A herd of turtles to crochet!

Several years ago, my friend Jamie designed a turtle washcloth pattern as part of a baby shower gift. She never wrote up a pattern for the cloth even though I begged her to do so. It's so cute! I finally asked and she gave me permission to write up my own version of the cloth. The matching coaster was my idea. :)

Have fun crocheting Nerdle (cloth) and baby (coaster) using two colors of cotton dishcloth cotton and a little black yarn for the eyes. These are quick and easy to make with leftover yarn or planned colors. You'll need about 15 yards per coaster and 25 per cloth and a size G (4 mm) crochet hook. The cloth measures 8" across and the coasters 4.5" I got 5 coasters and 1 cloth from a ball of Sugar 'n Cream and leftovers of a second color. I used Lily Sugar n’ Cream in Hot Green and Summer Splash. You’ll also need a little black yarn for the eyes. The pattern has written instructions and the head, tail, and feet for both patterns are also charted.

The pattern can be found in my Ravelry pattern store. All money from sale of this pattern will be donated to Pet Refuge.
