Frog in a Pond

Hey,

Here is a patteren I would love to try, just to do in my spare time.

 

It is a crochet frog and I got this pattern fully from http://sue-mindnsoul.blogspot.com.au/. Visit her blog to find so many realistic, cute and fun amigurumi patterns.
She posts awesome patterns that are so fun http://sue-mindnsoul.blogspot.com.au/

Materials

-Yarn – use a yarn and hook to make a solid fabric so you can’t see the stuffing so any favourite yarn will do ; worsted weight, DK, or even if you want to make a furry frog.. not a problem.. but I use 4 ply acrylic.
– Hook – any suitable hook – I used 4/0 (2.3mm) hook
-Stuffing
– Google eyes or patch of felt – anything
-Tapestry needle
