What Goes Around-Comes Around-So Make it Beautiful

My mom has been wanting a real border collie, so for Solstice I gave her the next best thing: A black & white crocheted frog! ;-)



I followed for the most part a pattern from a McCall's Christmas Knit & Crochet magazine from 1979/1980.



Of course I had to knit him a ribbed (ribbit!) scarf!

He is the first "toy" I ever crocheted and it was a lot of fun  (and super fast & easy!); therefore, I think he now needs a girlfriend...

I want to make this froggy too. I love how yours turned out. What was the name/date of the magazine? I'm going to try to track it down.

Thanks.

Your frogs got a lot of character!  Cheesy  Is the scarf to keep him warm, while he herds sheep on the Scottish Moor?  Wink

PlumCrafty- Thanks Katie! LOVE the poster you sent Mom!

NikkiDear- It's the McCall's Christmas Knit & Crochet Vol.2 magazine from 1980. I bought it on eBay. Here's a photo:


Infinite Annie - That's exactly the reason why I made him a scarf! Of course, he has a piggy he has to watch out for too...and that Ms. Piggy thinks she's a Babe. Wink
