  1. Super cute Turkey! Very easy to follow pattern. One question, how do you get your feathers to stiffen? Mine are limp. Especially the red ones.

    1. Hi there! To make them stand a bit more stiff I sewed the feathers on not only the back, but also on the back of the head. If you want the feathers more stiff on their own, you can also crochet another set of feathers in the same colors and sew/crochet the feathers together. This will make each feather thicker. Let me know what you think! I’d be happy to help you further or offer more suggestions if needed 🙂

  2. Was I supposed to change 1 at the beginning of each round? I’m just getting a bigger and bigger circle, no curving is taking place to form ball of the head, I’m at 30 at around now.

    1. Hi there! No, you don’t need to chain 1 at the beginning of each round. However, if you’re at round 30 you should have the head formed completely by then. This is because at Round 14-17 we decrease, which forms the head. Then at Round 18 we work in the front loops, then start forming the body. Perhaps did you make sure to decrease when stated at rounds 14-17? This might be why there’s no head formed yet. Let me know and I’m happy to help you further! Thanks

  3. I found an easy way to make the feathers. Follow the arm pattern to the 12 row increase. Change to hdc and continue crocheting in spirials to desired length. Slip stitch in next stitch fasten off. Sew on back just as pattern shows. Easier.

    1. That feather looks really great! Thank you so much for sharing, I will have to try it out too 😍 It looks so good!
