I have been crocheting since my babysitter sat her down one afternoon when I was 7 years old. More than 22 years later, I still loves to pick up a hook and yarn. all items made are her own original patterns.
I have two degrees (B.Sc. and M.Sc) in Biology. My university career taught me to be observant (the critical eye) and I use everyday observations, math, and my imagination when creating new designs.

Crochet your very own Thomas Turtle. Thomas is 4.5" long and 3" tall and this pattern is set an an easy level. Detailed instructions along with pictures explain how to add the accent, spiral embellishment to the shell. This pattern is clearly written using North American terms.
Thomas is made in 7 pieces: head , body, 4 legs and tail. this piece is worked in a continuous spiral. Do not join rounds.A stitch marker placed at either the beginning or the end of the round can help keep track of round in the spiral.
Stuff as you go (polyester filling, cotton, yarn scraps, etc.). Finish the piece by sewing together the parts and embroidering the eyes using a darning needle.
The pattern is sized to fit a 1.5" diameter rattle insert (optional)
