I whipped this little guy up this morning! If you find any errors, please let me know! Enjoy! The turtles measure 2 inches tall, and about 3 1/2 inches from nose to tail.   Tiny Striped Turtle

Oh my word! A turtle soap holder! Man, that would be cute! If you make it, I'd be interested in seeing pics!

 

I'll definitely post pix if I do this ... first I need to try it out with #10 thread and see how it sizes up ... if your pattern needs much changing I'll let you know what I did so you can copy it if you like

Kristie first I'd like to say I love the little turtles. Second, I'd like to say how incredibly talented you are for creating this wonderful pattern and giving it to everyone for free.

 

Now here comes my craziness. I'm admittedly new to crocheting, and especially having trouble with ANY amigurumi I come across, but I really would like to make these turtles. My 15 month old loves them.

 

Anyway, I'm going to just write out the pattern as I understand it, and you can come behind me and correct anything that I am doing wrong if you wouldn't mind.

 

I am also wondering if you have a good website with a good tutorial for using 2 different colors in your pattern. I tried it earlier, but I got confused and just frogged the whole project because I didn't know what in the world I was doing. Thanks!

 

Each round will end up with a slip-stitch to the first single crochet made in that row (I'm guessing this is made into the single crochet, not the chain made at the beginning of the row, lol)

Thank you for the compliment!!

I just had a chance to skim though your interpretation quickly.

It looks like you have the basic idea of the pattern.

If you miss a stitch, or add an extra one in, it isnt a big deal. They dont look much different.:)

 

I dont know offhand a tutorial on changing colors. One easy way is to finish off one color, and join with a slip stitch in any sc with another color.

Ch 1, and continue on.

 

I just posted another pattern for everyone!

What can I say... these were just the cutest. I understand that after joining this site I do not have the time for any work. You inspire me too much :yay I just have to add these on my " what to do " list.

 

Love them and thanks for sharing with us.

Just found your pattern and now know what I can make for small "winter gifts" - like to do that when it's cold and dreary outside. Since the University where I work has a turtle for our mascot these are perfect!!! Thank you for sharing, Deborah S-A

I just printed it off yesterday, then sat down and made it. It's so cute! The recipient, a 2 year old boy, was thrilled. Thanks. I also made your pig last year which was equally enthused over, you have some great ideas and are generous to share. Zaraliz
