Bella’s Sheldon

Sheldon is a simple, fun pattern that is available free online. I knit this one up for Bella’s Christmas present.

Sheldon’s ‘shell’ is removable which makes a fun possibility of making different shells for different occasions.¬† It was a quick knit and is on my ‘do-again’ list as Colby (4) is enthralled with Bella’s Sheldon and has been requesting an orange one for his birthday.

Bella’s Sheldon was knit on size 3 and 4 needles with Cascade 220 Superwash for the body and Cascade 220 Superwash Paint for the shell.

Bella (and Colby) love him.

You can find more ideas and free patterns in the knitting archives.

    Sheldon is darling — just like the Littles! I have seen Sheldon and all his accoutrements, but there are few things more inspiring to knit, than to see a babe of extreme cuteness chewing on the knitted object! :) It looks fantastic!

    Aww, lovely little turtle. Of course, Bella’s lovely as well. ;) If I can get past the beginning stages of knitting, I’ll try and make one of these. Right now I’m all fingers and thumbs.

    Awe, so cute! I just took up knitting a couple of months ago, when I realized I was going to have hours of sitting around waiting for my OB (who is almost always an hour late). Maybe I’ll make a little Sheldon for this baby?

    I love this! I am teaching myself to knit. I can only do scarfs but I will have to attempt this some day!
