Offset off making ii “African Flower hexagons” .
There are already several tutorials (and even youtube-videos) explaining this, I would recommend HeidiBears tutorial if yous haven’t tried making 1 earlier as it is very throughout.

Make one hexagon using several colors (of your option) and one unicolor (this is going to be the bottom of the turtle), and then I picked a rather light color -pink. And – brand two rows of dc.

You should be familiar with most basic crochet techniques. And also the “magic ring”.
Inc=invisible increase
Dec=invisible subtract
For explanation on how to practice the invisible decrease/increase (and other useful tips) please cheque out this page on Amigurumi nuts.

The turtle measure out approx. 15 cm from head to dorsum when used a 2.5 mm hook (and schachenmayr SMC Catania yarn; 50g=125m)

This is going to be “the stuffing” of the turtle, and merely the edge will exist visible when yous’re done with your turtle.
Normally I like to spread increases when making a circumvolve, merely for this it’s ok – fifty-fifty preferable to increase in the beginning of each circular as it will resemble more of a hexagon shape.

Option up the multicolored flower you made earlier. Turn the blossom. Hook through bottom of the last circular of dc. Using same color (in my example – green) attach thread with a sl st, then sc all the way around. Practice this until you lot’ve fabricated 4 rounds of sc. The adjacent (5th) circular increase respective to every hexagon angel (a full of 6).

Completed one round of sc
Completed i round of sc

Now nosotros’re going to attach the beat out to the rest of the turtle. Put the shell on top of the turtle bottom/trunk. Claw through both loops last round of shell and through front loops of body (blue) and sc all the manner around.

How to attach

add the crush edge; 5dc in 2nd ch from claw, skip one st, sl st in next, skip 1 st, 5dc in next, skip ane st, sl st … and continue in the aforementioned pattern all the mode. You may have to do some small-scale adjustments (skip two st at some betoken) because the numbers probably don’t add together up 100%, but there shouldn’t be any major trouble. Weave in all loose ends and you’re done!

How to exercise the edge

You’re done!
