkey’s heads are closed while their bodies are left open for sewing together. I feel that this gives a cleaner look than joining two closed pieces together. If you like, you can attach the head when you stop to attach your eyes. The benefit to attaching the head at this point is that you will not pull up as much stuffing when sewing the pieces together and if you sew before attaching the eyes it will be easier to center them with Timmy and Tammy’s bodies. I myself have fallen victim to slightly off centered heads from being just one stitch off when sewing my pieces together. (Use your pins!)
