Simple-Shell Tortoise, Turtle & Terrapin is an original EXPANSION PACK for the Tortoise crochet pattern by June Gilbank.
What is an Expansion Pack?
- An Expansion Pack is an add-on to an existing PlanetJune pattern.
- The Expansion Pack lets you modify or add to the original pattern to create something else.
- You cannot use the Expansion Pack alone - you must also purchase the original pattern in order to be able to complete the pictured items in the Expansion Pack pattern.
This Expansion Pack includes all the modifications required to crochet a Tortoise (blunt nose) or freshwater Turtle or Terrapin (pointed nose) much more quickly than the original Tortoise, with a plain or decorative one-piece upper shell, and a same- or different-coloured lower shell. Mix-and-match between all the options!
Yarn: worsted weight yarn in two to four colours (brown, tan, beige, orange, green, black etc for a realistic tortoise/turtle/terrapin, or any other colours you like).
Hook: E US/3.5mm
Size: approx 8.5" (21.5cm) long
Tip: To save money, if you haven't already purchased Tortoise, don't purchase this item - instead buy the Tortoise multipack!
