A friend from my co-op calls me and says, “Hey, my sister is a professional photographer and she loves the crocheted newborn photo probs. Can you make me a turtle?” I looked around the internet and found the pattern at HodgePodge Crochet
It is an easy-peasy pattern. I made the shell in a matter of days and then it took me almost two months to make the hats. That was because my life got busy. Anyhoo, I made two hats, because the one from the pattern looked way too small. I didn’t want my friend’s sister getting a photo prop that was not the right size.
Here is the turtle blanket being blocked. I don’t have a baby to try it on, so hopefully the photographer sister will send me a photo with the blanket in use.
I can’t remember what yarn I used. As soon as I remember I’ll update this post. I do know it is a washable yarn and has some wool in it.
Hope she likes it.
