Turtles! Tortoises! Terrapins!

Whatever your preferred name for shell-bedecked reptiles, this little guy provides plenty of protection for little messy eaters.

This is a crochet pattern suitable for intermediate crocheters, and involves the following techniques:

  • Working in rounds and working in rows
  • The following crochet stitches: ch, sc, hdc, dc, tr, sl st
  • Clean Fasten off (instructions for this are included with the pattern)

Finished bib size is about 11.5” x 8”, and takes about 150 yards of worsted weight yarn.
