Pattern Description:

The pattern is available in English.

It describes the process of creating the African Flower toy/item by crocheting and constructing polygonal motifs in details. There are not only step by step photos, charts and schemes of constructing the motifs/parts to make the item but also its decoration.
Skill Level is moderately difficult.

My Hook sizes were:
1.25 mm
1.5 mm
2.5 mm

The pattern consists of 47 pages of pfd file:

The turtle was designed, produced and first posted in August of 2013.
The pattern was written in Russian in October of 2013
and translated into English in February of 2014
