Last October I ran out of time to post about several fall designs that had been published in Crochet World – so I thought I would share about them this year while there’s still time to make a few small things for your Thanksgiving table.
The Crayon Gobbler – A fun turkey decoration that is not only pretty but also practical – each feather pocket can hold a crayon. I enjoyed ‘engineering’ this design and seeing it come together. The editors at Crochet World told me that it was a hit on Facebook last fall.
The Petaled Pumpkin – I crocheted all of the flowers with Omega’s Sinfonia cotton yarn and found a variety of buttons and beads at my local craft store to embellish the centers. Inside is hiding a styrofoam ball that helps the pumpkin keep its shape and stay light.
Turkey Napkin Ring – You can never have too many turkeys at Thanksgiving, right? This little guy is made to slide over your folded napkins. He would be even cuter if you gave him a felt T-shirt in the colors of your favorite football team!
Even though these patterns can be found in an issue from last year, you can still get them digitally by visiting www.crochet-world.com. For just $5.99 you can download the entire magazine directly to your computer and have 19 patterns instantly. Here is the direct link for your convenience:
