Our geese love dressing up for the different seasons and holidays.
I had designed an elaborate turkey costume for my parent’s Goose and it is super cute.
It was getting close to Thanksgiving last year and Ducke (my goose) kept asking for his costume. I didn’t have time to make another one so I tried a simpler version. I had just finished my Christmas Tutu so I made a brown one to match. I LOVE how this turned out. I think it would be really cute with different fall colors for the tutu. I just didn’t have any.

With an H hook and white yarn, create a magic circle of 8 sc sts (or preferred method of creating a circle of 8 sc sts), pull to close and sl st to join. Finish off, leaving a long tail for sewing in place. (8sts)
With a yarn needle, use the yarn tails to sew the bottom edge of each eye to the hood. Leave the top half unsewn so the eyes will stand away from the hood slightly when on the goose.
With a sewing needle and black thread, sew a black button on top of each eye piece.
Pompom “Hair”: Cut a piece of brown yarn 12” long. This will be used to tie around the middle of the pompom. Set aside.
- Wrap a strand of yarn around the palm of your hand 20 times.
- Carefully slide the loops off your hand.
- Use the 12” piece to wrap around the middle of the yarn loops and snugly tie a knot.
- Hold onto the ends of this piece of yarn.
- Trim the loops and pom as desired.
- Use the yarn tails to tie it to the top of the hood.
- Pull the top half of the yarn pieces apart for a frizzy look.

Fold the top (skinny) 1/3 of the length of the waddle in half. With a yarn needle and matching yarn, sew the edges together. Sew the first part of this section below the eyes so it lays across the goose’ beak.
