Amigurumi Turtles

By K W Warburton, The Reluctant Spoonie

I made a bunch of these for my first batch of items I sent to Spoonie Survival Kits. I used Mariner yarns in one of their mermaid shades for the shells and pastel yellow, purple and blue for the heads and legs. Spoonie Survival Kits is a great charity that sells kits specifically for those with a chronic illness and they donate 50% of all sales to a chosen chronic illness charity. Their current kits include insomnia, chronic fatigue and chronic pain. In addition to a Christmas themed kit during the holiday season.

These little turtles are easy to make and look great in a range of colours. Check out Mariner yarn’s full selection in the links below.
