Does your coffee table seems a little bare?

Why not cheer it up with a hungry tadpole or two swimming amongst a group of waterlilies?

Not only can you have fun waggling your tadpoles around the place, but your lily pads can also double as fun coasters!

The ButterflyLove pdf Hungry Tadpole knitting pattern gives you clear step by step instructions to knit:

  • a tadpole
  • a large lily pad
  • a small lily pad

It only involves knitting flat and this pattern is suitable for a beginner/intermediate knitter

You can also contact me at any point if you need technical advice or have any other queries.

What you will need:

Tadpole: 10-20g black or dark gray yarn for the body, 10g red or pink yarn for the mouth, 5g white yarn for the eyeballs, 2 black toy safety eyes (6mm), Polyfil

Big Lily Pad: 20g bright or dark green yarn

Small Lily Pad: 10-15g light or pale green yarn
