I’m sure many of you are taking up crocheting during your stay at home order. As you look for things to crochet, you find the cuter the things you can create! We found a pattern for a crochet turtle with a removable shell!
Turtles are such a cute animal, but when you add a removable shell, it takes its cuteness to a whole other level!
For this crochet pattern, it says that you do need to be at an intermediate skill level to crochet this turtle. The main reason is that you have to be familiar with the terminology associated with crocheting.
For example, some terminology you might see:
- MR – magic ring
- sc – single crochet

The creator of this pattern has made a YouTube video for part of the instructions. She shows how to connect the hexagon on the shell together as it is a bit challenging. This is a big help especially for those who are more visual learners like myself.
The pattern comes as a PDF, which has 46 very detailed pages on instructions. It also has 34 pictures to show the step-by-step process to create this cute creature.
