I found the pattern for these cute little turtles here:

But I wasn’t quite happy with the size of the feet and head, and I wanted the tail to be longer for when I attached a split ring; so I changed the pattern as follows (changes are in italics

Round 6: Work in BLO for whole round: Sc in next 2 st, (*tail: ss in next st, ch 10, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and in next 9, ss back into original st), sc in next 2 st, 4 dc pop in next st, sc in next 3 st, 4 dc pop in next st, sc in next 2 st, [head: 4 dc in each of next 2 st, take hook out leaving loop, put hook through 1st dc & pull loop through], sc in next 2 st, 4 dc pop in next st, sc in next 3 st, 4 dc pop in next st.

I have made 4 of these little guys so far, and the one below makes 5! After a bit of trial and error, he is finally how I want him. What do you think?
