This is a crochet tutorial for making a cute frog plushie that can be easily made into a keychain or used as a fidget toy.

A PDF pattern can be downloaded here, or a video tutorial is available on my YouTube channel:

I have made this a couple times using different yarn.

The orange frog is using Flinders Cotton 8 ply, which is a very thin 8 ply, so I used a 3mm hook. This is shown in the video.

The light green fuzzy frog is using Nippers yarn, which is 10 ply, so I used a 4.5mm hook.

When testing the pattern, when I used Scheepjes Cahlista Cotton 8 ply, I used a 3.5mm hook.

Recommended equipment:
• 8ply yarn
• 3.5mm hook (test to see if you need to size up or down)
• polyfill stuffing
• yarn needle
• Scissors
• Pins – optional for adjusting placement during construction

I use US Terminology in all my patterns, in this tutorial I reference the below (this list is included in the PDF):
US Terminology = UK Terminology
