I'm stuck on the body back... it says:
Row 24: For back flap opening, ch 1, sc in next sc, sc in each ch
across Row 1 of flap, sc in last sc on Row 21.

Row 25: Ch 1, sc in each sc across, turn.

Row 26: Rep row 13: 16. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Ok, so in row 24, I'm joining just the ends of the flap I made to the back? Then single crocheting along the flap, not the last row I did on the back? Then on row 25 it says to sc in each sc across, the sc's I did (if I was supposed to) on the flap when I attached it to the back or sc across the body? and row 26 says to repeat row 13 which was a part of "9-18" and that threw me cuz I expected it to say repeat row 9. I did what I think is right (joined the flap to the back in just the ends, sc'ed across the body for 2 rows and fastened off... is this right? help!!:blush

Hi, I am so sorry about the confusion on this frog. On Row 24, sc in first stitch of back, now sc across only the flap, sc in last sc on back. This leaves an opeing for putting things inside. On Row 25, sc in each sc across. Row 26, Sc first 2 sc together, sc in each sc across, sc last 2 sc together: 16.

I hope this helps!

Hi guys! I have been lurking, but not posting. I just made this frog again for the first time in about 3 years! I remembered how cute he really is! I did notice a boo-boo. when attaching the flap, you work 1 sc in the first sc of row 23, then work only in the chs across the flap and then the last sc at the end of Row 23, not 21.

On mine, I added buttonholes on row 3 of the flap and then sewed on buttons. However, if making this for a small child, use velcro or just leave the flap free. I also added a handle at the top of mine. I joined in the 4th sc at top, ch 16, counted over 11 more sc and joined ther. I then worked in sl st across the ch 16, joined in same sc as beg joining. I am so sorry i can't share a picture! he really is worth the time he takes.

okay, I see that it's been 4 years since this was originally posted and no pictures yet! I couldn't sleep last night, so decided to make one up!

On the hands/feet/toes, instead of doing them after the arms/legs and having to attach them, I just added one more ch and worked the 5 sc there and then did the toes and continued on with the 3 dc in each ch back to the body.

For the strap, when I got to the top, I crocheted across the top, then at the *corner* I chained 110, joined with a sl st to the other corner, then worked sl st all the way back the 110 ch and continued joining the front and back to the end.

the flap: on row 4 I dec the first two together, sc in the next 2, ch 5, sk 2, sc in the next 6, ch 5, sk 2, sc in next 2 and dec last 2 together. Finished off.

Buttons: I covered two buttons in the same yarn so they aren't as noticeable on the back side.

This little critter is so darn cute! I know I'm going to have to make him for each of my 3 granddaughters! He was fun to do!

I was debating on making the flap/back side the front and making the buttons the eyes...which might work, but then I realized they'd be a little lower than the eyes should be.

That's awesome, very cute, and thank you for adding your suggestions to the pattern. I hope to make one soon.
