Meet Felix

Green crochet frog

Felix is a crochet frog. A friend of ours had a baby and this is the gift I made for their little boy. I found the pattern on Ravelry and couldn’t resist his big eyes and beaming smile! What a charmer.

I made a couple of small changes to the pattern: crocheted the top of the arms in blue to make sleeves and I added some edging to the sleeves and the bottom of the jumper. For the edging I picked up stitches and repeated: sl st, ch3, sk1.

To make him feel a bit more cuddly, I shortened the arms and legs.

I love the oversized eyes, they look so cheerful!

And this is us trying to photograph my handiwork. I had trouble propping him up so I asked Scott if I could borrow him. He’s use to my strange requests but I think dangling a frog from a piece of thread might be the oddest yet. We had a few laughs because Felix is top heavy, so trying to keep him upright was like watching a drunk frog stumble around!

Things with faces are hard to give away but hopefully Felix will be a good companion to his new owner.

  1. He is cute! And thank you for sharing the last picture and the story behind! It made me laugh and think of my picture-taking-adventures 🙂

    • I think the adventure behind the picture taking is sometimes as good as the end product 🙂

    • Definitely! You can never have too many knitted things, especially if they are homemade!

  2. Oh I love him! I am expecting a baby girl at the end of September and I am OBSESSED with frogs for her. 🙂 This little guy is adorable!!
