In this amigurumi crochet pattern we'll be crocheting a tiny Giant Tortoise! There are many subspecies of giant tortoises found on different islands in the Galápagos, and they can live in the wild for over 100 years! With this crochet pattern, you can create your own cute tiny version of these amazing endangered giants that can actually tuck into its shell like a real tortoise!
