Tuck – Free Pattern!

March 16, 2010

Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,

I am so excited to finally bring you the free pattern for Tuck! He’s an adorable little turtle that does a slick trick. You can tuck in his feet, tail and head under his shell! I love toys that actually do something fun, don’t you?

Above you can see Tuck all tucked in. The bottom of the shell and the top of the shell are knitted in one piece. Then the head, legs and tail are all picked up and knit right on.

Then a separate bottom layer is knit up and whipstitched on leaving gaps to tuck in the head, feet and tail.

He is a wonderful little masterpiece and you can easily make one (or two, or even three), too! Here is some information you might like to know about Tuck the Turtle:

 

Finished measurements: Shell only, 3 inches long, 2 inches high

Yarn: Spud & Chloë Sweater(55% superwash wool, 45% organic cotton; 100 grams/160 yards), 1 skein each of Grass #7502 and Turtle #7514

Needles: US size 6 double-pointed needles, set of 4 or size to obtain gauge

Gauge: 5 ½ stitches per inch in stockinette stitch

Materials:

Ruler or tape measure

Yarn needle

Scissors

Stitch marker

Small amount of fiberfill

Optional: small amount of poly-pellets (Can be a choking hazard for babies and toddlers if not enclosed in a bag before putting inside the toy.)

Black embroidery floss

 

I added some sweet and quick embroidery on the top of the shell. It is such a good finishing touch but it is optional. Maybe your turtle will have a stripey shell or a polka dot shell or a multi-color shell! Who knows? The sky is the limit.

Have fun! I’ll be back very soon with lots more fun stuff.

Happy spring, everyone.
