Valentine’s day is around the corner, and I need a prince.
Why not crochet a toad for a prince then ?
I ran into that pretty frog pattern, initially made as a princess frog, but I’ve decided to knit mine as a prince 🙂
I had several unused skeins of cotton in a box, and that was perfect for this project.
It’s quite easy at first to crochet legs
and then, that’s when your toad/frog starts to take shape, and look a bit silly in pieces 🙂
For the crown, I improvised a little one, crocheting this way :
a chain of 8 stitches, joined together, then double crochet each stitch of the first row…
and then, double crochet the first stich, make 4 chain stich, and then double crochet in the next stitch.
Assembling pieces together was easier than I thought 🙂
with a crown please, that’s a prince I need, not a simpe toad 😉
Since I havn’t read the pattern before starting my project, I didn’t acknowledge that I needed a pipe cleaner to put inside the legs.
So I decided to sew mines in a way that they looked bent.
Adding a little heart was the extra piece to make it look better together
Now let’s kiss that toad and see what happen !
