With flowers in her hat and a thrill in her heart, Lady Shelly Yertle delights in playing matchmaker for others in sea society even though she has vowed to never marry. This young sea turtle has had brief flirtations, but has yet to realize that her one true love is none other than her close friend, Mr. Knittley.

The Legs, Head, and Shell are crocheted in continuous rounds while the Fancy Hat is crocheted in joined rounds. The Legs and Head are not sewn onto the Body, they are attached by crocheting them directly into one of the Bottom Shell’s rounds, making them more secure for any possible wear and tear made by little ones.
