Here in Canada, today is Thanksgiving. I’m sure our smart neighbours to the south have heard an inkling of this before, but it pretty much lines up with Columbus Day and we do pretty similar things as Americans, like eat turkey and pie with our family and friends. We usually have to go to work the next day, so we don’t make it a big shopping holiday and it doesn’t kick off our Christmas season, but otherwise, it’s a pretty similar holiday.
So I have a little round up of some Thanksgiving themed patterns, and my friends to the south can start working on some projects in time for their own holiday.

First things first: turkey! In a pilgrim hat! Cute! Wouldn’t he make a fun first Thanksgiving gift for a new baby? Cute idea! Or he can sit on the
Here’s another fun and cartoony turkey crochet pattern to make up for the holidays! Wouldn’t he make an impressive decoration to discuss over pie? What a fun character! While you’re there, you should definitely check out the other fun and cartoon-like amigurumi patterns in the IlDikko shop: So many fun patterns!
Or maybe you’d rather wear a silly turkey hat for Thanksgiving? Maybe you have a bit of a goofball in your life that would just love to greet all your Thanksgiving guests wearing a crocheted cooked turkey beanie? You can totally make one of those. Hilarious.
Of course, it wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without pumpkins! Check out these adorable hand-crocheted pumpkins with little cinnamon stick stems to add a homey cinnamon smell to your Thanksgiving table! These ones are made to order for you (super hand if you don’t have time to crochet!), but if you’d prefer to make your own, there are plenty of patterns for knit pumpkins here. And some more for crocheted pumpkins here.
I don’t know what it is about play food (especially if they have faces!), but I just think it’s the cutest thing! Maybe it takes me back to childhood and wanting to play kitchen and loving kindergarten where there was a play kitchen, but I couldn’t pass by this sweet pumpkin pie amigurumi pattern! So adorable!
How about decorating for Thanksgiving with this Oak Leaf and Acorn Garland? This little project could easily be carried in your crochet bag or purse for a travelling project and then hung up near the Thanksgiving table to add to the festive spirit!
Happy Thanksgiving! I hope all my fellow Canadians are having a great holiday with their family. We are making turkey soup and relaxing today, as we had our big dinner yesterday. And to my American friends, you have plenty of time to make up some cute Thanksgiving Themed patterns before your big holiday, so get to work!
