This tutorial from Stins, it’s so much fun and so easy that I had to share this with you.

The pattern you can find here

Mirjam and her son created this clicker-frog toy together: he had the idea of making the click sound with a jar lid and together they thought it might be fun to make a crochet frog of it. Super simple!! In Dutch the word for “frog” is “kikker”, so they called this design: klikker!

To make this cowl I used two skeins Ribbon Xl which you can buy here. I love the ribbon XL because it’s made from recycled cotton and because it’s cotton it doesn’t itch and is not to warm, but feel free to use any other kind of material that matches knitting needles size 17

 Cast on 40 stitches en work in garter stitch, the width of the work has to measure aprox 16 inches. Than work in garter stitch till the work measures aprox 36 inches and cast of the stitches.


Put your work flat on the table and give it a twist, like shown in the pictures and close the short sides with an overhand stitch
