Crochet Fox Pattern Tips and Tricks

Nose/Mouth
Round 1: SC 5 in magic circle.
Round 2: SC INC in each around. (10)

Round 5: SC in the first 3. SC INC in the next. Repeat around. (25)
Rounds 6-7: SC in each around. (25)
Slip stitch in the next 3 stitches. Fasten off and leave a long tail to sew on to the face. Get a long piece of black yarn. Sew the nose on about row 4. You will see 5 sides of the nose, try to get the nose to be lined up on one of the sides. When you are ready to attach it, the bottom of the piece will be on row 27 and the top about row 35. Use pins to attach it. Sew it around and lightly stuff it.

Attach eyes between rows 37 and 38, about 6 stitches apart. Begin to stuff here. I also stretch the base of the head a little bit so it is more defined, more round than oval. Sew on the nose at this time as well.

With white:
Round 1: 7 DC in a magic ring. Chain 2 and turn.
Round 2: DC INC in the first 3. TRC. DC INC in the last three. (13)
Attach to the orange with the long tail by sewing along the outside stitches.
The ear won’t be a perfect triangle; you gently curve the ear when you attach to the head. This will make the indentation of the ear. Make sure you pinch the top of the ear to make it pointy. I use pins to pin both ears where I like them before I sew them. The sewing will keep the ears triangular.

*You will only stuff the first half of the legs and the arms.*
