The Runaway Menagerie: Mama & Baby Tortoise

Crochet
April 2010
Aran / 10 ply (8 wpi) ?

The animals have escaped the zoo and are on their own adventures! The pandas are spending the day in the park while the lion signs up for the circus, and the monkey is taking his show on the road while the tortoises make a trip to the seashore. Everyone is having a grand old time—and so can you, if you stitch up your own zoo crew!
