An original realistic crochet amigurumi Poison Dart Frog pattern by June Gilbank.
This frog is based on the'Blue Jeans' colour morph of the Strawberry Poison Dart frog (Dendrobates pumilio), a tiny tropical frog from the jungles of Central and South America. In real life, this little frog is only about 1" long, but the crocheted version is poison-free and a much more manageable size!
Yarn: worsted weight yarn in two colours, e.g red and blue
Hook: US E / 3.5mm
Additional info: You'll also need 3 pipe cleaners to make the legs poseable. The ends of the pipe cleaners are protected, but please be sensible and don't use this as a baby toy unless you skip the pipe cleaners and stitch the legs into position instead.
Size: approx 6.5″ long
