Pica Pau’s Crochet Frog is a very fun pattern to make. I think my crochet frog came out absolutely adorable and I am so happy I made him. in today’s crochet pattern review I will be discussing my changes to the pattern to achieve the look of my version of the Pica Pau Crochet Frog.
Pica Pau Crochet Frog
I crocheted my Pica Pau Crochet Frog, [which my daughter Julz named Mr. Froggie] using all I Love this Cotton Yarn and size 14mm safety eyes with a size a 2.75mm crochet hook. The colors I used are the following:
- Serene Spa
- Warm Blush
This Pica Pau Crochet Frog Pattern included some new-to-me crochet techniques. I have never done a method of crochet known as Jacquard, which is a type of color work with floats in amigurumi. I also did some seaming to finish portions of this crochet pattern which was also new to me in an amigurumi pattern.
I found the techniques to be pretty ok to do, not that difficult. I had to do the jacquard about 4 times before correcting my tension. You can crochet this pattern without the fancy color work underwear, however, I think they add too much charm to not include. You can do color work, don’t give up if you find you struggle with it.
A big modification I made to this pattern is the shorts. Not only did I crochet the pants in all Antique Gold to give my frog more of a Mr. Toad look (yes, I know totally different animal) I also changed my foundation chain from 60 Single Crochet down to 50 Single Crochet. Because of this change, I whip-stitched the underwear closed to make it smaller and then ladder-stitched the bottom of the shorts closed to make the fit a little bit wider because I changed the foundation chain by 10 sc.
I think this pattern was a pretty good pattern. I really enjoy the imaginative world of Animal Friends of Pica Pau, the crochet book you can find this pattern in.
