When it comes to decor, Thanksgiving doesn’t get the same treatment as other holidays like Halloween and Christmas. But here at Craftsy, we think every holiday deserves something special — especially when that something special involves crochet patterns.
These Thanksgiving-themed crochet patterns can help you create a memorable centerpiece, wall art, table settings or just something to keep the kiddos busy while you prepare the feast.
Don’t worry: the prep for these projects isn’t nearly as time consuming as preparing the Thanksgiving meal.
All of these crochet patterns are small and quick, so you can still have time to stitch them up before Turkey Day.

3. Pilgrim Hat
Stitch this hat for a little one in your family. The pattern has instructions for sizes that range from newborn to child. If you don’t have any kiddos to don the hat, you can also stitch this up as a centerpiece or just a fun decoration.

4. Crochet Thanksgiving Turkey Napkin Rings
Make guests smile with these fun little napkin rings. You can even let guests take them home as a favor after the meal if over, if you’d like. (Of course, we don’t blame you if you want to save them for next year!)

6. Fall Oak Leaves
There are so many different uses for these pretty leaves. Scatter them on the table as decoration, use them as coasters, string them together to create a garland — so versatile. Plus, it’s a great way to use up those fall-colored scraps from your stash.

7. Thanksgiving Turkey Crochet Pillow
After you’ve filled your belly with a delicious meal, rest on this puffy pillow that’s perfect for a Thanksgiving nap. Smaller yardages of your scrap yarn work well for the feathers, feet and facial features.

8. Amigurumi Thanksgiving Turkey
You can never have too many turkey amigurumi patterns for Thanksgiving! This turkey looks great on the table, or you can give it to your favorite kiddo as a toy. Just make sure you replace the safety eyes with something safer if the toy is for an infant.

Stitch a doily that’s special and just for Thanksgiving. This doily would work great on a buffet to protect the surface from hot dishes. Get ready for some small delicate stitches; you’ll use size 10 crochet thread and a tiny hook.

10. Turkey Leg Drumstick
