This is a large dishcloth using cotton yarn. It is not as quick as some of the other Thanksgiving dishcloths but still a very cute novelty for the big turkey day. Having stitch counts at the end of each round is a great help. Beginners, please take the time to count to prevent mistakes. Takes a little more time but it's worth it.

Wouldnt this be fun to have lurking in the kitchen when youre scrambling around getting dinner on the table? Hes available at the Yarnspirations website for free download (http// == cloth.html), too. I think I might change up the yarn on his feathers though. He just looks too bland to me, and I have some leftover Super Saver in Marakesh that needs a final home.

I made a lot of these last year and everyone LOVED them! It's a great hostess gift for holiday parties. For some, I also made a set of the turkey coasters to include with the dishcloth.

so cute

Turkey Dishcloth pattern's ROW 5 is extremely confusing. I think it should be rewritten and/or diagrams added showing where to put the stitches. I even called in for help and I still don't think I did it right. I DO crochet a lot and have been for many years but this i just could not get a grip on.
