The first pattern I fell in love with from my vintage crochet book was this adorable turtle.  I made a few modifications and came up with this.



Because I liked to take things apart as a child, I made the shell removable.


I also made this little matching hat.  The original pattern was for knitting but I used this basket weave crochet stitch instead.  Yes, Yeltsin is modelling for me.


Thanks for looking.  Please comment.

this is really cute!!!  I love that his shell comes off, but feel a little sorry for him when he is "naked"

Great job!!

I have that pattern, too! I didn't realize he had a body. I thought it was just stuffed. So, that's what a turtle looks like without a shell! I saw you gloves too. What other patterns are you making from the book?
