The daughter of a friend of mine adores Kikker (=frog in Dutch, that's his name!), the loveable character designed by the late Max Velthuijs. So, for her second birthday I tried to crochet one. She was not impressed -how to impress a child nowadays eh!- but I secretly was. With myself.
The original Kikker looks like this: http://www.theagenda.nl/theagenda/library/show_image.php?ID=55846Isn't he cute!
Then I found the free pattern for this frog , and altered it slightly to make it look more like Kikker. And here he is.
I like the sort of squinting smile that he has. And the swimming trunks are what made the whole character adorable in the first place!
