Spencer is an inquisitive little tortoise; you can knit your own tortoise buddy with this pattern.

THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the tortoise, photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 4 pages and written in English.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat on a pair of straight knitting needles, apart from the shell trim which is an i-cord tube knitted on two double pointed needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams. This pattern incorporates knitted bobbles for the toes (instructions on how to knit a bobble are included), and a three needle bind off.

  • Two 3.5mm DPNs (US 4)
