ETA --- Here's a list of some... they are all about 6" around, but it seems to me that they could be adapted to be bigger....
Sheldon Turtle - An adorable turtle that is 6 by 9 inches with great style, available at http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTsheldon.htm
Those are all so cute I think I would have to make each of them.
Tuck The Turtle - A pleasant little turtle that's easy and cute, found at http://www.spudandchloe.com/blog/2010/03/tuck-free-pattern/
Sock Turtle - An easy pattern that is very light and happy, found at http://mybooteeknits.blogspot.com/2008/05/introducing-newest-member-of-mybootee.html
Dylan's Turtle - A simple design that ends in a wonderful turtle creation, found at http://knittybutton.com/2010/04/11/a-turtle/
Ahh... I'll keep looking.... may be time for a pattern to be designed... starting with an oval and then adding the head, legs and tail.kimm2boys said:knit4es the turtle cushions were probably large enough for a small child to sit on. the shell was probably 19" across.
