Sea Turtle


This sea turtle is another pattern from PlanetJune. It was slightly more challenging and took a bit more time to make than the platypus.

The flippers had some challenging shaping which, when I followed the pattern to the letter created a strange twist. After three attempts I ended up ignoring the pattern and putting the increases and decreases in where I thought they should go. At least there were plenty of helpful photos so you knew what you had to end up with.


I had to make 10 hexagons for the top of the shell and then 10 for the bottom and stitch them all together.


Assembling the turtle was also pretty challenging Рhandling it all while crocheting through 3 layers got a bit awkward at times.

But he came together in the end and I think is pretty cute! I used buttons for eyes.
