Amigurumi Crochet Fox Pattern – “The Chubby Fox”

This post is also available in: Español

The chubby fox, formerly the best hunter in the forest, unfortunately so good that he killed so much prey until he went from being the best hunter to the fattest hunter in the forest.

Nowadays he teaches young foxes how to hunt, only in theory of course, while he’s stuck in his den until hopefully one day he’ll be able to leave it again…. as soon as he fits through the entrance again.

This cute amigurumi fox is not only a little friend to cuddle but also has many other fantastic uses thanks to its aerodynamic and well-padded shape. Be it as a wonderful gawking doorstop, as a likewise gawking throwing projectile to hunt down prey yourself or as a paperweight.

This crochet fox is exclusively crocheted with single crochet stitches in spiral rounds with increases and decreases and is therefore perfect for beginners.

The depicted amigurumi fox has been crocheted with the “Schachenmayr Catania” yarn with a 2.5 mm crochet hook and has a length of 19 cm and a height of 8 cm.

Assembling

Pupils: The pupils are 6 mm safety eyes which have to be shortened a little after attaching to the eye so that the eye itself is not unintentionally deformed after sewing it onto the head.

Push the safety eye through the middle of the crocheted eye. If you have problems pushing the safety eye through the middle of the crocheted eye, take a crochet hook and pierce it through the middle to enlarge the opening.

Then attach the washer and cut short the stem of the eye with scissors.

Eyes: Sew on the eyes 1 stitch row after the Creme colored area on the head. The eyes should have at the narrowest point a distance of 1 stitch to each other. Make sure that the pupils point forward towards the muzzle.

Legs: Sew the front legs left and right 1 to 2 stitch rows after the “neck” (after the row that was crocheted only into the front loop). Sew on the legs so that the “feet” (the round part of the legs) are attached lower than the bottom of the body. Then sew the hind legs at the same height as the front legs at the back of the body

Ears: Start sewing the ears directly at the transition between the head and body (in front of the row crocheted only into the front loop). Try to sew the ears over a large area as possible, to create a more organic look to it, as if the body and ears are one part.

DONE!
