These little guys live in the rain forests of North Queensland, only coming down out of the trees to breed. They are nocturnal, so rarely seen. They have cousins in the forests of South America. As our rain forests diminish, so has the population of these little frogs. In life they are about 6.5cm and their distinctive eyes vary in colour from bright red to orange. The skin is a bright green with a yellow under belly. It is thought that the eyes are a deterrent to predators. As if a frog can be pretty these ones certainly have an interesting appearance.
Pattern includes instructions for making the Red Eyed Frog as a motif in thread or yarn, and then how to make a square for projects, afghans and rugs. I have also provided a second edge option so you can match other squares in my rugalugs series. Also includes a bonus sheet for making a frog hat. You can alternate your colours and I had a lot of fun experimenting!
The pattern will come to you as a pdf file in both Australian /British and American terminology. If there is any thing you dont understand, just email me. Because I email you the file there are no shipping costs and I aim to deliver within 24 - 48 hours of payment.
Size may vary depending on your yarn and tension. The square shown is done in 8ply, worsted weight, double knit yarn and a 4mm hook and measures 15cm/6inches. This pattern has lots of uses only limited by your imagination.
