Pattern has been fully tested.

This adorable sea turtle is the perfect size for little hands to cuddle.

The colour work in the shell is a simple slip stitch pattern, which works up very quickly.

Maybe you’d like to make a cushion instead? Just use a chunky yarn and large needles…

Or a miniature version using sock yarn and tiny needles?

The possibilities are endless!

Turtle measures 36 cm (14 in) long and 27 cm (10 ½ in) wide.

Materials Required:

3 mm knitting needles (US 2 ½)
3 mm circular needles (US 2 ½)
Wool needle and stitch marker
2 x 20 mm (¾ in) safety eyes
Polyfill stuffing, 100g
