Hi I vote for the Nativity Set. )

I am voting for the Nativity Set, been wanting it forever, it is 1 by far!!!!!!

I vote the crocheted Pilgrims

I prefer the Nativity rate a 10


the nativity..

There are hundreds of crocheted nativities, so I vote for the pilgrims.

I love the pilgrims. They are adorable.

The Nativity is my choice, but I would be happy to get instructions for either one. I prefer the Nativity because this country is getting more and more anti-Christmas, and that needs to end!!

Both would be awesome

pilgrims as I don't have a lot of thanksgiving decorations

love both but if I have to choose one it has to be the nativity

I like them both but definitely prefer the nativity!


It's true the Pilgrims landing at Plymouth Rock and the 1st Thanksgiving are very nice and important to this country's existence. More colorful, more pieces, & more meaningful is the NATIVITY!!! Without CHRISTmas and the birth of 'our King;' we wouldn't have faith & hope. Our faith allows us the knowledge that there is Heaven. Earth is just a 'stopover.' Christ began his time on Earth in humble surroundings. He is our Savior. He will come again to rule as King of ALL nations. I vote for the NATIVITY!!!

Discovering Plymouth Rock was a start for this country. More importantly, the birth of Christ leads us in faith and hope. He was born to be our Savior/Redeemer. Pilgrims may look nice. However, just as beautiful and certainly more meaningful is the NATIVITY! Cast my vote for the NATIVITY!!!

the Nativity pleassssssse!







They are both adorable - but I have to go with the Crocheted Nativity scene first!!!



Definitely the Crocheted Nativity.

I would love to have the pattern for the pilgrims.


I do love em both; but I think I'd choose the nativity (first).

I haven't made either pattern but I love both of them. If I had to pick one of them it would be the nativity. That does not take away from the other.

I love the pilgrims and they could be used in so many ways during Thanksgiving and fall


I would love to have both but if I have to vote for one I guess I will vote for Thanksgiving since I have fewer Thanksgiving things.

Nativity Please!!

Love them both but will choose nativity

I would love to of had the patterns now so I could make them for Thanksgiving and Christmas They look fun to do

I love the little lambs in the Nativity. I made a crocheted Nativity for my mother many years ago, so I am partial to that one.

Bellissimi entrambi, ma io voto per la nativit. Potrei ricevere le istruzioni (pattern)?




Both please, thanks.


I'd like to see both patterns, can't choose!!! But thanks, and please, even if it's not free, make the pattern that doesn't win available, I'd be willing to buy it.

I love them both! Just cant choose one..

I love the Nativity Scene...Jesus is the reason for the season....


both thanks



I have made a similar nativity set for my grandson. Would love to make the pilgrims. I vote for both since they are adorable and would make great gifts.

Pilgrims!!!!! I've seen plenty of different Nativity sets, but never any pilgrims. :)

I LOVE BOTH OF THEM, but would enjoy making the Nativity set for now.

Nativity please

Nativity please. :)

I like the Pilgrims but I really want to make the Naivety set

Both are adorable but the nativity is my fave even if it does look difficult to make.

Love the Nativity


Nativity please


Nativity set please!!!

Nativity for sure. But pilgrims are close second

Nativity. I love it. Who ever did it is really good.

dubugg I Love The Nativity!!! Would love to have

Made a fabric nativity for my children and would like to make a crochet one for the grandchildren.

I like the Nativity most.


I would like both but I will start with the pilgrims

Nativity!!!!!! Please!!!!! do you print off the pattern?!

I like Crocheted Pilgrims better.


Nativity! And I want the pattern please.


Definitely nativity




I want the Nativity pattern,would like the Pilgrims also!

I think I'd have to say Thanksgiving. Both holidays bring the family together, but with Christmas brings such stress of dinner & gifts (sometimes disappointing to the kids) & entertaining. Sure, T-day is a big dinner day, but usually relaxing afterwards.

Love this. Want the pattern.

I would love the Nativity!!!

I like the Nativity set! The grand-kids can play with this one and not have to worry about breaking them.

The nativity is great my first choice, would like the pilgrims pattern to do as well

the nativity is my favourite but would like the pilgrims as well to do

the nativity as christmas but also the thanksgivivg one. both so cute it is hard to choose

I prefer the nativity and agree that it would allow the g-kids to re-create the Christmas story in their own words and actions.... fun, and sweet.

I love both but would love to have the Nativity

like both have one pattern for nativity would like one for pilgrims

Definitely the Nativity! This is one of the prettiest versions I've seen.

the nativity

They are both adorable, but I would choose the Nativity Scene. I like having hands-on things for the grandkids. They could use this to tell the Christmas Story in their own words. It would make for a great video!

The Nativity is my choice, I love it.

I love the Nativity, and would love to have the pattern (As a Canadian, there are no "pilgrim's" in my country's heritage, so I wouldn'tbe likely to make them, though they are very cute.)

I love them both!

The nativity

I would love the nativity

They are both fantastic but I would choose the Nativity.

The nativity is by far my choice!!! Love it!!!

The nativity is my choice by far! Love it!!!

The Nativity would be a challenge for me but I would give it as try

I would love the nativity

I would love to have both patterns too, but since i have to choose only one I choose the Nativity :)

Both are adorable, i would love the patterns to both.

I love both for different reasons but since i have to choose one, so I choose the nativity scene. Geri

I love both of them. but if I have to pick one , the pilgrims since it is so close to Thanksgiving.

Both are adorable, I could not make a choice.


Love the pilgrims. There is already an overload of Christmas patterns out there.

Love the Pilgrims. Too many Christmas patterns already and nothing for Thanksgiving. I would definitely make thes for myself as well as friends.

I like them both and I could use both as decorations.

The Nativity scene is darling. Christmas is the only holiday we decorate for. The pilgrims are cute, but the Nativity wins in our house.

I love both, but... I am also a Nativity fan, so that is choice!

think the Thanksgiving one is the nicest pattern but want both patterns ... would make both

The the lambs.

so many favored the christmas ones but if we think about it the pilgrims gave us tradition of giving thanks and if you really think about it Thanksgiving is really not shown in stores and so should be valued as part of our heritage for sure. I vote for the pilgrims and for ideas maybe make them to place in a basket for a family that otherwise would not be able to gather and eat.

love the nativity so sweet

I think both are adorable; but I've always been more drawn to Christmas, so would definately make Nativity first. Thank you.

I absolutely love both of these patterns but since I have to choose, it would have to be the Nativity. Thank you.

Love the Nativity set-always wanted to make one

They are both equally wonderful patterns for the two different holidays.

They are both equally wonderful patterns for the two different holidays.

Estan divinos! Pero prefiero el pesebre de navidad. Desde Colombia lo felicito por tan bellos patrones en crochet. Mil gracias



Print the Pilgrim instructions please!

The nativity is my choice. It's what it stands for. The fact that Jesus came to pay for our sins. Something we cannot do. Also, it's a reminder to keep the meaning of Christmas in our hearts year round. It does help us to treat others better than normal. I am striving to get better at it. Thanksgiving is important in that we give thanks for the many blessings in our lives. Sometimes you have to stop and give great thought to that when many things are going badly! But, it is about spending time with family and growing closer to each other instead of far apart.


I've not made the nativity yet but plan to. The thing is to remember what the nativity stands for and keep Christmas in your heart year round. It's something I strive for but am not even close to good at. But perserverance is the key! Thanksgiving is important in that yes it's a family day and that is greatly important. But Christ's coming is a far and away more important day!

Thanksgiving as it is only about family. (While it is true that Thanksgiving is an American holiday, it is also true that non-Christians do not celebrate Christmas.)

Nativity please!!!!!!!!

Nativity please.

Nativity - no thanksgiving here

I prefer the pilgrims, because I have a lot of Christmas decorations and the pilgrims are really cute, and remind me that I have a lot to be thankful for.

La Nativit

the nativity that I would make since we do not celebrate thanksgiving in europ

both but christmas more

Pilgrims are the cutest.

I would like to make the nativity set, it would have great worldwide appeal

The Nativity is something special that I'd like to make.

i prefer the pelgrims, so cute

The nativity- I think the grandkids would love it!

Though both are special, I love the nativity pattern, and would probably make at least one set.

I really like the pilgrims!

I would like to do both crafts

Cant wait to get the pattern it is so cute

Very beatiful

The Nativity!!! It would look wonderful in my house!

I think they are both nice

I love the nativity set! I generally collect a set each year and I will love adding this one to my collection.

Would like to make the Nativity to replace the one I gave to my daughter. It was made by my dad when I was a child. I will give this one to my granddaughter when she grows up.

I love the Nativity set.I can't wait to get the pattern !

I much prefer the Nativity, although the pilgrims are too adorable for words!

Nativity by far!

Luv them both. The nativity is the best.

I love the Nativity set. It has wonderful pieces.

Definitely the nativity - nicely done


Nativity... From Mxico.

Charlu Nativity hands down!!

I want to crochet the nativity for my great niece.

I love the Nativity, the pilgrims are really nice too but I vote for the Nativity.

There are many patterns for Christmas, not so many for Thanksgiving(except turkeys). I want to make to make the Pilgrims.



Both patterns are very cute! As far as the real holidays go, Christmas by a landslide! :)

Would love to have the nativity for my daughter...but I like the pilgrims too..Thanksgiving gets cheated.

I love both patterns

Love the Nativity! I've never seen anything like this before.


I would love to have a nativity pattern for free. Would make great gifts for my church family.

Nativity. both are great though. You should do both.

Sooo cute!!!! Pilgrims only because I feel we should celebrate it before Christmas, maybe because I born the day after Christmas and I always feel like everyone is trying to rush Christmas. We should be thankful for each day we have :D




My Grandbabies would so love the nativity scene

My Grandbabies would so love the nativity scene

My Grandbabies would so love the nativity scene

Love both, but the Nativity is #1!

I love them both but I like The Crocheted Nativity the best.
