Jump like a green frog

Picture 2775

One of the songs we sing at Music is “Jump like a green frog” and it was sung and danced to enthusiastically many times today as I knitted up this cute wee frog.  I was enchanted when I saw the one here on a blog that I read. I knew I had the perfect frog coloured yarn in my stash and thought that he might go down well with the girls. I was right! This super cute wee frog is getting lots of love.

So, what’s so special about this frog?

Well, not only is it a super quick knit, and pretty economical on the yarn, it also has cute wee details. I love the i-cord arms and legs, and the cute round belly? It’s got a tennis ball inside. Yep, this frog actually *does* jump like  a green frog.

The pattern is a free pattern too, you can find it here.

So, if you feel like  a quick, cute project, this one might be for you.

    Great job! He’s adorable. I have seen this pattern and was wanting to make it for my wee ones. Now I really want to try it.

    I almost made this instead of the puppy. I thought better of it since I thought the tennis ball might encourage house-wrecking episodes (grin). Yours looks just like the pattern!

    Super cute!! I know some other wee children who would agree, and what a clever idea having tennis ball tummy!
