Baby Frog Free Crochet Pattern

Updated: Oct 19, 2019



When frogs are this cute it's not hard to believe they could turn into princes, right?


I crocheted this little guy as part of my latest Amigurumi collection that features 5 little animals! They are approximately 5" tall and can work perfectly as attachments for a super sweet nursery mobile!


You can already find the patterns for crocheting the Panda and the Elephant listed in my Etsy and Ravelry pages!



I'll be listing the patterns for the Squirrel and the Tiger in the next few weeks...for now I'd like to share the crochet instruction for the BABY FROG with you all!
