Thanksgiving Turkey Crochet Pattern

Happy Saturday! Since today is the Saturday of (Canadian) Thanksgiving weekend, I’m sharing something a little different: A Thanksgiving Turkey Crochet Pattern!

This pattern is super cute and would make a perfect centerpiece for your Thanksgiving Dinner. If you live in the U.S. or somewhere else where Thanksgiving is celebrated at a later date, you can save this pattern and make it in November!
