We work hard here at Wicked Chickens Yarn to practice an attitude of gratitude every day, so Thanksgiving is a favorite holiday for us! We felt that there is significantly too few Thanksgiving-themed knitting projects out there, and we want to remedy that with a knitted pocket Thanksgiving Turkey! So here he is (we call the little one Tom and the bigger one Ted). We hope you agree there needs to be way more knitted turkeys in the world!
These grateful little turkeys are perfect to give as gifts, or to use for decorating your house. Think of how cute it would be if each of your guests had a turkey holding their name on their plate at your Thanksgiving table! Our Pocket Turkey kit comes packaged in a darling cupcake box complete with a handle on top, and would make a delightful gift for your knitting friend, too. Plus this is a quick and fun knit and you will find yourself making a whole house full of little knitted turkey friends! You can also use the pattern to make multiple sizes of turkey depending on what weight yarn you use, as illustrated in the last photo. We know, you didn't think this kit could get any better, but it totally did once you found out you could knit all kinds of sizes of turkeys. That "Buy Now" button is right there up to your right...
This kit is packed with pure awesomeness and includes the materials you need to knit 2 small turkeys in the round:
Intermediate Knitting Pattern with a download code for the pdf version of the pattern
100% Wool Fingering Weight Yarn in 4 colors
Two sets of 6mm safety eyes
All you will need to complete your Thanksgiving friend is a US Size 1 (2.25 mm) circular needle, a tapestry needle, 12 removable stitch markers, and scissors! If you are a tighter knitter you might be more comfortable using US Size 2 (2.75mm) needles instead. Please note we do offer that you can add a set of stitch markers in a small tin to your kit for only $6. These markers are perfect for our small fingering kits! It includes 24 removable markers and 4 closed, snag-free shaped markers for the beginning of the round all in a cute little tin. You can see the tin of markers listing here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/611982215/wicked-chickens-yarn-stitch-marker-set?ref=shop_home_active_1
Finished turkeys are approximately 3.5" tall.
The kit will come complete with a printed version of the pattern, but there will also be a download code on your pattern for the pdf version of the pattern. The download is through Ravelry.com, but you do not need a Ravelry account to download the pattern. The pattern is designed by author and designer Rebecca Danger, known for her whimsical monster and creature knitting patterns.
