Happy Wedneday and Happy Thanksgiving (tomorrow)! This week I’ve been featuring some FREE Thanksgiving related patterns to spice up your holiday, and today’s KUTD-able pattern suggestion is the fantastic Gobble! turkey cloth pattern by Elaine Fitzpatrick over on the Down Cloverlaine blog. It’s such a cute turkey and such a quick knit that you’ll be sure to get it done just in time for guests tomorrow.
To whip up a Gobble! cloth for yourself, you’ll need some cotton yarn in a color suitable for Thanksgiving. I’m thinking coppers, browns, yellows, or beiges. Though really you could make it a wild Thanksgiving and go with whatever colors you wanted. You’ll also need to cook up some US size 6 needles. Thankfully, no turkeys were harmed in the making of this pattern, either! (See previous pattern on Monday — I just recycled the joke. I know, original.)
I love how cute the turkey is on this dishcloth pattern and think it would be a great addition to your Thanksgiving table. What better to use in place of napkins (less waste!) or perhaps use as pot holders to keep a layer of protection between all of those hot bowls of food and your dinner table? Or if you’re not hosting dinner at your home this year, why not make a few to give as a gift to the hostess at the Thanksgiving dinner you’re attending? It would be a thoughtful gift and a great way to thank them for cooking a fabulous meal.
This Thanksgiving I’m grateful for friends and family. This will be my first Thanksgiving back in the states after living in Canada for three years, and I am eager to share it with family. Be sure to say thank you to all of those in your life this weekend, and enjoy the holiday!
