Frogs are one of the cutest animals out there. But how do you make a cute frog even more cute? Put him on a swing! This frog on a swing is so cute and funny, and so fun to watch! You can hang him up near your desk or by your plants 🙂 I recommend placing him by a fan to watch him swing!

  1. Thank you for such a fun cute project, hopefully he won’t bump too many heads at the doorway – LOL !

  2. I can’t see to figure out attaching the mouth to the head. I come up with the right amount of stitches but there is a gap of unworked stitches not connecting the mouth and head. Any tips??

  3. Had a little trouble with this one but it is complicated. Super cute though! Thank you!
