Another original creation. Here's my pattern, I would give you the link to the pattern page but Yahoo keeps saying I've exceeded my data transfer.  another pattern I made all by myself. It's a great way to save money, since body wash can get expensive and yummy soap is cheaper, and this guy keeps you from dropping soap, wasting soap, all that annoying sudsy stuff. So here's the Pattern: F hook, two colors of worsted weight yarn, yarn needle. Mark end of round with hairpin .

Rnd 1. Ch2, 4 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 2 sc in each sc.
Rnd 2. 1 sc in next sc, 2sc in next sc.
Rnd 3.1 sc in each of next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc.
Rnd 4. sc in each sc.
Rnd 5. 1 sc in next sc, decrease over next 2 sc.
Rnd 6.sc in every sc.
Rnd 7. Decrease over every 2 sc. Stuff head with a little fiberfill, pick up a loop in each sc, yo and pull through all loops on hook. (When you're all done with him, sew his head to his neck more securely.)
Rnd 8. Ch2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook.
Rnd 9. 2 sc in each sc.
Rnd 10. 1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc.
Rnd 11. Ch3, 2 dc in each sc, join to ch3..
Rnd 12. Ch 4, skip next sc, dc in next sc, *ch 1, skip next sc, dc in next sc.*
Rnd 13. Ch 6, skip ch sp,trc in next dc, *ch 2, trc in next dc* For as many rows as you need to fit your soap. Err on the side of too big, it makes better suds when you use him. I made 5 rows of this. For the last row, don't make the ch 2 between trcs. Fasten off.

Flippers: Fold him flat and attach yarn at neck. 8 sc along side, ch 1, turn.7 hdc. Ch2, turn, 7 dc. Ch 2, turn, 5 dc and one dc decrease over last two stitches. Ch2 turn, one dc decrease, 4 dc. Ch2 turn, 3 dc, one decrease. Ch2 turn, one decrease, 2 dc. Fasten off. Repeat on other side.

Attach light green at neck and sc around the shell over neck and flippers.

Cut a piece of dark green yarn and thread it through the last row where his bottom is. Put your soap in and pull the string tight, knot it, and tie another knot in the end to hang him in your shower with. I even found green soap, Tone Cucumber Melon!

Turtlelicious.

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

It's fantastic!!!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE turtles!  thank you for posting the pattern.  I have some dark green yarn and I am totally going to make this!!!  it's totally turtlelicious!!!

great job!

btw, I don't know why, but in the post, I couldn't see your picture (oddly, now I can see it in the reply).  But I wanted to see it to badly that I right-clicked on where the picture should be, saw the properties, copy and pasted the url into a new browser window and there it was!  so darn cute!

Oh lord. I did nesting ecology with the Leatherbacks in Equatorial Guinea. I have fallen in love with them, and this inspires me to want to learn how to do this. <3

Just saw this on the blog.
Great idea, and very cute.

I think I may need to make some of these for Christmas gifts.
