Leggy Froggy 

Free Tutorial and Pattern

Welcome, fellow crafters! Today, I’m excited to show you a delightful project that combines the efficiency of a circular knitting machine with a bit of crochet. We’ll be making an adorable Leggy Froggy that’s not only easy and simple but also fast and incredibly fun to create. If you’ve never crocheted don’t worry. It’s very simple and I show you how in my beginner crochet video tutorial as well. So, grab your materials and let’s get crafting!

Video Tutorial:

First off, I’d like to mention I have a Leggy Froggy video tutorial here that can assist those who prefer a visual pattern tutorial for the leggy froggy using a circular knitting machine.

Materials Needed:

Step 1: Circular Knitting Machine 

Start by using your 22-pin circular knitting machine to knit the body of your Leggy Froggy. Cast on with waste/scrap yarn (5 rows minimum). With your main color yarn, knit 40 rows. Cast off with waste/scrap yarn (5 rows minimum).

Step 2: Close the Tubes

Close both tube ends using a crochet hook. Find where you cast off and count from the yarn end back to the 11th stitch of your main color yarn. Place your hook inside from the outside in and then grab the stitch above (12th) and pull thru your loop. Next, grab the stitch on the opposite end (10th stitch) and pull thru the loop on your hook. Continue grabbing the stitches on opposite ends and pulling thru the hook. After the last stitch you will grab the yarn end to pull thru the loop to fasten off. Remove waste yarn. See photo or video for reference. Tuck one end of the tube inside the other end making a pocket.

Step 3: Crochet Legs and Arms

Now, let’s add some crochet magic to give our froggy some character. Starting with the legs:

  1. Slip knot, insert hook into bottom corner of the closed end of your frog. (See photo for reference) Chain 1, Single Crochet into the same stitch. 
  2. Chain 20.
  3. Slip stitch into 2nd and 3rd chains from the hook.
  4. Chain 3, slip stitch into 2nd and 3rd chain from the hook
  5. Chain 3, slip stitch into 2nd and 3rd chain from the hook, Slip stitch into the stitch you slip stitched into in row 3.
  6. Single Crochet down the rest of the chain and into the first stitch you started in. Fasten off. Tie ends and weave in.

Do this again on the opposite corner to finish off the legs.


  1. Count up 9 stiches from one leg. Slip knot, insert hook into that stitch. Chain 1 and single crochet into the same stitch.
  2. Chain 15.
  3. Slip stitch into the 2nd chain from the hook and then the 3rd chain.
  4. Chain 3, slip stitch into the 2nd and 3rd chain
  5. Chain 3, slip stitch into the 2nd and 3rd chain. Slip stitch into the stitch you slip stitched into in row 2.
  6. Single crochet back down the chain and into the first stitch you started in. Fasten off, tie ends and weave in.Leggy Froggy Arms and Leg
Step 4: Adding the Details

Add safety eyes to the frog.

Sew the mouth between the eyes.

For that extra touch of cuteness, sew a small amount of pink yarn under each eye.

See photo of the facial features for reference and placement.

Step 5: The Finishing Touch

Don’t forget to stuff your froggy, giving it a nice plump shape. Now, you can sew the top of the leggy froggy head closed using the main color yarn and your darning needle. Tie off and weave in yarn ends.
