Pattern Description:

The Frogs are part of my Shelf Sitters Collection.

The Shelf Sitters never stay in one place for long here though. My kids are just too fascinated by them and love to play with them. :)

Easy and fast to crochet, and a real eye-catcher on every shelf. The perfect present, birthday gift or just for fun. :)

With this pattern you can crochet several Frogs. Depending on where you position the eyes on the body, a new Frog comes to life.

Optional: The eyes keep their mobility after sewing them on!
