The Frog

This is a custom made crochet frog which I created for a friend at Christmas. The plain green is lovely Australian Merino 4 ply wool from Spotlight and the multicoloured yarn is synthetic. The  crochet brown hat is a suitable coarse wool. The Frog kept trying to be an owl as I made it and then disaster struck when I had it all put together and one of the eyes came adrift as I was crocheting around the tops to f the eyes. I wasn't impressed and had to be very strong and pushy to get that eye back in place. The new owner is thrilled to bits because he wanted a nice frog but not too cute. The front is actually a pouch so you could hide secrets in there!
