Sheldon the Turtle

Welcome to the first Little Muggles Amigurumi Crochet Along!! This little turtle is fun, cute and simple to create!  This design is simple enough for beginners to make, but also has a lot of potential for the more seasoned amigurumist! (Think embellishments, shell patterns, etc…) For those who are not familiar with a Crochet Along, it is very simple.  Basically, any number of interested people can use this FREE pattern to “crochet along” with each other!   That is, you can share your progress with your fellow crocheters, ask questions, post pictures, basically just share your thoughts and your amigurumi making experience with everyone!   The most fun part is seeing everyone’s finished works!  Everyone is free to use whatever yarn colors, gauges, decorations, etc.. that he/she prefers!  Doesn’t this sound incredibly fun?  I encourage everyone to Crochet Along with me!

I have named my turtle Sheldon!  He is approximately 4.5 inches(12 cm) high and 6 inches (15cm) long.  He makes a cute little decoration for any room or a super unique and adorable gift for anyone of any age!!

There’s more!

As an added bonus to the fun, I have decided to enter everyone who submits a picture of their turtle into a random drawing at the close of this Crochet Along!  One winner will receive a FREE pattern of their choice from my Etsy shop!  Who can resist another cool amigurumi project, right?  The winner will be announced on my Facebook page!

Here’s what you need to do!

  1. Spread the word!  Share the news of this Crochet Along with your friends and fellow crochet pals!  If you “share” my Facebook post about this Crochet Along and submit a picture of your doll, your name will be entered TWICE into the drawing!! That’s an extra chance to win!
  2. Get your materials and start crocheting!!  A list of what you need can be found in the pattern itself!
  3. After you are done, take plenty of pictures and email me your favorite one at, or post your best pics on my Facebook page!  Remember to include your name, your turtle’s name, and where you are from in your entry!!
