TURKEY TROT 2021 CROCHET
Designed by Marly and Robyn
To Fit Size
S (M, L, XL) — to keep this a mystery- all we will say is this project makes a great gift- so when picking a size (ok, let’s be honest, guessing a size)- think about the recipient, how big are they? Would you say they are a pigeon, cornish hen, chicken, or Thanksgiving turkey in size?
Day 1: Turkey Trot is 8 (9, 10, 11)” [20.5, 23, 25.5, 28 cm] wide by 3” [7.5 cm] long.
16 sts x 16 rows = 4” [10 cm] x 4.25” [11 cm]; use any size hook to obtain the gauge. Use Day 1 stitch pattern for gauge. Meaning 1 row of hdc alternating with 1 row of sc in 3rd loop for gauge.
