Step 1: Knit Frog’s Back Body
First, we’ll knit the back body of the frog, working from the bottom up. Follow the detailed instructions for each row, incorporating techniques like knit, purl, and special stitches like the puff stitch. This section forms the foundation of your frog’s body, including its distinctive eyes created with puff stitches.
Step 2: Knit Frog’s Belly
Moving on to the frog’s belly, switch to white worsted weight yarn and follow the provided instructions to create the contrasting section. The belly complements the back body, adding character and detail to your knitted frog.
Step 3: Knit Frog’s Back Legs
Create the hind legs of your frog by following the instructions for two back legs. The shaping and assembly details ensure a realistic and adorable look. Weave in ends, shape the toes, and sew the seams to complete each leg.
Step 4: Knit Frog’s Front Legs
Finish off your frog by knitting two front legs using a similar approach as the back legs. Pay attention to the toe shaping and webbed feet, and then assemble the legs by sewing the seams and leaving webbing for the toes.
- Weave in long ends to shape toes and make them inconspicuous.
- Sew the seams, leaving webbing for toes.
- Flatten the feet to create webbed toes.
- Stuff the top half of the frog’s body with wool or fiberfill.
- Sew closed, ensuring a snug and adorable finish.
With these steps completed, you’ll have a charming knitted frog ready to hop into your collection.
