Assuming you would like a blog post on how to knit a frog:
“Frogs are not only fun to look at but they’re fun to knit too! These amphibians have been popular subjects of knitting patterns for years and there are many different ways that you can approach knitting one. In this blog post we’ll show you how to knit a frog step-by-step so that you can make your own cute and cuddly frog friend.
First you’ll need to gather your materials. For this project you’ll need a pair of size 8 US knitting needles a skein of green worsted weight yarn a tapestry needle and a stitch marker. If you’re using a different yarn weight or needle size you may need to adjust your tension and needle size accordingly.
Next you’ll need to cast on 24 stitches onto one of your needles. You can use any type of cast on that you’re comfortable with but we recommend using a long-tail cast on for this project. Once you’ve cast on your stitches place your stitch marker onto the needle to keep track of your work.
Now you’ll begin knitting in the round. You’ll knit all 24 stitches until your work measures approximately 1 inch from the cast on edge.
Next you’ll begin decreases to shape the frog’s head. To do this you’ll knit two stitches together (k2tog) six times for a total of 12 stitches remaining. Then you’ll knit one stitch place your stitch marker and knit two stitches together six more times. You should now have six stitches remaining on your needle.
Next you’ll knit three rows even. Then you’ll begin decreases to shape the frog’s body. To do this you’ll k2tog three times for a total of three stitches remaining.
Now you’ll stuff your frog with polyester fiberfill. Once your frog is stuffed to your liking you’ll k2tog twice more for a total of one stitch remaining. Cut your yarn leaving a long tail and thread it onto your tapestry needle. Draw the yarn through the remaining stitch and pull tight to close up the hole.
To finish you’ll need to sew on the frog’s legs. Cut two lengths of yarn each measuring approximately 12 inches long. Fold each length of yarn in half and use your tapestry needle to sew the folded end onto the frog’s body just below the head. Weave in any remaining ends and your frog is now complete!
