If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you will undoubtedly know that I love knitted toys.
So when I came across this adorable little frog pattern, I knew what had to be done about it. I just couldn't resist this little frog's cute round tummy and happy little face. He needed to become part of my daughters knitted toy family.
And are we ever happy that he did!
Ribbit has been accompanying my daughter everywhere! He has been a playmate through the day and a friend to cuddle with at bedtime. She is thoroughly pleased.
But it wasn't only the cuteness that drew me to this pattern. I also think it is just soo clever that his tummy is stuffed with a tennis ball which makes him hop around like a real frog when he's tossed about. What a cute idea! Also he took only a tiny amount of yarn. I already had leftovers of Spud and Chloe Sweater yarn in the color Grass from my Chloe pattern. (yarn found here) So it worked out perfectly! Even after knitting up this little frog, I still have leftovers to make this cute little hat in the future!
I love it when I can use up scraps!
