Country Turkey Amigurumi – Free Crochet Pattern

Country Turkey Amigurumi – Free Crochet Pattern
Happy November! November means I’m obligated to bring you a free turkey amigurumi crochet pattern 😁 This pattern has to be my favorite turkey I’ve made so far. In case you missed them, I have 2 other turkey patterns from the previous years, you can check them out here and here.

This turkey pattern is going after that country decor look that was so popular in the 80’s and 90’s. Everything has ribbons and buttons, and geese were all the rage! Maybe I should do a big goose sometime soon, but for now, here’s this turkey. I’m going to be hanging him on my wall for all of November. A quick idea – you can stuff him with scented things like a sachet. Maybe ginger or clove with cinnamon? Anyways, let’s get started on making him!

• Before we get started…
This turkey is such a cute decoration, I decided to hang it up on my wall for all of November! He requires a lot of little pieces, but is very much worth all the effort 🙂

• Let’s Get Started!
His body is made in rows, so we will make 2 separate pieces and crochet them together to form the body. Next, we will make the feathers. We make 2 flat feather pieces and crochet them together to form 1 whole feather piece. We then make the face pieces arms, and optional ribbon and buttons.

Body:

In Light Brown

We will make two flat pieces of the turkey’s body, then place them together. We will crochet them together to form 1 body!

Finish off the first piece you made now. Add safety eyes into the first piece now.
DON’T finish off the second piece you make, instead, continue on with the following step.

 

Body:

In Light Brown

Line up both pieces together, making sure the right sides are facing out and the eyes are facing out. The stitches should align. Insert your hook into the next stitch, making sure to go through BOTH loops (Pic 1). Yarn over (Pic 2) and pull the yarn through (Pic 3). You will have 2 loops on your hook (Pic 4). Make a slip stitch by pulling the left loop under the right loop (Pic 5-6). Continue making 1 SlSt all around the turkey until it’s almost crocheted closed. Stuff the turkey firmly before it’s fully closed (Pic 7), then continue crocheting it closed. Once done, finish off and weave in ends (Pic 8).

Feathers: (Make 2 pieces, front and back)

Start in orange

 

Round 1: Ch 4. Dc 9 times into the 1st ch. This will create a bunch of double crochets into a circle, much like when we make a magic ring. Join to the top of the Ch 3 we first made by making a slip stitch. From now on, this step will be referred to as “join”. (10)
Round 2: Ch 3, Dc in the same st. Dc in the next st. Repeat *2 Dc in each st* 9 times (20)
Round 3: Join to the top of the Ch 3 with a SlSt. Ch 3, Dc in the same st, Dc in the next st. Repeat *2 dc in the next st, Dc next st* 9 times (30)
Round 4: Join to the top of the Ch 3 with a SlSt. Ch 3, Dc in the same st, Dc in the next 2 st. Repeat *2 Dc in the next st, Dc in the next 2 st* 9 times (40)

In the next round we will make the feathers for the turkey by making 4 double crochets into the same 1 stitch, these are known as “double crochet clusters”. I alternated colors for each cluster, but you can keep them the same color for less weaving in ends.

For my first feather piece, I started in Red, yellow, orange, brown, green, red, yellow, brown, then green.

First Feather Piece, Round 5: Join to the top of the Ch 3 with a SlSt. Change to red. Ch 3, Dc 3 times into that same st, Sc in the next 2 st.
Change to yellow, Dc 3 times into the next st, Sc in the next 2 st.
Change to orange, Dc 3 times into the next st, Sc in the next 2 st.
Change to brown, Dc 3 times into the next st, Sc in the next 2 st.
Change to green, Dc 3 times into the next st, Sc in the next 2 st.
Change to red, Dc 3 times into the next st, Sc in the next 2 st.
Change to yellow, Dc 3 times into the next st, Sc in the next 2 st.
Change to brown, Dc 3 times into the next st, Sc in the next 2 st.
Change to green, Dc 3 times into the next st, Sc in the next 2 st.
Finish off the first feather piece now.

When you make your second feather piece, you will reverse this order. Start with green, brown, yellow, red, green, brown, orange, yellow, and red. We reverse it so when we crochet the feathers together, the colors will match up when facing different ways.

Second feather piece:

In orange

 

Second Feather Piece, Round 5: Join to the top of the Ch 3 with a SlSt. Change to green. Ch 3, Dc 3 times into that same st, Sc in the next 2 st.
Change to brown, Dc 3 times into the next st, Sc in the next 2 st.
Change to yellow, Dc 3 times into the next st, Sc in the next 2 st.
Change to red, Dc 3 times into the next st, Sc in the next 2 st.
Change to green, Dc 3 times into the next st, Sc in the next 2 st.
Change to brown, Dc 3 times into the next st, Sc in the next 2 st.
Change to orange, Dc 3 times into the next st, Sc in the next 2 st.
Change to yellow, Dc 3 times into the next st, Sc in the next 2 st.
Change to red, Dc 3 times into the next st, Sc in the next 2 st.
DON’T finish off the second feather piece you make. Instead, change to orange.

Align both feather pieces together so the colors match up (Pic 1). Inserting your hook through BOTH stitches (Pic 3), SlSt the next 13 st together. You will have to change to your next feather color when you meet it (Pic 8), so if you followed my colors, change to green now. SlSt the next 6 st.
Change to brown, SlSt in the next 6 st.
Change to yellow, SlSt in the next 6 st.
Change to red, SlSt in the next 6 st.
Change to green, SlSt in the next 6 st.
Change to brown, SlSt in the next 6 st.
Change to orange, SlSt in the next 6 st.
Stuff the feathers lightly now (Pic 9).
Change to yellow, SlSt in the next 6 st.
Change to red, SlSt in the next 6 st.
Finish off now and leave a long tail for sewing.
