crochet frog with green and blue swim shorts in someone's hand

Flippy, the crochet frog amigurumi toy, is ready to jump into your heart! It has many months since we added a free pattern to our Juna Series of amigurumi animals and we’ve been thinking about what animal to crochet next. We asked many of you on social media and realized that an amigurumi frog free pattern would be just the thing to add since, if crochet were to have an animal mascot, it would definitely be a frog! (For any beginners out there who are unfamiliar, the term “frog” in crochet means to open up your project because you just “rip it, rip it” lol!)

This amigurumi frog pattern is really quick to make. Like all the other amigurumi animals in the series, this is an easy crochet frog pattern. So if you’re looking for an amigurumi pattern for absolute beginners, Flippy the crochet frog is a great pattern to begin with!
