Thanksgiving is just around the corner and a great gift you can offer your Thanksgiving host is a little knitted something or other to show them you appreciate all of the hard work that went into the biggest meal of the year. You could knit some of these fabulous pumpkins (especially the chevron striped one) or you could check out some of our favorite thanksgiving turkey knitting patterns. Your hostess will thank you for the thoughtful and useful gift!
