I start where the head is tied.

Please note that the right sides are on the outside, and all the threads remain inside.

Leave a small hole for stuffing. Stuff the body of the turtle and then tie Sc

Total for the circle we have 42 Sc Next, we will make a beautiful edging of the back Without cutting the thread, we continue to knit

We finish knitting, cut the thread and hide it

We tighten the turtle’s eyes and shape its face

– Pull the eyes down

We insert a needle and thread under the chin near the neck, we remove under the eye from the outside, then we also introduce under the eye, but from the inside and we bring it out where started under the chin, retreating 1 column.

Tighten and tie a knot

Now we do the same with the second eye.

– now let’s pull our eyes together

To do this, we also insert the needle from below and bring it out under the eye with the inside, then we introduce above the eye from the inside sides, then lead to the second eye from above from the inner sides and enter from below from the inside and leave already down under the chin.

We stretch the threads, correct the eyes, make them cute facial expression)

We tie the threads and hide them inside the head.

Embroider the whites of the eyes with white yarn

Embroider eyelashes and nostrils with black thread

We embroider rosy cheeks with pink yarn

Using a couple of stitches we sew the neck to the back so that the head does not
