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.

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.
