Description: Not as shy as her cousins Bitty and Timmy, Terra feels like the boys just need a good cheering on in the competition against their long-time rivals the Hares. Although not technically a tortoise, Terra has long held the belief that a sea turtle can still play with the big tortoises. She is currently stocking up on Gatorade and pom poms to prepare for cheering the boys (and herself) on.
She is also ridiculously proud of the family legend of the sea turtle who carried the earth on it’s back (along with a couple few elephants) and will talk at length about it to anyone who looks like they might even half-listen.

Gauge is not a critical factor for this project. If desired, it can be made with any size hook and with any weight of yarn. Adjust hook size/yarn size to obtain desired fabric. I am a very tight crocheter and you may find that you need to go down a hook size or two to eliminate unsightly holes in your toy. You may also require more yarn than I use.
