We are on our way to Turkey Trot Crochet 2020 – Day 4! Time to use those pieces you made on day ! 🙂
Where to post questions and progress pictures?
In the Marly’s Minions Group on Facebook (if you haven’t joined yet, do that now >> click here << ) there will be a dedicated thread for each day. I pin those threads in ANNOUNCEMENTS so you can easily find them.
POST YOUR QUESTIONS IN THE APPROPRIATE THREAD FOR THE DAYS CLUE YOU ARE WORKING ON!
This is very important. The testers will be checking these threads to help answer questions and it really helps them if we keep the questions for each day in the appropriate thread. I hope that makes sense. Also, the testers can be easily identified by their fb image. Each one is using a picture like this:
WE LOVE TO SEE YOUR PROGRESS!
As you finish the clue for each day (no matter if it is 3 days later) post a picture of your progress in the progress thread for the day you are working on. It really inspires all of us. Plus, it is fun to see all the different yarns getting used!
Okay, now here is your clue
Below, you will find everything you should need for this Crochet Turkey Trot 2020 – Day 4 Clue! Make a note that each day there might be additional information after materials.
🍀 Good Luck 🦃
Crochet Turkey Trot 2020
To Fit Sizes
*the smaller of the two sizes is more of a one size fits all, and the larger size is a little bit larger
S-XL — 20.5” x 65″ (52.1 x 165.1 cm)
2XL-5XL — 24” x 71.5” (61 x 181.6 cm)
15 linked dc = 4” (10 cm); 14.5 sts x 10 rows in ribbing pattern = 4 x 3″ (10 x 7.6 cm); 3 shells x 8 rows in shells stitch pattern= 5.125 x 3.25” (13 x 8.3 cm), CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.
- The amounts are an estimated amount (because I don’t know what yarn YOU are using) so to make sure you have enough for the project, have at least the yardage listed for the size you are making
- Size S-XL: 1500 yds
- Size 2XL-5XL: 2200 yds
I/5.5mm or size to obtain gauge
Yarn needle, stitch markers, contrasting color string for holding stitches
SPECIAL STITCHES / TECHNIQUES
Stacked Double Crochet (Stacked Dc): (Do not ch 1 prior to making the first sc) Sc in first stitch, insert hook in between two legs of the base, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook.
Shallow Front Post Half Double Crochet (shallow fphdc): Yarn over, insert hook from the front of the work under the top 2 loops (“v” of the stitches) of indicated stitch to back the back of the work and out the front of the work through the top 2 loops of the next stitch not around the post of designated stitch, and yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook..
X-Stitch-back: skip 2 sts, dc in next st, ch 1, working behind dc just made, dc into the first skipped stitch
Linked DC: Insert hook into 2nd ch from hook, yarn over and pull up a loop, insert hook into 3rd ch from hook, yarn over and pull up a loop, [yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook] twice (first linked dc made), *insert hook into horizontal bar (sliding hook from top to bottom of stitch, not to the back of the stitch) of previous linked dc, yarn over and pull up a loop, insert hook into next ch/st, yarn over and pull up a loop, [yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook] twice; repeat from * across to end. When working next row, ch 2, insert hook into 2nd ch from hook and first st to pull up loops.
- Sizes are written for the smallest size. If changes are necessary for larger sizes the instructions will be written thus ( ).
- The smaller size is written for a petite length.
- For taller size small follow the stitch count for the smaller size but the row count for the larger size.
- Work both fronts at the same time with separate balls of yarn (at the same point of color if not using a solid) to ensure matching sides.
