Turtle

Knitting
May 2014
Aran (8 wpi) ?
20 stitches and 24 rows = 4 inches
in St st
US 6 - 4.0 mm
118 yards (108 m)
3" tall and 8" long

For all of the worsted weight toys in this book, I used a gauge of 20 sts and 24 rows = 4″ in stockinet stitch, which I achieved with US size 6 needles. For Cotton Fleece and Serendipity Tweed, I went down two sizes in needles, resulting in a different gauge, but producing a dense fabric suitable for knitted toys. It is extremely important, whatever yarn you are using, to produce a firm, dense fabric.

Colors used in the model:

  • M08 (Wild One)
  • M171 (Fresh Moss)
  • M13 (Sun Yellow)
  • M22 (Autumn Harvest)
  • M05 (Onyx)
