Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Short Rows, KFB, I-Cord, I-Cord edge finish, Kitchener Stitch

Pattern Description:

The ear flaps are double thickness to create Pudgy frog thighs that will keep ears extra warm. Or, Leave them open like pockets for teen snowboarders to put theire headphones in place. The extendable tongue tucks in the mouth out of the way, or make it extra long for young ones to tie a pacifier to it.

Don't worry about the difficulty level, I've included instructions and web links to video tutorials if you need visual help.

The yarn is inexpensive, easy to substitute and available at most craft stores. So you can make plenty as gifts that everyone will ROFL for.
ROFL (Roll On the Floor Laughing) is my mission in knitting.
