“Gobble, Gobble” … Tutt the Turkey Amigurumi crochet pattern has made its way to Craft Passion this November, just in time to wish everyone here a
Tutt the Turkey Amigurumi is about 11.5″ tall, crochet by using DK (or equivalent to 12-ply) acrylic yarn and crochet with a 3.0mm hook. The tail, on the other hand, was crochet by using a 4.5mm hook. However, the turkey size could vary with different yarn weight and crochet tension. Bulkier yarn with bigger hook size will achieve a bigger turkey, vice versa, lighter yarn with a smaller hook will obtain a smaller turkey. My crochet tension is quite snug, thus, my Tutt could be a little smaller compares to yours. Play around with different yarns, hooks, and colors to create your own version of Tutt Turkey Amigurumi.
The tail of the Turkey Amigurumi was adapted from my previous turkey coaster pattern. This version is slightly bigger than the previous and I did it just a little differently, you may find the Turkey Coasters Crochet Pattern here.

Tutt is a little shy turkey who has to help the family to make a living. The Turkey Amigurumi family needs some extra money for Christmas which is just around the corner. Being the eldest son in the family, Tutt knows that it has the duty to do its part. Knowing that the family is tight on money, this little filial turkey takes the initiative to volunteer to sell the pumpkin amigurumi (pattern here) harvested from their farm at a local morning farmer’s market.
On the first day in the market, Tutt brings some pumpkins to the market and set up a small stall. The market was full of people and it was so noisy and crowded. Tutt is extremely nervous as it has no experience in selling and meeting all kinds of strangers in the market. Tutt does not know how to sell and doesn’t even know how to handle when customers negotiate the price of the pumpkin. It feels so worried that it can’t sell any pumpkin to help the family.
“Gobble, Gobble…. who-oooooo wants pumpkin….. Gobble, Gobble, Gobble…. my pumpkin is fresh and sweet….” finally Tutt manages to shout out softly to get some attention from the public, hope that passerby will be interested in buying its nice pumpkins.
Maybe standing up higher will get more attention… Tutt begins to feel more comfortable after a while. It gains more confidence after it successfully sold a big pumpkin at a good price. Tutt manages to shout louder and attracts more customers to come over to its stall.
In just a fraction of the morning session in the market, Tutt has sold all the pumpkins except the last one. “Gobble, Gobble… can I finish selling all the pumpkin?” Will Tutt complete its mission? With the right attitude, always feel thankful and responsible to the family, I am sure Tutt will grow up to be a successful turkey in the future.
Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Crochet!!!
More Details on how to crochet the Turkey Amigurumi
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.
Parts to be added to the head: head with eyes installed, beak and snood.
Sew the beak below the center of the eye-whites.
Followed by sewing the snood enfolded on the top of the beak as shown in the picture.
Crochet all the parts as per the pattern above and get ready for the final assembly.
Sew to join head to the body.
Then sew wings followed by the feet to the body.
Tutt the turkey amigurumi doesn’t feel happy without its beautiful tail attached.
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.
The tail is attached but Tutt still feels something missing on its head.
Hmmm… Perhaps Tutt wants some hair (or crest) on its head to make it looks better.
Cut some shorts strand of yellow yarn and tie them around the tip of the head.
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.
