Too cute!  If you are willing to share your pattern, I'd give it a go.  Who couldn't use more prosperity?  Grin

Wow he's small! Very cute too  Smiley I don't think he needs a mouth at all, it kinda looks like he already has one though with the way the stitches lay.  I would like the pattern for Pedro too, me needy the more cashola asap!!

Pedro, the crocheted Prosperity Frog
Need: size E hook
   Green worst weight yarn
   Small amount of fiberfil or other stuffing material
   Thread to match yarn, and a needle
   Small amount of white felt
   2 green cats eye beads
   A small coin charm and gold seed beads
   A penny
   Optional: Pinch each of frankincense, clove, cinnamon bark, bay leaf, orange peel
   Small lodestone, small aventurine

Body (make 2)
Chain 4
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from the hook, and in next 2 ch, chain 1, turn
Row 2: 2sc in first sc, sc in next sc, 2sc in last sc. Chain 1, turn
Row 3: sc across, chain 1, turn
Row 4: decrease over the next two sc, sc in next sc, decrease over last two sc, chain 1, turn
Row 5: sc across, chain 1, turn
Row 6: 2sc in first sc, sc in next sc, 2sc in last sc, chain 1, turn
Row 7-9: sc across, chain 1, turn (at the end of row 9, do not chain 1 and turn, simply finish off

Using thread and needle, sew the two pieces together leaving the bottom open. Once you sew around the head, i suggest stuffing it before you continue down the other side.  When finished sewing together, stuff the body with the rest of the fiberfil, herbs, stones and place the penny on the bottom, then sew the bottom up.

For the legs, attach yarn at the bottom of the frog, chain 6, finish off, leaving a tail of about 3. Add a cats eye bead to the tail, knot the yarn twice below the bead, trim the extra yarn off to your liking. I cut it about half an inch from the bead, then frayed the ends.

For the arms, attach the yarn one row below the neck, chain 3, finish off, then weave in the end going back up the chain and into the body.

Attach either felt eye shapes, or googly eyes if you have them. I haven't unpacked my stash yet so i just used a small piece of felt to cut out eye shapes.

For the necklace, i simply strung gold beads, attached the coin, and secured it at the back of the neck.

You can really decorate it however you wish, and if you feel other items are more geared towards prosperity than i listed, feel free to add those to your frog as well.

This is my first pattern i've actually had to write for someone else to understand, so if there are any problems with it, please let me know.
