Frog Kisser Slippers (3 Childrens Sizes)
Frog Kisser Slippers
3 Crochet Patterns
Three Childrens Sizes
Well, there’s no denying that this design was inspired by fairy tales…………kiss enough frogs and you’ll find the handsome prince and live happily ever after. Ahem! Choke! Gasp! Okay, well, a girl can dream, yes?
No matter what your philosophy on frog kissing and fairy tales, these are a really fun way to keep your feet warm. Loads of fun for playing leap frog in. And just an all around, timeless design.
I originally created this design as a baby bootie but we had such an overwhelming response from people asking for them in all sizes that we couldn’t resist the challenge. To maximize warmth I have designed them in half double crochet throughout and used a smaller than might be expected hook size. This close stitching lends to the warmth of the shoes (I can’t stand cold feet!) and also lends to the structured shape of the frogs.
I call this an intermediate pattern because the crochet stitching throughout is actually very basic. If you have your basic stitches down you shouldn’t find it too taxing. It does involve some construction. If you’ve ever sewn a stuffed animal you get the idea. If sewing is new to you then I’ve offered detailed instructions but a first time for everything requires some patience. In general though, even that is pretty basic. I want our patterns to be as workable for beginners as they are for the pros so if the instructions seem wordy at times please bear in mind that some people are just learning and we want everyone to be included.
This pattern includes three childrens sizes. You can find the adult sizes and baby booties, as well as the “Horney Toad” cousin slippers + lots more, on our web site.
There seems to be a great deal of discrepancy in childrens shoe sizes— both domestically and internationally. The sizes in this pattern correspond with the sizes that we have adopted throughout our pattern line for childrens sizes. I have included below each the current, most commonly used international sizes.

UK Size 5.5
Girls 7-8: 6.3 inches (16 cm) from toe to heel
