Crochet Turtle with 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
  • dc – double crochet
  • inc – increase
  • dec – decrease
  • hdc – half double crochet
  • 3-dc-bobble – bobble stitch
  • (12) – the number of sets in a row
  • (…)*n – repeat n times

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.

I bought this pattern. Sadly I lost it. I’m almost done with it. It will be adorable. I need to find the pattern so I can finish it.
