My little friend Liam is coming to town and he loves frogs! So, as a special surprise, I made these brothers from another mother:
First up, “Frog” from Crocheted Wild Animals by Vanessa Mooncie:
I decided to deviate from the pattern by mixing two different shades of green yarn. And instead of making each toe and finger separately, I crocheted them continuously onto the foot itself (less sewing that way!). I also used a safety eye instead of crocheting an eye from yarn, as well as making an eyeball instead of half an eye and attaching it to the lid:
Second, “Kirk the Frog” by Lisa Jestes Designs in Zoomigurumi 4:
Cute – he kinda looks like Kermit but he’s called “Kirk”!
Can’t wait to see Liam’s face when I give them to him!
