    1. You are very welcome, Rachel! :) When you finish making it, please feel free to send me a picture of your new friend at! :D

  6. I sure will! It might be a little while though because i had to order safety eyes :)

  7. very cute but im a visual learner. wish this was on youtube so i can learn how to do it better. :3

    1. What a great idea! :) I will try to make one if I have any extra spare time. ;)

  8. Hello Anna,

    this little fox is adorable. But I'm from Germany and also have not very much knowledge in this. It would be so nice, if you could give me a short legend, what the given instructions are. f.e: ch2, sc, st, sts. So it would be easier for me to understand. I'm not familar with this short terms.

    1. Hi there! I can totally understand how hard it is to see a bunch of weird abbreviations(it has happened to me many times before.:))! You can look at my abbreviations page if you are confused by any abbreviations. You can either click the link at the top of the page or use this link:

      Hope this helps!! :)

  9. ♥ i placed the link on my public FB site

  10. Thank you SO MUCH! He's soooooo cute! I love and collect fox's. And thanks for your generosity. I can't wait to crochet him. Skye

    1. Thank you so much! I am glad to hear that you like my fox. :)

  11. The finish ears is not the same at the picture, the pattern is wrong , i think the row 4 isn't go here... The fox is adorable! Thanks!!

    1. I looked back at the pattern, and i think it is correct. I will look back though just in case. thanks for letting me know!! :)

  13. Hi!!! I just thought You'd like to see the Fox I made with your pattern. :)

    I did make a couple of adjustments, instead of doing the head and body as separate pieces I joined them into one piece by not working the last round of the head and going straight into the second to last round of the body and working the rounds backwards. I also could not get the ears to look pointed, so I made corners in the ears by inc in the 'corners' of the round. (sc inc, sc, sc inc, rnd 2 sc inc, sc sc, sc inc ect) Thanks so much for the pattern and the inspiration!! It's so adorable!! :D

    1. Hi Blissy! I saw your fox and it look awesome! I love how the fox is grey. :) Thank you so much for making the fox and I am glad you liked the pattern. :)

  14. Thanks! Your little fox is beautiful!

  15. Hi im from philippines. I love the fox you made its so adorable and cute, hoping that i can make one too. I will post my fox as soon i finish it.

    1. Thank you! I can't wait to see the finished product! :)

  16. Hey! I’m looking at the body compared to the head and it looks sooo small. Plus, the arms from the pattern look like half the size of the arms in the picture

    1. Hi there! The head should be almost twice the size of the body because I like chibi-like proportions haha but if you don't like those proportions, you can make the body bigger by making the foundation circle bigger by one rnd. You can insert the rnd: {sc 3, 2 sc in the next st} repeat around. (30 sts) right after rnd 4.
      As for the arms, if they seem too small, you can make them bigger by using a bigger sized hook.

      Hope these tips help!! :D

    2. Yes, thank you! I really like it too! ❤️. I kept the body the same size but made the arms with 8 stitches instead of 6, and added two more rows, and that worked! I’m also using that tail pattern you shuggested. I’m actually make a white fox- I’m making a whole collection with slightly different patterns, like bears, bats, owls, dogs...! Thanks!

    3. Sounds awesome! Hope your collection turns out well <3

  17. Hey! I was wondering if I could sell some of the animals I make from your pattern? I could just sell the ones I change up some- I could also credit you for the pattern. What do you think?

    1. Hi! Yes, you can sell the finished product as long as you give me credit for the pattern :)
      Thank you for asking! <3

  18. Thank you for sharing this cute pattern. Hope i can make them too for my kiddos. Thumbs up for you Anna S. :)

    1. Aww thank you so much :) I hope it turns out well for your kids!
