Pattern Description:

Includes one PDF file on 12 pages with all the instructions needed to make your own small sitting fox.

Pattern is written in English, using US crochet terminology. I included detailed instructions, many step-by-step photos and useful tips and tricks.

In this tutorial I will explain starting a piece with an adjustable loop (magic ring), finishing a piece, joining pieces, knotting and hiding yarn tails. Pattern includes unlimited support from me via email.

For a little preview, take a look at the first three pages - http://engsidrun.spire.ee/blogs/media/blogs/a/patterns/EN-053.04_preview.pdf

Gauge:

You can use the same pattern to make smaller or larger toys by using finer or bulkier yarns. Make sure to pick a crochet hook at least a size smaller than suggested on the yarn label and crochet tightly enough to achieve a tight gauge that will not allow the stuffing to show through the fabric.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 12 cm (4 3/4") tall, with sport weight cotton and acrylic blend and a 2,50 mm hook.

Materials:

  • Yarn. I used sport weight cotton and acrylic blend, 125 m = 50 g (137 yds = 50 g) / 5 ply / 12 wpi / 2: light. You will need about 25 g of orange, 4 g of white and 6 g of dark brown yarn.
  • 2,25 - 2,75 mm crochet hook (US size 1/B - 2/C) or according to the yarn.
  • Polyester fiberfill, wool, wadding etc. for stuffing.
  • 9 mm (1/3") safety eyes and a 15 mm (3/5") triangular safety nose or buttons, beads, felt etc.
  • Yarn needle, scissors, stitch marker.

Suggested yarn:

87 meters of Sport weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

G.F Knitting
