Crochet Turkey Gnome - Free Crochet Pattern - Crochet Cloudberry

Thanksgiving Turkey Gnome

Thanksgiving is not a holiday that we usually celebrate in the UK, but last year I was lucky enough to celebrate it with my sister and her family who live in America. It was wonderful to be part of a traditional American celebration and enjoy turkey, sweet potatos and the famous pumpkin pie. I was also amazed by all the Thanksgiving decorations both in the stores and that we made at home. And so this year, I am going to give our English home some Thanksgiving decorations, starting with this little Turkey cork gnome.

If you make this Turkey gnome, I would love to see it so why not tag me on Instagram using #Crochetcloudberry ?
