I wanted to make my daughter a turtle family. She has decided that she wants to “collect” them. I am sure she will collect these just like every other animal she can think of. 😉
I searched online for free patterns for a good hour! Once I finally found this cute pattern, I knew it was the one because it was simple enough to be able to make my own adjustments.
To get the different sizes, I just used different yarn weights with the appropriate hook size. I may also try out some bulky yarn tonight!
I did add an additional SC row at the end of the head/neck. I also made tails for the turtles… each one I did differently or I would share with you how I did them. I love this pattern!! I can easily finish a turtle in about an hour or two.. depending on how many times I have to be a mom while I am trying to crochet. Haha!
Thank you so much for sharing! I enjoy turtles and when we didn’t have a lot of money while growing up one Christmas I used all the scraps I could find from Grandma Doris and I made neighbors stuffed turtle rattles for extra money. I worked so hard and didn’t make much but it was more than I started with. I used diet butter containers with popcorn inside and glued the top on. These reminded me of that Christmas of the turtles with ruffles! It will be a fond memory for you and your Daughter.
