Today’s post is a little bit random. Turtles. My sisters and I used to have a pet turtle and her name was Murtle (yeah, I know, super creative). I guess since then I’ve had a love for turtles – I even got a small turtle tattoo on my back when I was 22. And, aside from swimming with dolphins, I swam with sea turtles and walked among them on the beach in Hawaii. Honestly, best thing ever. Anyway, after a friend shared this link with me I wanted to crochet a turtle so I could make cute outfits for it because really, I don’t see myself getting another live pet turtle any time soon. So I started crocheting and then I got creative and ended up making a Secret Turtle Box!

*Update: I’ve updated the pattern to include the number of pentagons as well as when to attach eyes and begin stuffing fibrefill.
*Update: There were some instructions missing for the final round in the pentagon motif in the original post. Pattern has been updated – 5/02/14
