Photo Principale

Useful informations

  • If you print this pattern, feel free to tick the small ○ next to the rows when you have finished them !
  • The fox has an approximate size of 20cm (7.87") high using the recommended material.
  • This pattern is written in US terms.
  • The 4mm (G) crochet hook is only used to make the hood, the other parts are made with the 3,5mm (E) crochet hook.
  • For the yarn, you can use any yarn as long as you use a corresponding hook. According to this, your fox will have a different size than the reference size indicated.
  • Increases and decreases are written in order to have a perfect circle, to obtain a more beautiful result. I invite you to read this blog post from Ahooka to learn more.
  • This pattern is worked in the spiral : don't close the rounds with a slip stitch unless otherwise indicated. Learn how to finish a project in a spiral here.
  • To make the legs and the leaf, it will be necessary to know how to crochet on both sides of the chain. An other link from Ahooka's blog.

By buying the pattern on Ravelry, you will be able to download several versions : the classic version with many pictures and the "Eco-Friendly" version with written explanations only : no pictures, images or colors. Both versions are available in French and English.

The classic version contains 10 pages with more than fifty step-by-step pictures to help you with the more complex steps.

The instructions are detailed row by row to make it easier for you to find your way around.

If you want to print the pattern, I suggest you to print the "Eco-Friendly" version and refer to the pictures of the classic version on your pc, tablet or mobile when necessary.

When printing, please tick "Fit" instead of "Actual size" in the dialog box.
