Crochet Fox with Green bow tie

FOX CROCHET AMIGURUMI PATTERN

The snuggle Fox is my second amigurumi in my woodland snuggle collection I have planned for you! This is so exciting and happy to have him available to you for free! They will all be worked up from legs to body and head all in one piece. If this is new to you, don’t be intimidated! Once you make your first one it will make sense as you go. I have also provided links to help with how to join the amigurumi legs. The entire project uses SC stitches, increases, and decreases. Super easy! You also have the option to make the eyes as you wish. Because of how the amigurumi are made, you can apply safety eyes if you’d like as you get halfway through the head portion of the pattern.

Feel free to post pictures of your finished projects and/or links to your shops so all can see! I love when you tag me @arianaehall on all social media!

Please no sharing pictures or patterns are allowed. Feel free to make as many to sell and gift. I just ask to give credit to Ariana Hall. Thank you!

CHchain

ST – stitch (stitch space)

Sl Stslip stitch

SC – single crochet

SC DEC – single crochet decrease

INV DEC – invisible SC decrease ( decrease using FLO)

Read Before beginning:
  • STITCH MARKER – You will be working in rounds so keep a stitch marker close to use when working up the doll. Unless otherwise stated to CH and turn. They will mark the 1st st of each round.
  • TENSION – Make sure you use a tight enough tension to help close any “holes” a loose tension may cause. I crochet yarning under then Over to create a tighter stitch. Go down a hook size if needed. ( my tension is naturally tight)
  • ASSEMBLY – The amigurumi is worked up by first making two legs, joining them together, and working up the body and the head in one piece. Arms, ears, bow tie, nose, and tail are separate.
  • BLUSH (OPTIONAL) This is optional but you could also use blush to add some sweetness to the cheeks. I use cosmetic grade blush using a dense small brush and little at a time.
  • PATTERN (EX. *SC in 8, INV DEC in the next. Repeat from * to the end. (36) ) You will end that round with the second step of what that round instructs. This will vary.
  • How to color change:

    Before yarning over and finishing the last stitch of that round, Yarn over the new color to join.

    Cut off the yarn from the previous color and secure with a knot with the piece of yarn when you joined the new color.

Don’t overstuff on rounds 25 and 26. You want to keep it a little flat so the tail lays down nicely.

Sew the tail in the lower back approximately on Round 30 of the body. I placed the tail facing up to sew on the bottom.

Bow tie:

You will need some worsted weight yarn, and an E crochet hook (3.50mm)

CH 20

Join with an SL ST to the first chain making sure not to twist the chain.

CH 1

SC across every chain (20) Join to the first SC and CH 1, do no turn.

Keep working a total of 4 rounds joining and chaining 1 every time.

When finished,

Fasten off and leave a long tail to wrap tightly in the center of the bow approximately 10x, and leave some yarn to sew right above the chest piece

Happy Crocheting!
