Notes:-
  • This crochet Little Sea Turtle are special order from my BFF. Gauge is not important – just keep a consistent tension throughout the entire project.
  • Crochet in a spiral. Use something to mark the first stitch of a round, and move it up as you work.
  • “The Magic Circle” is use to start each piece. Alternative technique: ch 2, then sc x6 into the second chain away from the hook. Slip stitch to join the round. This creates Round 1.
