Hand Held Critters: Tiny Turtle


This is an old design I’ve finally taken the time to add to my shop!


  • a pair of 6mm safety eyes (I recommend 6060 on Etsy)
  • small amount of Aran or Worsted weight yarn in two colors
  • yarn needle
  • 4mm hook (or size needed to ensure tight stitching, see Tips below)
  • Poly fiber fill stuffing (or stuffing of your choice)
  • a wooden chop stick – it’s a fabulous stuffing tool

Stitches (US Terms)-

  • Magic Ring
  • st(s) – stitch(es)
  • sl st – slip stich
  • rep – repeat
  • sc – single crochet
  • inv dec – single crochet invisible decrease: Insert hook front-to-back into the front loop of next stitch, then insert it front-to-back into the front loop of the next stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop (through both front loops) and make your sc stitch as usual.
