Free Simple Frog Video Pattern

My animal shelter bed is still being tested, but in the meantime, I’ve finally put up the video pattern for this cute little frog.  He’s very simply made.  The only difficulty is in using chenille yarn, which has no stretch to it and makes it hard to the see the stitches.  I think it makes it soft and lovable though.  Of course, it can be made with regular worsted weight yarn as well.  It will still be adorable.
