Free pattern – Foxy the Fox

Hi guys, I’m having some problems with my account so the pattern may look a bit rough at the moment, don’t worry it’s only cosmetic things..  I’ll fix it later tonight but now I’ve got to take a walk in this beautiful sunshine with my family! Happy Friday. 

All my love,

Tess

Foxy the fox! 


You will need:

A ball of orange yarn

A small amount of black and white yarn

A pair of safety eyes

A small amount of stuffing

For this little guy seen in the pictures I used Sandnes – Line (yarn), a 3.0 mm and a 2,5 mm hook, and 6 mm safety eyes.

 Abbreviations:

ch = chain

mc = magic circle

sc = stitch

inc = increase, make two stitches in one stitch

dec = decrease, make two stitches into one stitch

fo = finish off

The magic circle, a quick how to:

Hold the end of the yarn and wrap it around your finger twice. The end should be at your right. Put your hook under the first thread and over the second; hook yarn and pull through to make a loop. Yarn over and pull through the loop, pull lightly to secure. Crochet the given stitches, then gently slide the end of the yarn (from the beginning) out of the circle and pull to tighten! 

Body and head (orange, hook 3.0):

1. 6 sc in a mc (6)

2. inc, repeat around (12)
