Atuin the turtle is the eleventh of my patterns that makes use of the African Flower hexagon crochet motif and variations thereof, joined in a specific order to make a recognizable 3D item. I love this African Flower pattern and the creative possibilities of using it to make 3D items :) Atuin is an excellent stash buster project, as you only need to use very small amounts of leftover sock yarn to make a motif.
The pattern is a step by step photo and instruction tutorial on how to make Atuin the turtle.
