General Fall Patterns
Thanksgiving, and especially fall, is all about the fall leaf. Embrace the season, and bring in a bit of fall color to your house, with these cute crochet patterns all featuring fall leaves.
If you’re looking for a larger project, try this Falling Leaves Afghan pattern from Red Heart. Featuring rich fall colors and cute leaves, this blanket will keep you warm from the fall chill. If you’re looking for this project to be ready by Thanksgiving, start early, as blankets can be very time consuming.
This fall leave pattern is a great way to decorate your guests wine glasses. You could easily rotate the colors in this pattern, so that each one looks slightly different, allowing people to quickly identify their glasses. Or, use different color embroidery floss for the detail. Either way, these wineglass decorations are sure to be a hit.
Thanksgiving Coaster Patterns
Crochet coasters are the best. They’re soft, easily absorb any spills, and are unexpected because most people don’t have coasters made of yarn.
Coasters are a great way to save your furniture and add a little holiday flare. What’s more, they’re a quick project to whip up, leaving you more time to focus on Thanksgiving dinner.
These cute crochet coasters look just like fall leaves. Try making them in different sizes and yarn colors to achieve different looks.
These cute coasters look just like a little turkey. Great for adding color and Thanksgiving charm to the table. Just be warned, the kids might not be able to keep their hands off of these.
Thanksgiving Plushie Patterns
These Thanksgiving patterns feature cute, plushie stuffed toys that can be used as decoration, or given to the kids to keep them entertained.
Sure to be a hit, the cornucopia is a long standing symbol of Thanksgiving. Use this cute little pattern from Lion Brand to add some color to your Thanksgiving table. Note you may have to sign up to view the pattern, but it’s free, and they have lots of other great crochet and knitting patterns. Note: You will have to have a membership to access this pattern, but it's free, and they have a ton of other cute crochet and knitting patterns.
If you want to have a little fun with the kids this Thanksgiving, present them with a can of crocheted jellied cranberry sauce. This crochet pattern yields one, unsliced length of jellied cranberry sauce.
What’s Thanksgiving without a pilgrim or two? While this pattern is for a boy pilgrim, it would be easy to turn it into a girl pilgrim by modifying the hair section to make it longer and more feminine.
