Just put these up on my blog. It's funny how often people want to make an animal for their friends who have favorites, and all the patterns out there look cartoony and weird. What's wrong with realistic crochet? Anyway I designed these for glccafar for our mobile swap, and they're being mailed out on a mobile as soon as I get their wings on. Frogs have wings, right?

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

Oh, I'm sorry, the tutorial is on my blog. Hang on.
These are frogs I designed for a mobile swap on Craftster.org. They are supposed to look realistic. As you can see, I made several different body sizes and feet. The pattern for every kind should be here. The wings are from the pig pattern. Hope ya'll enjoy them! The waterlily behind them is the Waterlily Filet Centerpiece in the flowers section of crochetpatterncentr al.com.
You will need:
D hook
Green worsted weight yarn
Stuffing
Beads for eyes (although I haven't put them on yet.)

Frog body, worked in the round:
Ch2, 4 sc in 2nd ch from hook.
Ch1, 2 sc in each sc.
Ch1, *1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc*.
For the small frog, stop here for a minute while I give directions for the big frog.
Big frog: add another row of *1 sc in each of next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc*.

Okay. Now for both frogs, continue on in even sc for 4 rows for the small frog, 6 for the big one.
Now fold him in half. Do one decrease at each edge, on every round, otherwise working in even sc, until the hle is small enough to stuff him-do that, and then continue until the hole is shut.

Legs:

For the small frog:
Ch4, sl st in 3rd ch from hok. Ch 3, sl st in same st. Ch 3, sl st in same st. Ch 1, sc in sl st.  *Ch1, turn, sc in sc* 4x. End off.

Big frog:
Ch 5, sl st in 4 chs. * Ch 4, sl st in 3 chs* 2 x. Sl st. in beginning ch. Ch 2, hdc in sl st.  ch 1, turn, sc in hdc, *ch 1, turn, sc in sc* 5x. Ch 3, 6 dc in sc. End off.

Sitting back feet for big frog:
Ch 5, sl st in 4 chs. *ch 4, sl st in 3 chs* 2x. Sl st in beginning ch. Ch 2, 4 hdc in sl st. End off.

I'm a bit confused with the small frog leg pattern... do I make 2 or 4 legs?
Otherwise, this is fantastically easy to understand, and it only took me about 15 minutes for the big guy!  Thanks again!

Oooooh...any chance of a pattern/tutorial for the water lily?  I'm sure if I played around a bit I could figure it out, but I'd much rather do it right!  My best friend is buddhist, and since it looks like a lotus, I know she'd love it!

I didn't design the lily, it's from a free pattern on this page:

www.crochetpatternc entral.com/directory/flowers.php

It's a pdf file called Waterlily Filet Centerpiece and Doily, near the bottom of the page.

Isn't it beautiful? I was thinking of making curtain tiebacks with it.

Ok, at the risk of sounding really stupid, I dont get the 'fold in half' part. Maybe if I am actually holding the work in my hands I will? Help?

Okay, I think by "fold in half" I basically meant just flatten your piece so it's a half-circle.

SO CUTE!

What other winged creatures do you do?  And I LOVE that they are more realistic, wings or no wings.

Fantastic job!
