Who knew you’d need to knit a sweet little turtle toy? Well, now you can. It’s so fun to dress it up with the shell and other accessories! The finished toy is about 8-9" tall, and all pieces are knit flat, then seamed and assembled. The pattern is advanced-beginner to intermediate level. There are many fun techniques in this pattern, so it could be a good chance to learn or practice new skills.
