My nephew, Benji, is sick. 😦 I have decided to make him a stuffed animal. I am praying over it as I make it. My BIL says that Benji LOVES turtles, so I hope this little guy makes him happy.

I’m using Red Heart Soft Baby in Lime for the body and a size E hook.

The pattern comes from June 2005 issue of Crochet World. It’s called “Baby Misty Turtle” (Interesting because Benji’s mommy’s name is Misty), designed by Fran Goreham. It’s on page 33 for those of you with this issue.

The color I chose for the shell is a variegated white, green, yellow and a purple/blue. Other than that, the colors I chose are the same as the pattern.

I’m excited and can’t wait to see how he turns out.
