When Zach and his crew were here on Memorial Day and Dax and I were playing in the “Doll Room”, he was enjoying the stuffed dogs (mostly schnauzers with a yorkie or two and a couple of pound puppies) and we had a chat about his upcoming move to a new house. He was excited because he gets to get a turtle or turtles, I’m not sure. As we talked he said he liked the dogs all right and the plastic octopus and dinosaur toy that I unearthed from a drawer, but “Do you have a turtle”? No, no turtles. As we played some more I got the question a couple more times “Do you have a turtle”? Sadly, I did not and not one to come up empty when it comes to cute 4 year olds I decided to knit him one.
So, when Dax comes over again I Got Turtle!
Pattern is here. I changed the head to make it smaller and eliminated the last increase row.
