This pattern is available from for $3.00.

(The full name of this pattern is Simple-Shell Tortoise, Turtle & Terrapin Expansion Pack - it’s too long for the Ravelry title field!)

Please note this is NOT a complete pattern: this is an EXPANSION PACK for my Tortoise pattern. It includes all the modifications required to crochet a Tortoise (blunt nose) or freshwater Turtle or Terrapin (pointed nose) much more quickly than the original Tortoise, with a plain or decorative one-piece upper shell, and a same- or different-coloured lower shell. Mix-and-match between all the options!

Yarn: worsted weight yarn in two to four colours (brown, tan, beige, orange, green, black etc for a realistic tortoise/turtle/terrapin, or any other colours you like).

Hook: E US/3.5mm

Size: approx 8.5” (21.5cm) long

Eyes: 9mm

You can buy the Tortoise pattern together with this expansion pack at a reduced price here.

Or if you already have the Tortoise pattern, the pattern link on this page will let you buy just the Simple-Shell Tortoise, Turtle & Terrapin Expansion Pack.

What is an Expansion Pack?

  • An Expansion Pack is an add-on to an existing PlanetJune pattern.
  • The Expansion Pack lets you modify or add to the original pattern to create something else.
  • You cannot use the Expansion Pack alone - you must also purchase the original pattern in order to be able to complete the pictured items in the Expansion Pack pattern.
