NOTE: EU purchasers MUST purchase my patterns here: Wanting to make a gift for a little boy's turtle-themed room was the inspiration for the design of adorable, all-boy, Poke Turtle, dressed in the colors of the room. This soon blossomed to another, more feminine, frilly, darling turtle, Shelly. Sitting approx. 10 1/4" without their sweet removable hats, both are knit in the round, using #4-worsted wt. yarn. They have movable arms and legs and are ready to "get up and go" for some fun! With their sweet smiles, they're hard to resist! PATTERN CORRECTION: Page 7 (Poke's Hat) Row 24: Sl1, k2tog, (k2, m1) x 4, k3, (m1, k2) x 4, k2tog through the back loops, k1 = 31 sts BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit, Purl, Increase, Decrease, Cast-on, Bind-off GAUGE Gauge is not critical for this project.
