Bigger Frog

Bigger Frog

Frog measures about 9 ½ inches tall!


Supplies needed:
G Hook
Small amounts of WW yarn
Stitch marker or safety pin
Buttons for eyes (optional)

Terms used
Sc = single crochet
Sc-dec = single crochet decrease over 2 stitches
Ch = chain
FO = Finish off, or Fasten off

Please note!!!

The frog is done in a continous spiral.(unless other wise noted) I would suggest using a stitch marker or a safety pin to mark your place
Another tip: when you start the body, you will be working from the bottom up. If after a few rounds, there is holes in the bottom, you can use the beginning tail to sew them shut a bit



One of the easiest things to do, pin before sewing. I make up the entire head, and eyes first. Using sewing straight pins (or longer needles) pin the eyes onto the head. Make sure you like where they are first before sewing. Play around with the placement to see what you like. Do this will all your work. It will make a huge difference!

Sew arms onto troll

Hair
You will need many pieces of yarn, cut into 5 inch pieces or so. Each piece of yarn will act as 2 strands of hair.
Insert hook into troll head at hair line. Use round 3 of troll head where you crocheted in BLO as a guide. I attached a strand of hair in the usused loop around his head, and filled in the middle. Grab middle of yarn strand with hook and pull through stitch, ( Like you would latch hook!) making a small loop. Pull both free ends of yarn strand through loop, pulling tight to secure hair.
You will continue to do this around the head.
Trim hair even in back, or as desired.
To give him a wavy look, (as pictured) I untwisted each strand of hair, and separated it. Tedious, but looks neat.
Another option, comb hair for a frizzy look.
Enjoy!

Smaller frog

Small Frog

Frog measures about 7 inches tall!

Supplies needed
:
G Hook
Small amounts of WW yarn
Stitch marker or safety pin
Buttons for eyes (optional)

Terms used
Sc = single crochet
Sc-dec = single crochet decrease over 2 stitches
Ch = chain
FO = Finish off, or Fasten off


Please note!!!
The frog is done in a continous spiral.(unless other wise noted) I would suggest using a stitch marker or a safety pin to mark your place
Another tip: when you start the body, you will be working from the bottom up. If after a few rounds, there is holes in the bottom, you can use the beginning tail to sew them shut a bit.
I get asked, why doesn’t my “ --------------” (fill in the blank) look like yours??
One of the easiest things to do, pin before sewing. I make up the entire head, and eyes first. Using sewing straight pins (or longer needles) pin the eyes onto the head. Make sure you like where they are first before sewing. Play around with the placement to see what you like. Do this will all your work. It will make a huge difference!
