From the pattern:
Turtles remind me of going to northern Minnesota in the summers as a child. We used to see turtles by the lake all the time. Thee design of the shell has always intrigued me, and it is often colorful and beautiful. Here, the little turtles are crocheted circles with colorful embroidery on top. Adding the turtles is a fun way to liven up this simple orange hat.
