Pip the Tadpole


£10.00
Say hello to Pip the Tadpole, an adorable addition to the mini menagerie and a great pattern to help anyone new to crochet learn the basics. Tadpoles, or polliwogs, are young frogs or toads that you may see swimming in ponds during the spring in the UK. The name for these baby amphibians derives from old Middle English, meaning 'toad head' or 'wiggle head' which captures their personalities perfectly!

TOFT’s Edward’s Menagerie collection is a series of crochet amigurumi toys designed by Kerry Lord. This crochet animal kit contains TOFT’s quality pure wool yarn and an easy-to-follow downloadable pattern. There are video links for all the crochet stitches and techniques used in the pattern to get you started and help you complete your toy.
