I'm not understanding the step for the Belly #2 Work as for body to **. What do the **. mean? Help please.

Hi plp 1959--Thanks for your comment. This means you're going to work steps 1-5 of the body, up until the ** mark. So you'll repeat this: Using MC, make a yarn ring, work 8sc into the ring. Round 1: 1sc in each st to end of round. (8 sts) Round 2: 2sc into each st to end of round. (16 sts) Round 3: *2sc in next st, 1sc in foll 3 sts; rep from * three times more. (20 sts) Round 4: *2sc in next st, 1sc in foll 2 sts; rep from * five times more, 1sc into next 2sts (26 sts) Round 5: *2sc in next st, 1sc into foll 3 sts; rep from * four times more, 1sc into next st. (32 sts) and then continue on with round 6 in the belly section. Hope that helps!

Pattern seems to have been translated from French to UK English terms. In that case, 'dc' should be read as 'sc' by us Yanks.

Hi Suepowers7--great observation. Thank you so much for pointing this out! I'll go in and edit the pattern ASAP. --FaveCrafts Editor

Pattern cannot be correct! Says to dc and pic shows sc. Also belly of frog to be 5 more rows than top of body?? That makes no sense!!! You end up with a 6" long belly! Very disgusted with waste of my materials and time. if anyone reads this who can help me please respond!

I only wish that I would have read your comment prior to starting this. I hate to say that I also did the same thing and you mention exactly what happened to me as well. I believe that you can make this pattern using the sc as if you are making a circle, then change colors toward the middle when you start to notice that you have the same head as the picture. I dont see why you would need to make separate parts of the body when clearly this picture shows different. This pattern should be taken off the site.

bravo elles sont mignones est il possible d avoir les explications en franais je voudrais faire un cadeau a mon frere merci

Horrible explanation for the legs, absolutely makes no sense and no one posts on here a correction or suggestions. I went to the site of the original pattern and the legs is just as bad there. I had to pitch the whole ides, thanks for the waste of time!

Hate to say it but you are very right on this. I finished the frog and when I looked at the picture and the one I made, the head was smaller than the body which comes way out from the head and the legs also are not right either, I also wasted time on this. I really (unfortunately believe) that this was done by the author to make you want to buy her book for 19.99 so you can get the picture that supposely shows you how to put together this mess.

Bedankt voor het delen van dit leukepatroontje.. Ik zet een linkopmijn blog naar het patroontje (knutsel-mam.blogspot.com)

once you print patteren it comes out nice. you can understand better.

Read the other comments before you try to make this.....warning

so cute! can't wait to try making these cuties!

You might want to check out what was written related to this pattern before you waste your yarn.

These are very cute! An idea for lilly pad would be to find a plastic leaf that looks like a Lilly pad at a craft store to set them on.

Tried 3 times without success. Not enough directions, or directions not specific enough. Ch8 on lower body makes no sense. Couldn't figure out just where and how the legs were to be attached. Directions for the cluster toes, didn't make sence or turn out anything like the picture posted. Seems there needs to be more steps, or more clarity in this pattern. Perhaps a review and revision of this particular pattern should be completed. Will be waiting! cb

Hi again - don't know why that link doesn't work but have done a further search and found there is another website where you can find the pattern on the right hand side .... http://littlegreen.typepad.com/curiosity_cute/

These are very cute! I tried the link that didough so kindly put in for us but it didn't come up. Any suggestions?

I think the problem has arisen due to UK crochet terms being used i.e. UK Dc equates to US Sc ... This link to the website takes you to the pattern using US terminology http://littlegreen.typepad.com/romansock/files/toad.pdf

followed the directions to make these and they turned out like junk. maybe it is just me but I don't like them!

Made this using the dc that it called for, looks like an egg. Then I made it using sc and it turned out better, but I think I over stuffed it cause it still does not look like the ones in the picture. Guess I won't be doing this one again!!

Trying to make this pattern and I am having no luck at all. Could "scholma" let me know how to get the other pattern/ thanks

So frusterated with this pattern. I've tried it 5 times and it won't come out. After looking at the comments and closely at the picture I realized that the picture shows it in single crochet. Checking further I went to the creators blog and found the pattern with is written totally different and in single crochet. All I could get this pattern to do is make a 3" tube. The new pattern makes really cute frogs.

Sassier 299 MC is the Main Color of the project you are making and in this case of the Little Frogs and Toads it is: 10g Aran weight/worsted yarn in Green (MC) I hope this answers your question.

what is mc? I am new at this

I made this little frog and it came out quite cute. I did use fewer rows on the belly to made it shorter. I also added a fly button for some wimzy.I also used suger & spice yarn to make him smaller. To Sherry, I found a crocheted heart pattern and adjusted the bottom of the pattern to make it round. I would think that to get the "lacy" look you would just add more stitches to the pattern til you got the desired effect. thank you for this pattern. :)

this is a great picture of the frog but like someone earlier memtion the lily pad would be great,. love tyhis sight thank you

The frogs are really cute!! It would be nice to have a pattern for crocheted ruffled Lily pads. Sherry Buenrostro

Can anyone help with the toes? My toes are flat and the toes in the picture look like little balls which are cuter. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

To find out how to make the ring without using a foundation chain, do a search for "magic adjustable ring." It will show you a video on how to make the ring. I tried it and it is great. Yes, the pattern is written using UK notation. You can also do a search for UK to US crochet terms. Hope this helps to answer some of the questions. Linda

With the MC how many do you chain to make a ring, 2 or 3 or 5? Please let me know. It just says to make a yarn ring for the body!

Great Pattern - easy to follow and the frogs come out really nice! Thank-you

It looks like sc to me too! I bet pattern is written using UK terms which would mean dc for them is sc for US.

This does not look like double crochet to me.
