First - grab my Lil' Chickie pattern from my shop!
Follow that pattern, using brown for the body & wings and yellow for the beak & feet. For the tuft, use orange.
For the Wattle: Using red yarn & your chosen hook, CH 5. Work 3 DC in 2nd CH from hook, SC in remaining chains. Fasten off, leaving a long tail to sew your wattle to your Tom.
For the Tail: Tail Feathers (Make 7) I made one yellow, two orange, and 4 red.
Round 1: 5 SC in MR.
Round 2: 5 INC.
Rounds 3 - 9: SC in each ST around.
Flatten your feather & working through both sides, work 5 SC to close the feather.
Sew your wattle just above your beak.
Arrange and sew your tail feathers to the back of your turkey. I started by arranging five feathers: red, orange, yellow, orange, red. Each feather has 5 STS across the bottom. I sewed each orange feather half way overlapped on each red feather. I sewed through the bottom SC STS. Then I sewed the yellow feather overlapped on the two orange feathers. I sewed these to the back of my turkey six rounds from the center of the bottom in a slight arch. Then I sewed the remaining two red feathers behind the set of five in the center space of the arch.
