Melly Teddy Ragdoll Fredrick Frog Part 2

Melly Teddy Ragdoll Fredrick Frog Part 2

BODY

Make one. Using colour (APPLE GREEN) yarn, chain 32 and slip stitch into the 1st chain to make a circle.

Helpful hint: we are working in rounds.

Helpful hint: the chain 1 at the beginning of each round does not count as a stitch, but it is important to make the chain 1, and you will see why as we go along – it makes a nice straight seam – make the chain 1 loose otherwise the seam will “pull” up on this side.
