Free Crochet Thanksgiving Cornucopia

Free Crochet Thanksgiving Cornucopia

Hi everyone! My name is Vincent and I am the artist behind Knot Bad! If you follow along with Furl’s CAL’s, then I’m sure you’ve seen me around here quite a bit! I am the 24-year-old man who lives for Pokemon, heavy metal music, and my fair share of cinnamon rolls. I specialize in fun amigurumi and over the top crochet wear, however, I am making it a goal of 2018 to get into some fashion pieces in the Form of Yarn Punk. I reside in the Northwest of the United States in Portland, Oregon. I offer free patterns on my website, knotbadami.com, and you can find me on Instagram (@knot.bad) and Pinterest at Knot Bad Crochet! To those who are now seeing me for the first time, it’s lovely to meet you!

 

Thanksgiving is coming up and if you’re anything like me, you love the décor that the season of Fall brings to the table! (Next to Christmas time, of course) This month we are making a fund amigurumi set that is intended to be played with/ used as decoration to bring any home together! Perhaps even a centerpiece for that Thanksgiving meal? 😉 Stashed all into a Cornucopia, down below you will find al the materials needed to make your own little set for the Yarnucopia!

 

 

All the yarn that I used is from Lion Bran Yarn (as they are just my favorite!) but if you can find the same or similar colors in any worsted weight yarn, that will do, too! We will be making the main cornucopia first and then the rest of the items in separate parts. The first part of the pattern will be released on __ Can’t wait for you to join us, see you here next week!

The yarn I used- All Lion Brand, but any color for worsted weight yarn will do!
