This is so precious! An amigurumi doll dressed as a turkey...just in time for Thanksgiving. I wonder if his mom lets him wear his costume at the table. Make your own with this free pattern! #amigurumi #thanksgivingcrochet #freecrochetpattern #dressup #amigurumidoll #belacrochets #30daysofcozy #turkeycrochetpattern

It’s Day 3 of the 30 Days of Cozy. Today’s pattern comes from Bethany Pratt of Bela Crochets. Here’s what she has to say about this dressed-up turkey amigurumi crochet pattern:

Toby the Turkey isn’t really a turkey which is good news for him because November is a very dangerous time to be a turkey! Toby is just a boy who figured some people love to dress up for Halloween and some like to get dolled up for Christmas so he decided he would dress up for Thanksgiving.

Toby is the second friend in my Kiddos in Costume series (Here’s number one, Henry the Halloween Cat). I hope to release a new friend at the beginning of each month and they will be themed whenever possible. Are they stuffed animals? Are they dolls? It’s hard to say, but one thing is for sure, they are adorable!

Ch1, turn to side and work into the front side of your ch opposite the stitches you just made. Sl st into same st as ch1, sc next 3, hdc next 6, dc next 3, 2dc in each of the next 2 stitches, sl st to the ch where you places your stitch marker.

Fasten off, weave in ends

Assembling the tail:

For the tail I layered my three gold feathers together with one in the center and two to either side. I cut a long length of gold yarn and used this to sew the feathers in place. I then arrange one red and one green feather into the space between each of the gold feathers and sewed them into place. I then sewed the entire tail to Toby.

Congratulations! You have just finished making your super cute Toby the Turkey!
