It is November and it is time to get ready for Thanksgiving! To celebrate this American holiday I created this cute crochet Turkey applique.
This Turkey pattern is another addition to my heart-shaped patterns collection as its body is made in the shape of a heart.

This cute crochet Turkey would be perfect as a Thanksgiving decoration. Use different yarn weights and hook sizes to obtain different sizes for this crochet Turkey.
I’ve made my Turkey with worsted medium weight yarn. If you make it with crochet cotton sport weight #2 yarn, you will get a cute small crochet Turkey applique which you can use for the embellishment of various items.
Here are two turkeys made with different weight yarns.
