Assembly of Ribbit

Sew pupils to eyes.  Insert eyes into eyes sockets making sure to position the pupils as desired and sew tightly.  Attach constructed eyes to main body across rounds 3, 4 & 5 (counting from top).  Attach feet to bottom of main body following the arc of row 4 (counting from bottom).

 

Smile

Using a surface crochet method create a deep smile starting and returning to row 8 (counting from top). I found it much easier to add the smile before stuffing the body of the frog.  It is much less fiddly and none of the stuffing pulls through with the stitches either.

 

Let your imagination run wild.  I have added eyelashes to my pink Ribbit (‘cause she’s a girly girl) and googly or crossed eyes would look fun too.  I’d love to see what you do with these fun little frogs so please share your photos with me.   If you have any questions, comments or problems with this pattern please contact me and I will get back to you.

 

Have fun, Vivienne xox
