I’m watching knitting podcasts and whipping up a few of these cute frogs. (Homespun House is on in the background, and I have to cover my ipad cover w/a catalog because Chanel kept coming over and kneading it!). My college craft club is going to have a little mini-boutique for spring with proceeds going to one of our charity projects, so we are making spring related items to sell.
These frogs are very fast to make. The basic pattern is from Lion Brand, but I changed a a little of it. I used thinner yarn so used an F size (versus an H) hook. The eyes are simply 18 stitch circles that I stitch flat onto the body, and then I usually either glue on black felt eye or googly eyes. The green yarn is some kind of mystery stuff that was donated the club years ago, and the white yarn for the eyes was also donate. We usually make a few small amiguruimi items like this and sell them for just $3. They are fast, and because we get yarn donations (lots of acrylic of course), they don’t cost us anything but time to make. In fact, this guy is even stuff with scrap yarn!
It has been a nice, lazy Sunday!
