Baby turtle shell

Loom Knitted "Baby Turtle Shell & Hat" made by Darlene Bordon. Photos courtesy of Roxanne Marie Photography.

Darlene Bordon, one of my blog readers, contacted me at the end of April and said that someone wanted her to make a turtle shell back and matching hat for a photo prop - similar to this picture. Since she doesn't crochet, but does loom knit, Darlene thought my Baby Gran Hexagon pattern would work just fine and she mainly needed advice on how to seam the hexagonal motifs together. I suggested that she use either the mattress stitch or whip stitch. Lion Brand also as an excellent photo tutorial that has become my favorite on How to Invisibly Seam Granny Squares

As you can see, Darlene's loom knitted Baby Turtle Shell & Hat worked great! A big "Thank You!!!" to both Darlene and Roxanne Marie Photography for sharing these precious photos and their creativity.

Here is an overall shot of just the Baby Turtle Shell & Hat:
