Essential Crochet Supplies for Crochet Frogs

Before starting your crochet frog pattern, read through your supplies list and gather everything you’ll need. While each pattern is different, here’s a quick rundown of the most common supplies you may need:

  • Crochet hook
  • Yarn
  • Polyfill
  • Embroidery thread
  • Other notions (tapestry needle, felt, stitch markers, scissors, etc.)
  • Safety eyes (Please note that safety eyes are a choking hazard for children under 3, so consider embroidering the eyes instead if you’re crafting for little ones.)

What is the best yarn to use for amigurumi frogs?

Choosing the right yarn can really bring your amigurumi frog to life. Most patterns recommend DK or worsted-weight yarn. Generally, you’ll want to avoid fluffy yarns, as they make it tricky to see and count your stitches. 

We’ve included the suggested yarn for each pattern to make it easy.

Crochet Techniques You’ll Need

Here are some of the most common crochet techniques that you’ll find in these frog patterns:

Tips for Crocheting Frog Patterns

Here are some tips and tricks to help you with your crocheted frog project.

Use stitch markers.

Stitch markers make it easy to keep track of your stitches and rounds as you work. With stitch markers, you can spend more time enjoying your project and less time worrying about counting!

Use an invisible single crochet decrease for a neater look.

This invisible single crochet decrease technique is a great way to achieve a neat, polished look.

Go for a smaller crochet hook.

A smaller crochet hook creates a tighter fabric, which is perfect for amigurumi. A tighter fabric means the stuffing will stay put inside your frog and won’t show through or pop out of your stitches.

Don’t overstuff.

When you stuff your frog, it’s a good idea to start with less stuffing than you think. Overstuffing can make your frog too stiff. Remember, you can always add a bit more stuffing before seaming, if necessary!
