Learn how to crochet a turkey that has a dual purpose! Dress up your place settings this Thanksgiving with the Lets Talk Turkey Crochet Silverware Holder. This adorable project is a wonderful way to greet guests ready to sit down to the best meal of the year. This pattern is composed of several basic shapes like a hexagon motif and vividly colorful ovals to make the feathers. If you decide you don't want to make them for every place setting, crochet a few to decorate the table, or you can even turn them into wall decorations! Get in the mood for Thanksgiving with a turkey crochet pattern like this one.

Notes:

1. Head and body are worked in continuous (spiral) rounds. Do not join at end of round unless stated otherwise. Place marker for beginning of round and move marker up as each round is completed.

I think this is so cute. My three year old granddaughter as well as my 86 year old mother would like it. I think I will save this for a project to have ready for next Thanksgiving. That's one of the great things about this site, I can save projects for the future. I like to pin them too. These would be really cute to make and sell at a craft fair too, Do you agree?

absolutely adorable pattern!

It was an easy pattern to follow Very cute. I would reccmend this pattern.

I knitted a couple of turkey dishcloths.

I have crocheted Turkey placemats and Turkey dish cloths. This Turkey Silverware Holder will fit right in with these.

Never that I remember, don't expect to in the future, either. But I love the imagination shown in this project. And the chance to win goodies!

I have never crafted for thanksgiving but these turkeys are a good start.

I like to make decorations for wine bottles that I gift. These include bright leaves, dried hydrangeas, cedar boughs and small twigs. My friends all love these small natural arrangements.
