Crocheted Turkey Legs

Happy Monday everyone. Hope you all had a great weekend. Phoebe got lots of visitors again, maybe I should let her write more often.

As most of you know, we are having a giveaway for 2 catnip crochet turkey¬†legs and a wishbone ornament. 002If you haven’t commented yet, please do today or tomorrow. The winner will be announced Wednesday. Then we will do it again next week and the week after.

I am especially proud of the turkey legs because after 4 years of crocheting, I have made my own pattern. I am going to post it here and on Ravelry. If you don’t know about Ravelry, it is a great website for all patterns knit and crochet and most are free.

Here is the pattern: I use Sugar and Cream brand cotton yarn, but most yarns should work. You need white and tan or brown depending on how you like the turkey. Hook is size G/6-4.25mm

6 single crochet into 1st chain (6sc)

2 single crochet in each of the 6 sc ( 12sc)
