Crochet Your Way Through Thanksgiving
In this guide, we’ll dive into why you’ll want to crochet a Thanksgiving square, the kinds of materials you’ll need, and a roundup of designer squares from me and fellow crocheters. Plus, we’ll talk about all the awesome stuff you can do with your finished squares!
Why Crochet a Thanksgiving Square?
There are many reasons to crochet a Thanksgiving square, but a few of my favorite reasons why are below.
- Unique Decor: Imagine showing off your dining table with coasters, pot holders, or a runner that YOU made, at your Thanksgiving table. Trust me, it’s a conversation starter.
- Personal Touch: Store-bought decorations are fine, but nothing says “home” like something you’ve crocheted yourself.
- Gift Idea: A hand-crocheted Thanksgiving square makes for a thoughtful gift for friends and family.
- Because You Want To: And finally, you can crochet one just because you feel like crocheting! Which is my personal favorite reason why!
Materials You’ll Want
Below are a few of the supplies or tools you may need to crochet a Thanksgiving square. Make sure to look over the pattern you do pick to make sure of the exact materials you’ll need for that particular square design.
- Cotton yarns for coasters and table decor.
- Wool or acrylic yarn for wall hangings or quilts.
- A 4 mm-5 mm hook is generally good for tighter stitches, but you will find patterns that use bigger hooks. Always check the pattern for the correct crochet hook size needed.
- Larger hooks for a looser square and for patterns that require bulkier yarn.
- Scissors for cutting the yarn ends of the squares.
- Darning Needle (aka yarn needle) to weave in those pesky ends. Definitely not my favorite part.
- Handy for tracking your place in some square patterns, especially if there is an intricate design to work.
What to Do With Your Squares
- Coasters: Practical and cute. Use cotton yarn so they’re absorbent, plus they are an easy way to decorate for Thanksgiving.
- Wall Art: Frame your square or attach multiple for a more intricate Fall design.
- Table Runner: Join multiple squares to run the length of your table. Totally a showstopper!
- Pillows: Two large squares can make a decorative pillowcase or throw pillow for your couch.
- Pot Holders: Make a big square, and you’ve got a kitchen helper that’s both pretty and functional.
