Materials for both turtles:

Worsted Weight yarn in 1 solid color (for turtles body), 1 variegated yarn (for shell), and a small amount of a solid color for eyes.
Size E hook
Stitch Marker
Polyfil

Finish Sizes:
Turtle-2 ½”h x 2 ½”w x 4 ¼” Long
Tiny Baby Turtle: 1 ¼”h x 1 ½”w x 1 ¾” Long

Different Stitches:
Dc Popcorn stitch: 5 dc in next st, take hook out of loop, stick hook into loops of 1st dc, then stick hook in loop from before, pull up loop thru loops of 1st dc and ch1.
Sc Popcorn stitch: 5 sc in next st, take hook out of loop, stick hook into loops of 1st sc (in 5 sc group), then stick hook in loop from before, pull up loop thru loops of 1st sc and ch1.
Picot: Ch2, sc in 2nd chain from hook.

Notes:

When doing my sc decreases, sometimes I do them in the front loops only. It helps minimize the hole sometimes left when decreasing.

Directions for Turtle:

Body:

Rnd 1: With Solid color yarn Ch2, 6 sc in 2nd chain from hook crocheting over tail. Join with a sl st to first sc. Pull tale to close hole. (6sc)
Rnd 2: Ch1, 2 sc in same st as joining, [2 sc in next st] Do this 5 times. Join with a sl st to first sc. (12sc)
Rnd 3: Ch1, 2 sc in same st as joining, 1 sc in next st, [2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next st] Do this 5 times. Join with sl st to first sc. (18sc)
Rnd 4: Ch1, 1 sc in same st as joining, 1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st, [1 sc in each of the next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st] Do this 5 times. Join with sl st to first sc. (24sc)
Rnd 5: Ch1, sc in same st as joining, 1 sc in each of the next 2 sts, Dc Popcorn st in next st, 1 sc in each of the next 4 sts, Dc Popcorn st in next st, 1 sc in each of the next 6 sts, Dc Popcorn st in next st, 1 sc in each of the next 4 sts, Dc Popcorn st in next st, 1 sc in each of the next 3 sts. Join with sl st to first sc. (4 Dc Popcorn sts, 20sc) (24sts total)
Rnd 6: Ch4, sl st in 2nd chain from hook, sl st in each of the next 2 chains. (This will be the tail.) Sc in same st as joining, 1 sc in each of the next 23 sts. Join with sl st to first sc. (Make sure the tail is pointing out when joining) (24sc)
Rnd 7: Ch1, sc in same st as joining, 1 sc in each of the next 23 sts. Join with sl st to first sc. (24sc)
Finish off and weave in ends.


Head:

Rnd 1: With Solid color yarn Ch2, 9 sc in 2nd chain form hook (crocheting over tail) Join with sl st to first sc. Pull tail to close hole. (9sc)
Rnd 2: Ch1, sc in same st as joining, 1 sc in each of the next 8 sts. Join with sl st to first sc. (9sc)
Rnd 3: Repeat Rnd 2 (of Head) (9sc)
Rnd 4: Ch1, sc in same st as joining, sc decrease next 2 sts together, [1 sc in next st, sc decrease next 2 sts together] Do this twice. Join with sl st to first sc. (6sc)
Rnd 5: Ch1, sc in same st as joining, 1 sc in each of the next 5 sts. Join with sl st to first sc. (6sc)
Finish off leaving a long tail for sewing.

Stuff head some. With tail sew head to the front of the body. This will be in between the two legs (Dc Popcorns sts) with 6 sc in between. (opposite side of tail). Finish off and weave in ends.

Embroider eyes onto head using a different solid color yarn.

Notes:
The Shell is worked in a continuous spiral, do not join unless specified.
Mark the first stitch of the round and move it up as you go along, to keep track.


Shell:

Rnd 1: With Variegated yarn Ch2 (leaving a tail), 6 sc in 2nd chain from hook crocheting over tail. (6sc)
Pull tail taut to close starting hole.
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st around. (12sc)
Rnd 3: [1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st] Do this 6 times. (18sc)
Rnd 4: 1 sc in each st around. (18sc)
Rnd 5: [2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of the next 2 sts] Do this 6 times. (24sc)
Rnd 6: 1 sc in each st around. (24sc)
Rnd 7: 1 sc in each st around. (24sc)
Sl st in next st, ch1 and turn.

You will now be joining the shell to the body. Hold shell and body together, you will be working through both thicknesses of Sc of Rnd 7 (of Body) and Rnd 7 (of shell). Hold shell and body together. 1 sc in each of the sts around till there is a small opening. Stuff turtle and then finish doing sc around. Join with sl st to first sc Finish off and weave in ends. (24sc)

Directions for Tiny Baby Turtle:

Body:

Rnd 1: With Solid color yarn Ch2, 6 sc in 2nd chain from hook crocheting over tail. Join with a sl st to first sc. Pull tale to close hole. (6sc)
Rnd 2: Ch1, 2 sc in same st as joining, [2 sc in next st] Do this 5 times. Join with a sl st to first sc. (12sc)
Rnd 3: Ch1, sc in same st as joining, sc in next st, Sc Popcorn st in next st, sc in next st, Sc Popcorn st in next st, sc in next st, Dc Popcorn st in next st, sc in next st, Sc Popcorn st in next st, sc in next st, Sc Popcorn st in next st, sc in next st. Join with a sl st to first sc. (7sc, 4 Sc Popcorn sts, 1 Dc Popcorn st) (12sts total)
Note: The Dc Popcorn st will be the turtles head.
Rnd 4: Picot in same st as joining (the picot will be your tail), sc in same st, 1 sc in each of the next 11 sts. Join with sl st to first sc. (Make sure the picot is pointing out) (12sc)
Finish off and weavein ends.

With different color solid yarn embroider eyes. What I did for the baby turtle’s eyes is before I pull the loop through the first dc of the Dc Popcorn st, I wrap the different solid yarn around the 2nd and 4th dc of the 5 dc group, tie the yarn off. Then I finish up the Dc Popcorn st.

Notes:
The Shell is worked in a continuous spiral, do not join unless specified.
Mark the first stitch of the round and move it up as you go along, to keep track.

Shell:

Rnd 1: With Variegated yarn Ch2 (leaving a tail), 6 sc in 2nd chain from hook crocheting over tail. (6sc)
Pull tail taut to close starting hole.
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st around. (12sc)
Rnd 3: 1 sc in each st around. (12sc)
Sl st in next st, ch1 and turn.

You will now be joining the shell to the body. Hold shell and body together, you will be working through both thicknesses of Sc of Rnd 4 (of Body) and Rnd 3 (of shell). Hold shell and body together. 1 sc in each of the sts around till there is a small opening. Stuff turtle and then finish doing sc around. Join with sl st to first sc. Finish off and weave in ends.

You can do whatever you want with the finish item you make. You can sell the finish item, or make it for charity, or make it as a gift. Whatever floats your boat. If you do sell the item online, do not use my photo, make your own and take a picture of that.

Note: I would not recommend making the Tiny Baby Turtle for a baby or a child still putting things in its mouth. As it is pretty tiny and could be a choking hazard.
