Hey crochet peeps! Finally, I have a new pattern available!
Turt the Turtle!
Annoyingly, the other pattern I’ve been working on, which is on its 8th or 9th attempt, I put on hold to work on a turtle pattern. This turtle design came to me right away – I also came up with a flipper design.
With that said, my turtle design comes with two leg options:
Flipper leg Turt!
I like swimming!
Stumpy leg Turt!
I like cruising around at my own pace.
Both turtles are super cute and are enjoyable to make!
The only trouble I had with this pattern was creating the head. I wanted something a little tapered, but not complicated. Of course, I got complicated and it took a few tries to get the head just right. The legs and flippers were easy for me to figure out.
Shaping for the turtles came out very nice. I wanted to do a more realistic oval shell shape than the usual round amigurumi turtles out there.
These cutie turtles are on the small side, 5″ long and 4″ leg span with worsted yarn, so they are a fast crochet project – leaving you time to make a large nest of turtles!
