Turkey Legs

I'm continuing work on my Thanksgiving crochet food. DH's favorite part of the Thanksgiving dinner is the turkey legs. It seemed fitting to add some to the Thanksgiving play food part of the package I'm sending out.

I've been having fun looking through AmiguruMe Eatsand this first turkey leg pattern comes from that book. As I've mentioned previously this book does discuss scents but you can easily make these projects as normal amigurumi food projects without the scents if you choose to do so as I have without any issue. For those interested in scents there are directions.

When possible even when making the same item I love to try different patterns. I've never thought items had to be identical. The second pattern is a free pattern you can find here.

While both legs were made with the same worsted weight yarn they are different sizes as the first was made with a D hook and the second with an E hook. The construction styles were different and I enjoyed playing with both designs.

There are larger patterns out there for turkey legs like this free one here that I looked at when thinking about food to include in the Thanksgiving box. However, space can be an issue when kids start acquiring play food. Sometimes small isn't a bad thing.

These are adorable! They'd make cute table favors or as play food for kiddies.
