3 EYES FROG {free pattern}

«3 eyes frog» is a character of the author and illustrator of children’s books Olga de Dios.

If you do not know her, I encourage you to visit her website http://olgadedios.es where you can find her beautiful and funny books.

In the author’s own words: My work focuses on the transmission of values of solidarity and the dissemination of some issues on which I believe we should generate more references for childhood.

The sexual affective diversity and other diversities, the gender equality and the acceptance of identities different from the normative ones, the respect to the environment, the promotion of a responsible consumption, the transmission of free culture are some of the issues that concern me and which I work on.

MATERIALS:

●100% cotton yarn, pistachio green, dark green, mustard, off-white, red, black and pink.

● Crochet according to the thickness of the yarn used. In this pattern I used a crochet 4mm crochet body and 2.5mm for eye circles.

● Black safety eyes (I used some 8 mm, if you do embroidery you do not need this!)

● Toy stuffing

● Yarn needle

●Scissors, sewing pins and stitch markers (if you do not have a thread, a hairpin, a safety pin, etc.).

ABBREVIATIONS:

● Mr – Magic ring.

● Sc – Single crochet.

● Ch – Chain

● St / sts – Stitch / stitches

● Sl st – Slip stich

● Inc – Single crochet increase (2sc in one st)

● Inv dec – Invisible single crochet decrease (sc 2 together, front loops only)

● Rnd – Round

● Pop corn stich – PC

● [nº] – The number inside the brackets are the total stitches of the round. Ex: [12], in total, at the end of the round, there must be 12 stitches.

● (…) xN: Repeat the instructions between the parentheses N times. Ex .: (1sc, 1inv st) x6, means that we should weave 1sc, 1inv dec 6 times.

We start!

Rnd 6: When we finish the 3rd eye we join with a 2nd eye with a sl st, we make 6sc (mark the first st with the marker, that will be our start of rounds). We join with the 1st eye with a sl st, and we continue crocheting all around 30sc [In total we would have to have 36 sts at the end of the round].

-If we are going to use safety eyes we have to put them now. We put the eye in the middle of the white circle and then place it in each eye bulge centered between rounds 4 and 5.

Rnd 13: (5sc, 1inc) x6 [42]

At the end of the round, continue crocheting sc until you reach the side of the frog (so the changes back will be less noticeable to be camouflaged under the arm). The first stitch we make in dark green yarn will be marked as our new start of rounds.

ASSEMBLY:

1- Sew the fingers to the hands. Place them centered just above the first round (between rounds 1 and 2), fasten with pins and sew.

2- Sew the foots to the legs. Center the base of the legs on the foots between rounds 7 and 10, fasten with pins and sew.

3- Sew the arms. Place the arm on the side between rounds 14 and 15 (with the fingers on top) fasten and sew. (Repeat the same operation on the other side with the second arm).

4- Sew the legs. Place the leg to one side, in line with the arm, between rounds 23 and 24 and sew (repeat the operation with the second leg).

5- Face: Sew the eyes to the face if we already have them with safety eyes.

*If we are going to make the eyes embroidered, we embroider them with black thread giving 3 stitches around the first round of the white circle. Then we place them, hold them and sew them to the face.

6- We embroider with white thread the 2 holes of the nose, with red a smile, with pink some cheeks.

Congratulations! You already have it!
