You want to make something totally impressive to take to dinner besides your green bean casserole? You're in the right place.

  1. Amazing! I love it!! Thank you for sharing!

  2. This pattern is adorable! I had a lot of trouble with the legs because I haven't got tiny nimble fingers, but I managed and my turkey looks great! But I'm confused with the platter. I don't understand the stitch count of round 1. If you start with a chain of 5, skip the first one, that leaves 4 to crochet along, so you do 3 sc then 6 hdc in the 4th (final) chain, then 3 sc up the underside til you get to the last and do 6 hdc. if you total all the stitches you get 18 not 15, or am I misunderstanding? Thank you, and a HUGE thank you for sharing the pattern and making a video!

  5. If you could give some more notes on assembling the turkey, that would be very helpful.

  6. Isn't it just 36 single stitches on rounds 4-5?? How did you get 54?

  7. Did you know there's a 12 word sentence you can communicate to your crush... that will trigger deep emotions of love and impulsive attraction to you buried inside his heart?

    That's because deep inside these 12 words is a "secret signal" that fuels a man's instinct to love, admire and protect you with all his heart...

    This instinct is so built-in to a man's mind that it will make him try harder than before to make your relationship the best part of both of your lives.

    Matter-of-fact, fueling this powerful instinct is so mandatory to having the best possible relationship with your man that as soon as you send your man one of the "Secret Signals"...

    ...You'll immediately notice him expose his mind and heart to you in such a way he haven't experienced before and he'll recognize you as the only woman in the world who has ever truly attracted him.
