Tavistock Tortoise knitting pattern ...

Tavistock Tortoise is a handy little friend; I use my tortoise as a pincushion! This listing is for patterns for you to knit your own Tavistock Tortoise. You can choose whether to make the tortoise with long floppy legs, or short stumpy legs (as pictured); both styles are included in the pattern.

About the pattern ...

The knitting pattern is written row by row so it is easier for beginners to follow, includes a list of abbreviations and step by step construction details with photos to help you. The pattern is written in English. All pieces are knitted flat on straight needles.
