Variation on a Theme

Leave a comment


The other day (whilst on an energy drink high) I had the great idea to make a series of turtles.

(Why turtles? No idea)

All are based on two patterns: the Tiny Striped Turtle by Kristie and the Itty Bitty Turtle by Rachel. Both are available as a free Ravelry download, be sure to check them out.

To class the place up a bit, I’ve added a video for your listening pleasure as you scroll through this post.

So click play and be prepared to witness the awesome.

I started simple, choosing to first create a turtle that had no stripes in order to get a feel for the pattern.

Then came the striped version, a little more difficult to create, but not too bad.

Rainbows always make me happy. The best thing about variegated yarn is that it self patterns, yay for no color changes!

This one has inverted colors for the eyes and head. It looks a little spooky to me.

Changed the shell so that it was flatter. It made the head look a little huge, but big heads are in.

This was by far the hardest to make, and the reason I didn’t get to make 12 turtles to go along with each variation of the song. It features a white shell with a rainbow spiral. The spiral goes around the outside of the shell, but was worked using the white and rainbow yarn at the same time.

And there you have it, six variations on the turtle. Keep your eye out for another post featuring six more. ^_^
