This listing is for 2 original crochet patterns (Baby Sea Turtle Appliqué and Baby Sea Turtle Hatchlings) by June Gilbank.
Please note: if you've already bought one of these patterns, don't use this listing! Just pick the one you want:
BABY SEA TURTLE APPLIQUÉ DETAILS
A realistic flat baby sea turtle embellishment. This pattern is much faster to crochet than an amigurumi turtle and, with only two pieces, needs almost no sewing or finishing. You can stitch it securely to a blanket (or anything else), and the optional embroidered eyes make it child-friendly and easy to launder.
This pattern includes full written instructions for the turtle, plus round-by-round charted stitch diagrams for the rounds that form the head and flippers, in both right- and left-handed versions. It also includes simple assembly instructions for attaching the shell, a complete step-by-step tutorial for embroidering the eyes securely with no visible knots or tails, and tips for stitching the turtles neatly to a crocheted blanket.
BABY SEA TURTLE HATCHLING DETAILS
This Expansion Pack includes all the modifications required to crochet flat appliqué versions of a hatching turtle emerging from its egg and a half-submerged swimming turtle, plus the pattern for a turtle egg appliqué.
DETAILS FOR BOTH PATTERNS
You can stitch these appliqués to anything, and, as an example, they make a perfect addition to a beach or ocean-themed blanket, like my Turtle Beach blanket!
Yarn: worsted weight yarn in colours as pictured or any other colours you like
Hook: US E / 3.5mm
Size: full turtles approx 4.5-5” (11.5-13cm) long; hatchlings approx 4.5-5” (11.5-13cm) across

The Turtle Beach Collection
This pattern is part of my Turtle Beach Collection - you can mix and match patterns within the collection to make your own custom blanket.
- Mix and match colour schemes and stripe patterns with the Classic Blue and Teal Ombré blankets.
- Add custom details (an edging and puffy 3D seafoam effect) with the Seafoam & Edging Expansion Pack (or the original donationware blanket pattern).
- Add any combination of the original 3D stuffed baby sea turtles, the new flat appliqué turtles, and puffy or flat starfish.
Tip: For the best price, buy the multipacks of both blanket patterns and both sea turtle options!
