Filbert Frog

Lion Brand® Vanna's Palettes

GAUGE:

Exact gauge is not essential to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:

kfb (knit into front and then back)
An increase worked as follows:
1. Knit the next st through the front loop, but do not remove the st from your left hand needle.
2. Knit the same st once more, this time inserting your needle through the back loop of the st. You will have created 2 loops (sts) on your right hand needle.
3. Drop the st from your left hand needle – you have increased 1 st.

NOTES:

1. Frog Head/Body is worked flat in 2 pieces, then seamed and stuffed.
2. Eyes, Arms and Legs are worked separately, then sewn on.
3. When you see "– 12 sts" in the instructions, this tells you how many sts you should have at the end of that specific row.
