frog pattern


Hi my friends.
Thanks for all your sweet comments on my last post :)
So many of you asked for the froggy pattern - so here it comes. :)
I used alpacca wool "mirasol" from Du Store Alpakka for my green frog, and just some baby-wool for the pink frog.
So without forther ado:

Amigurumi Crochet FROG
BODY
start off with ch 2.
Rnd 1: Work 6 sc in first ch; place a marker to indicate beg of rnd; move marker up as each rnd is
completed.
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around - 12 sc.
Rnd 3: *2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc; rep from * around - 18 sc.
Rnd 4: *2 sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc; rep from * around - 24 sc.
Rnd 5: *2 sc in next sc, sc in next 3 sc; rep from * around - 30 sc.
Rnd 6: *2 sc in next sc, sc in next 4 sc; rep from * around - 36 sc.
Rnd 7: *2 sc in next sc, sc in next 5 sc; rep from * around - 42 sc.
Rnds 8-17: Sc in each sc around.
Rnd 18: *Sc2tog, sc in next 5 sc; rep from * around - 36 sc.
Rnd 19: *Sc2tog, sc in next 4 sc; rep from * around - 30 sc.
Rnd 20: *Sc2tog, sc in next 3 sc; rep from * around - 24 sc.
Rnd 21: *Sc2tog, sc in next 2 sc; rep from * around - 18 sc.
Rnd 22: *Sc2tog, sc in next sc; rep from * around - 12 sc. Stuff piece.
Rnd 23: (Sc2tog) around - 6 sc.
Fasten off, leaving a long tail. Weave tail through last rnd and gather tightly. Knot to secure.
EYES (make 2)
With white, ch 2.
Rnd 1: Work 6 sc in first ch; place a marker to indicate beg of rnd; move marker up as each rnd is
completed.
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around - 12 sc.
Rnds 3 and 4: Sc in each sc around.
Fasten off.
FINISHING
Arms and Legs
Join yarn to Body with sl st and ch 10.
Work (sl st, ch 5, sl st, ch 3, sl st) in 4th ch from hook.
Fasten off.
With black yarn embroider a French knot on each Eye. With red yarn embroider a straight stitch smile. Sew
Eyes to Body. Weave in ends.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
sc2tog (sc decrease) Insert hook into st and draw up a loop. Insert hook into next st and
draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook.

NOTES:
Work in continuous rnds; do not join or turn unless otherwise instructed.
You can make the frog any size you like, just stop increasing, or increase more rounds to make your frog the size you like.

*edited*
for my norwegian friends:
Jeg har desverre ikke mulighet til å oversette hele oppskriften, men denne bør være veldig enkel ;)
hele frosken er heklet med fastmasker.
ch = kjedemasker
sc = maske
rnd = runde
2 sc in next sc = hekle 2 masker i neste maske (legg ut 1)
sc2tog= ta sammen to masker.
:)
VOILA!

have a great week!

Så tøffe disse var!!! Er glad i alt som har med håndarbeid og papir å gjøre, så jeg er stor fan av det du lager og viser oss på bloggen din! Jeg har veldig lyst til å prøve disse! Men... er ikke så god på engelske mønstre kan du si... Håper jeg ikke er alt for frekk hvis jeg spør om det er mulig å oversette den? Tusen millioner takk for all inspirasjon :) Vennlig hilsen meg

A friend of mine mentioned 2012 last night to me and it's the first I heard about it so I jumped on here out of curiosity. I think it's kind of sick and sounds like a bunch of skeptical jargon.
I choose to live every day like it is the last because let's be real, WHO THE HELL KNOWS what is going to happen or when it's your time to go on. The past is history, the future is a mystery and now is a gift, thats why it's called the present. It's not healthy to sit around and trip out about when you will die. Stop wasting your time you have now.
