OMG!! You have to see this crocheted turtle! It is just about the cutest thing EVER to come across my computer, and I HAVE to have it.
Now, this is JUST the pattern, so you actually will have to make the little guy (gal?) yourself — or if you are like me, have someone else do if for you!
The skill level on this is “Intermediate,” and for good reason. You have to be familiar with a LOT of different crochet terminology.

She also has a video that you can use on YouTube, that shows how to connect the hexagons for the shell — because it can be kind of confusing.
Never fear, this PDF download comes with 46 detailed pages of instructions, that include 34 photos for help with step-by-step process.
The complete freakin’ cute turtle has a removable shell, and the little guy (gal?) stands 6 inches tall.
The PDF downloadable pattern runs $4.50, and you can get it right on the Toysneed page on Etsy.

I ordered your pattern and need help with the turtle shell being put together. The you tube link in the pattern does not work. Please help

This is adorable, yes. There were significant flaws in the pattern. I had to make the shell 3 different times and I ended up freehanding everything except the turtle body and legs. Just make sure you really know how to crochet before you buy it because you might have to figure some stuff out on your own.

My husband purchased this for me since he had PayPal, the instructions are not clear, the simple math of adding and subtracting are wrong on some of the steps, so you have to adjust and guess. I hope it turns out, I crochet for years, so I think I can correct errors. Something happened from converting to English, I am guessing.
