Yarncraft for Thanksgiving    

Your guests will  be welcomed into your house with a fall leaf wreath for your door from Lion brand or maybe some Indian corn from Create! Invite them in and protect your furniture during cocktails with these simple yet classy crochet felted leaf coasters.

Crochet felted leaves sewn together will make a nice felted runner for your Thanksgiving table. Spread of these festive, quick and easy acorns that your children can help you make. If you aren’t a member of Lion Brand patterns, take a moment and sign up.

The purlbee has felted Thanksgiving Oven Mitts that would make a wonderful hostess gift. If you are having dinner at your house and you don’t receive them, change up the colors and make them for yourself in blue and white for Chanukah or green and red for Christmas.

Fun facts: Minnesota is the top turkey produce in the USA. Cranberries and turkeys are both native to the Americas. The Wampanoag Indians helped host the first Thanksgiving. It was in 1941 that Congress proclaimed the fourth Thursday in November would be Thanksgiving.

The Jive Turkey hats in the photograph are perfect for a baby’s first Thanksgiving. Going Crafty has a pattern for it.
