Sam the SUPER Frog!


Sam is a very special frog. You see, Sam isn’t just any ordinary frog, he’s a SUPER frog! While he looks like a regular old frog, when he has on his super hero cape he can do amazing things! He’s able to leap over ponds in a single hop. He can catch flies faster than a speeding seagull. And most of all he can bring a smile to anyone’s face.




I'm so excited to share Sam the Super Frog with all of you! He has been a long time in coming, with the first one knitted up back in January. He went through some arm and leg changes while I tried to figure out what I liked best on him.


Upon completing the first of the final samples, my son declared that he needed to be "super" which involved wearing a cape. And that's when Sam was no longer a regular frog, but a SUPER one!


Sam the Super Frog is available for $6 as a digital download on Ravelry.
