Frogs are so cute, and when I was asked to design a frog tea cosy, I thought a tea cosy of a frog would be a lovely thing to knit.

This is a very big old frog because he's the size of the teapot. I designed the frog to be in a sitting position, so his head is elevated and he's pushing up on his forelegs. I found this the best position for the frog to accommodate the teapot.

I love his eyes on top of his head. The eyes are set into humps and I have used yellow cat's safety eyes on the horizontal to give him froggy eyes.

Around at the back I have created him a bottom to give the frog that torpedo shape that they have.

At the side you can see he has big powerful legs, and the classic webbed feet.

Down his back he has a series of lumps and stripes.

He's a lovely tea cosy to knit and looks great with lots of realism. He's perfect for people who adore everything froggy.

The frog tea cosy is just hopping into keep the teapot hot.
