Well, finally I'm going to post the pattern for the cute froggy I made up. It was inspired by this pattern.

There is also a book coming out I am eager to give a try with the great name Making Felted Friends .
Froggy is very quick and took about 1 hour including writing out the directions!


worsted weight wool (I used some leftover wool I space dyed, in daffodil)

gauge - doesn't much matter, I used size 8 needles

Start at the foot and worked up

CO 7 sts. Knit 8 rows.

Row 9: (K1 K2tog) two times, K1

Row 10: K

Row 11: K2tog, K1, K2tog

Row 12-29 (or until you like the leg length): Knit 3 st I cord.

Row 30: K front and back, Knit 2 (4 sts)

Cut yarn and put on holder.

Make a second leg the same, only do not cut the yarn.

Row 31: after increasing for the 2nd leg, CO 8, K the 4 sts of the 1st leg, CO 8. Join in the round (I had 8 sts on 3 needles)

Row 32-40: K

Row 41: (K10, K2tog) two times.

Row 42: K

Row 43: (K9, K2tog) two times

Row 44: K

Row 45: (K8, K2tog) two times

Row 46: K

Row 47: (K7, K2tog) two times

Row 48: K

Row 49: (K7, Kf&b) two times

Row 50-51: K 2

Row 52: (K8, Kf&b) two times

Row 53-55: K

I stuffed at this point with scrap yarn.

Row 54: (K2, K2tog) around

Row 55: K2tog around. Secure.


CO 5 sts. K 4 rows

Row 5: K2tog, K, K2tog

Row 6: K

Row 7-12- 3st Icord. Cast off.

Sew just below neck.

Eyes: I crocheted 10 single crochet into a circle and pulled tight. I sewed these on and then added a knot for the pupil (I was out of black yarn, hence the blue eyed frog).

Felting: I hand felted him since he is small. Then sit him on the counter to dry.
