🐸Free Pattern: Crochet Froge Birthday Cake🎂



Hello all!


Here's another tutorial for this froge birthday cake inspired by oracle bakery from Instagram! I am always in awe with how whimsical and intricate their cakes are, but I won't be able to ever order one from them due to my location so I am inspired to make a crochet version of their cakes!

-Make popcorn stitches and repeat for entire round, leaving the spot for the froge blank.

-Sew the bottom opening of the popcorn stitch row onto the cake as shown in the picture.


Popcorn stitch


-5 dc into the same stitch

-Drop your hook from the last stitch, and insert your hook through the top 2 loops of the first double crochet of the group

-Grab the dropped loop with your hook and pull it through the stitch

-Slip stitch into the next stitch, and make another popcorn stitch in the next stitch. Repeat for the entire round.
