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.
Day 2: This section adds 5.5 (6.5, 7.5, 8.75)”[14, 16.5, 19, 22 cm] in length and is 4 (4.5, 5, 5.5)” [10, 11.5, 12.5, 14 cm] in width
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.

First Column: Join color B between 2nd and 3rd st of foundation, hold working yarn on WS, *insert hook from front to back between same stitches 1 row up, yarn over, pull loop up to RS of fabric and through loop on hook; repeat from * up fabric. (optional: when you get to any color B hdc row, remove hook from free loop, insert hook under top 2 loops of hdc , replace free loop and pull through. This places the sl st under the hdc row.)

Third Column: Join color B between 5th and 6th st on foundation, repeat directions for first column. Skip 4 (5, 6, 7) sts and repeat the directions above by starting another column in between the next 2 sts after the skipped stitches. See color diagram for placement of sl st embroidery column. Repeat across project. Fasten off and weave in all ends. (yes, all ends, this will take some time and better to do it now. )
