Yarn: Scrap amounts of the following colors in worsted weight yarn.
Green (or any other color you have for the earmuffs)
Materials / Tools:
Size G / 4.0mm crochet hook
Battery operated tea light
Red 3D fabric paint
Pink 3D fabric paint
2 – 10mm wiggle eyes
small paint brush
Note: The “face” of this project is worked in continuous rounds not joining.
Round 1: Make magic ring, ch 1, 10 sc in ring (do NOT tighten), place marker in 1st, move up as worked, do NOT join—10 sc. Round 2: Working in continuous rounds here and throughout, 2 sc in each around—20 sc. Round 3: Sc in each around.
* At this point I like to place the “flame” of the candle into the center hole and adjust making sure it fits snugly then I secure and weave in the center yarn tail.
Rounds 4-7: Repeat Round 3. Round 8 (optional): Repeat Round 3 if needed to fit tealight.
Fasten off, leaving long enough tail for sewing.
With green ch 2, work 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook, join with sl st to first sc, ch 12, work 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook, join with sl st to first sc. Fasten off leaving long tail for sewing.
Lay the earmuffs across the top of the face along the 5th row and sew into place. Next take a 10 in piece of yarn (or a piece of ribbon instead) and loop it right behind the ear muffs as a hanger so it will easily hang on the tree.
Next it’s time to put the crocheted piece on the tea light. Slide it on like a sock making sure the “flame” fits nice and snug in the hole of the face. Put your yarn needle on the tail you left and start weaving it around the last row tightening it just enough to fit snugly around the base of the tea light but making sure the on/off button is still operational.
Fasten off and weave in ends. Now give it some personality! First glue on the wiggle eyes. Next, paint the cheeks using a paint brush and a small amount of the pink fabric paint and then use the red 3D paint to make a mouth as shown in the picture.
May Your stitch count be true and your frogs be few!
