*Changing the size of the yarn and hook will increase or decrease the overall size of the tortoise. Make it your own!*
*If interested in making this MUCH larger, then simply multiply each step by the amount larger you want. Ex: If you would like your tortoise 3 times larger than this pattern makes, then multiply the amount of stitches at the end of each round or row by 3! Think of the possibilities!!*
