Crochet Turkey Amigurumi Pattern

Would you believe it? It’s Thanksgiving, so HAPPY THANKSGIVING, everyone! From Mr Gobble , the sock turkey, comes his cousin for crochet-lovers. Introducing Tutt the crochet Turkey amigurumi – just arrived in Craft Passion land this November to bring you lots of Thanksgiving love. If you enjoyed Mr Gobble, then making Tutt will be double “gobble, gobble” joy.

Tutt the turkey amigurumi stands at 11.5” tall and is crocheted using DK (equivalent to 12-ply) acrylic yarn and a 3.0mm hook. The tail, on the other hand, is crochet by using a 4.5mm hook. This turkey amigurumi tail was adapted from my previous turkey coaster pattern, which you may want to try. The tail on Tutt’s version is a little bigger and also a little differently done, and just as much fun to do.

Just remember, the size of any amigurumi depends on yarn weight and crochet tension. Bulkier yarn with a bigger hook size means you’re creating a bigger turkey and vice versa, lighter yarn with a smaller hook gives you a smaller turkey. My crochet tension is quite snug (tight), so my Tutt could be a little smaller than yours. So have fun in amigurumi with different yarns, hooks, colors and even tensions to create your very own version of Tutt turkey amigurumi.

Tutt the turkey amigurumi isn’t a very big turkey. He’s also quite a shy turkey. In his turkey amigurumi family, Tutt is super helpful and loves to help his family members out. With Christmas coming around soon, he knows they need some extra pocket money for the holidays and thought of a great idea to sell the crochet pumpkin amigurumi (click the link to the crochet pattern) from their garden. He knows the other residents would love a good-sized pumpkin for family dinners. So, off he goes “gobble, gobble, gobble” to the town center with his pumpkins.

Turkey Amigurumi With Pumpkin Amigurumi Going To The Market…

Being a little shy, Tutt was a little overwhelmed by so many people gathering and chattering. It was so noisy and crowded! Now he’s starting to get a little nervous about meeting so many people all at the same time. But he knows he has a job to do, so he gathers up all his courage in his chest and tells himself, “I can do this, and there is nothing to be afraid of. These people are just like me”.

Taking a deep breath, Tutt begins with a warble and “Gobble, gobble …. pumpkinsssss for salllleeeeee….. who wants a pumpkinnnnnn…..”. With every warble, he gets a little braver and louder, till soon, his warble can be heard from one end of the marketplace to the other. Pretty soon, he’s surrounded by customers, all attracted by his loud warble and impressed by his beautiful pumpkins. My goodness, now there’s a queue lining up to pay for those pumpkins, too.

An hour later, all of Tutt’s pumpkins are sold out, except for one baby pumpkin. “What should I do with this one?” he asks himself. “It’s too little for a family but too wasteful to throw away. I’ll just pack this up and think about it on the way home.”

Waddling across the field, he bumps into a little boy crying quietly. “Why are you crying, little boy?” Tutt asks. “My ball fell into the river and it’s too dangerous for my dad to swim in and get it. My daddy says he doesn’t have money to buy me a new one. I don’t want to trouble my parents because they work really hard for food to eat. I don’t want them to see me crying but I miss my ball,” he sniffs.

Hearing this, Tutt smiled and said, “Have my last baby pumpkin. It’s the most special of all my pumpkins because I think it was reserved for you”. He hands over the cute pumpkin to the little boy, who wiped his eyes in surprise and leaned over to hug Tutt tightly. “Thank you, kind turkey amigurumi,” he whispers in Tutt’s ear. “It’s special because it’s from you”.

Tutt left him, playing in the field with his new baby pumpkin toy. “Now, my job is really done,” Tutt speaks to himself, smiling. His pockets are full of extra money for the holidays, and his heart is full of happiness. “Happy Thanksgiving to everyone”, he warbles in glee.

How To Assembly Crochet Turkey Amigurumi

  1. Crochet all the parts as per the pattern above and get ready for the final assembly.
    turkey amigurumi parts
  2. Make up the head by adding eyes, beak and snood.
    Sew the slanted eyebrows with a short dark brown yarn above the safety eyes. You may create other expressions by altering the angles of the slope.

    Sew the beak below the center of the eye-whites.
    head6

    Followed by sewing the snood enfolded on the top of the beak as shown in the picture.
    head7
  3. Sew to join head to the body.
    assembly2
  4. Then sew wings followed by the feet to the body.
    assembly4
  5. Tutt the turkey amigurumi doesn’t feel happy without its beautiful tail attached.
    assembly6

    Position the tail on the back of the body, pin.
    Sew the bottom arc of the tail to the body.

    Sew the rest of the arc of the tail to the body.
    assembly8
  6. The tail is attached but Tutt still feels something missing on its head.
    tutt turkey crochet animal

    Hmmm… Perhaps Tutt wants some hair (or crest) on its head to make it looks better.
    assembly10

    Cut some shorts strand of yellow yarn and tie them around the tip of the head.
    assembly11

Tutt is now happy that it has a beautiful tail and hair. Though the eyebrows expression doesn’t match its feeling, trust me Tutt is happy with how it looks. He is just a little worried about its mission in the market.

I am pretty pleased with how Tutt the turkey amigurumi has turned out to be.

Especially the full and fluffy tail that boosted Tutt’s self-confidence.

Nice pattern. Had a problem with the neck being VERY wobbly even with firmly stuffing so went to a plan B and out several pipe stems in the openings.

I made this fun turkey. I am new to amigurumi and like to use blanket yarn because it hides my stitch spaces. This guy is awesome he’s about 24” tall and I love him. Thanks for the pattern

That's awesome. I tried the crochet pig with blanket yarn too, and I love the size. Will try turkey next time. Thanks for sharing your outcome.

Can you tell me where I can buy the yarn?

Can't seem to find DK yarn around here to make the turkey. Can I use #4 yarn and if so what size hooks would I use.

Craft Passion

Tuesday 16th of August 2022

#4 yarn is slightly heavier than DK yarn and you may still use a 2.5mm crochet hook. However, if you find your stitches are too tight and difficult to work with, you may increase the hook size to 3.0 mm.
