Anyone else have children who loved that song and mercilessly shouted it at the tops of their lungs until it drove your crazy? I am thankful that song has quietly faded away.
Foxes have always been a favourite amigurumi of mine. Their adorableness and playful nature is perfectly captured in amigurumi. When searching for the perfect fox pattern, I settled on Lucy the Fox by Yarn Wave Shop on Etsy.
Banga Vaicekauskienė (the pattern creator) has made a fantastic pattern. It is well written and has several pictures to aid even a beginner crocheter. The pattern uses simple stitches – single crochet, increases, and decreases. It is very easy to adjust the size of your project by using a larger hook and a higher-weight yarn. The body and head are crocheted separately and sewn together.
I wanted to create a snuggly version of Lucy the fox, so I chose a 6.5mm hook and Bernat Blanket Yarns in the shades of Whipped Cream, Leather Rust and Coal. I used small scraps of Bernat Velvet for the inner ear and the nose. I stitched very loosely. If you are a tight crocheter, I would go up a few hook sizes if you are using a chunky weight yarn. Generally, crochet very tightly, and I did have to frog my first attempt at the head because I started off with my normal stitch tension and a 5mm hook which resulted in a cone-shaped head. I used 20mm safety eyes to complete the look. My final project was approx 16inches tall (tip of the ears to the bottom of the rump – legs not included).
Have you created a “little” fox using this pattern?
