Tiny Turkey – Free Pattern!

Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,

I am happy to bring you the complete Tiny Turkey pattern today. Since I have already written so much about this project I will keep it short today. The Tiny Turkey was originally presented in a six part series as a knitalong project. The dates for the original knitalong were Oct. 30th through November 6th, 2009, each part is a separate blog post. Please feel free to browse through these past posts for in depth details and photos of the Tiny Turkey in progress.

There are already many completed turkeys on Ravelry.  Ravelry link for this project is here!

Have fun! I hope to see lots and lots of turkeys gobbling around before Thanksgiving and beyond.
