Hodge’s Favorite Things: Free Thanksgiving Crochet Cuteness


Excited HodgeHodge is very excited for Thanksgiving. I mean, look at him. He can’t sit still, he’s so excited.

He says he’s jumping for joy because there’s just so much to look forward to. The food. The football. The friends and family. The food. And all the Thanksgiving decorations and toys he plans to crochet to make the season as festive as can be.

This year, Hodge has helped me gather some of his very favorite free Thanksgiving crochet patterns to share with you. He says you should make them all and proudly display them on your mantel for everyone to see. Or if you will be traveling this Thanksgiving, any one of these would make a very unique gift for the host and a sure conversation starter.

  1. I love getting your emails. I made the pumpkin for my granddaughter, and she loves it. Also made her a ghost and candy corn…….all so cute. Thanks for your emails

    • Hi Karen! Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me a lovely comment. It’s so good to know that my posts are appreciated. That pumpkin is super cute. Along with your ghost and candy corn, your granddaughter has a cute little bunch. 🙂

  2. Hello,my dear!! ❤ ❤ ❤ We have imported the Halloween feast here in Europe lately but I would have like more to have Thanksgiving! …. Not to diminish the importance and the spirit of Halloween (which to most of Christian folks is not clear well enough since I read some strange comments on FB….. :/ ),but I find that thanking God (even if I'm arguing a lot with this entity at the moment….) for the harvest and the earthy fruits is so respectful for mankind and the planet……

    • Hello, my friend! It’s so good to hear from you. I promise to keep in touch with your blog more regularly from now on. Now that Halloween and Day of the Dead have passed, I hope to have more time for my favorite people and hobbies. This time of year is truly my favorite. I love the fall colors and giving thanks for all my blessings. It’s good to know that you enjoy these things too. 🙂 Lots of hugs to you!

      • Here I am,my dear ❤ sorry I was a bit busy so I can answer to your sweet comment.Everything was ok,I spent Halloween with my companion and the Day of the Dead with the family. There's some new I have to tell you but will write you an email this weekend ❤ ❤ ❤

        • No worries. I know a lot about being busy. 🙂 I am glad to hear that you are doing well. I can’t wait to hear your news!!! I am looking forward to sitting down with a cup of tea and corresponding with you this weekend. I always love to hear from you, dear friend. ❤

          • tomorrow in the afternoon,around 4 p.m. i.e. 8 a.m in the States, I should be free.If you don’t have any commitments we can have a chat.. or we can do that next week!Since I’m spending time alone I have more fredom to choose and can adjust my commitments more easily… let me know what’s better for you…. so I can avoid to write an email,I prefer to talk with you directly 🙂

  3. I love the thanks giving stuff, unfortunately it’s not celebrated here in the UK

  4. I continue to be amazed at how the world of crochet and amigurumi can turn just about anything into absolute cuteness! That scarecrow is awesome! Thanks to Hodge for sharing these with us!

  5. The pumpkin pie is killing me with how adorable it is! I must learn how to do this stuff! 🙂

  6. They are all wonderful but that pie is sooooo cute! Update. The aussie ami’s are very excited and all want to come but I said only a few representatives can go. They have an appearance to make this Saturday then they will be winging their way to the United States of America to spend Christmas and New Years with the gang at Squirrel Picnic. Christmas in America! They are almost bursting with excitement! 🙂

    • YAY!!!! I can’t wait to see them. Hodge and Podge are already planning their welcome party. Everyone who has been missing Squirrel Picnic comics lately is in for a real treat this holiday season. I think I have at least 3 planned. I can’t wait to work with you on the NYE one. It is bound to be epic! Wishing all the Aussie amis a safe trip!
