I finally finished this baby blanket yesterday! 

Let me know if you use the froggie pattern and have problems with it, or is hard to understand.  I've never written patterns before.
----------------------------------
To make the Frog:
With Green work Rows 1-4 as charted from the Monkey Pattern.

Row 5: ch 1, 2sc in each of first 2sc, 1 sc in each of next 13sc, 2 sc in each of next 3 sc, 1 sc in each of next 12 sc, 2sc in last sc, sl st.

Row 6: ch 1, 2sc in next each of next 2 sc, sk 1, 7dc shell, sk 2, sl st in next 5 sc, sk 2, 7dc shell, sk 1, sc in remaining stitches around. Sl st in 1st sc.  Fasten off.

I'll post a picture that shows the eyes upclose so you can see how I sewed those.
---------------------------------

I made it using Caron Simply Soft in White, Lemonade and Limelight.  Sage was used for the dark parts of the eyes and the mouth.
