Amigurumi Crochet Pattern of a green frog who makes music on his banjo

Nelson the frog and his banjo


This is Nelson, he's playing the banjo!! It is his lust and his life. He plays on a 4 string banjo, which is best in the hand for his 3 fingers! Actually, a banjo with 4 strings is widely used for Dixieland / jazz and Irish music. But Nelson also plays his bluegrass songs on it with ease! If his peers want to sing a song, Nelson likes to make the music!


For which music lover are you going to crochet this cute frog?
