The shell’s center is Barbara Langer’s Little Spring Mandala. When I saw her cute motif, I thought it was great for a turtle’s shell. She was so kind to allow me to use her pattern for mine, thank you so much!

If you have any questions, please ask me.

Note: I uploaded a photo tutorial for the fins, since I’ve been asked for a more comprehensible explanation on how they were worked multiple times now. It’s just a simple one, with pretty bad pictures, it was made in a hurry, but should be helpful anyway;-)

Feel free to link this pattern. If you like to sell items made from my patterns, you may do it, but please honor me as the designer and treat this pattern as you would wish yours to be treated. So please do not sell this pattern. It was designed to be shared for free with people who love knitting and crocheting. Thanks!

The difference between the normal version and the printerfriendly version is that all the instructions in the printerfriendly version are in black, pictures are still in there, too.
