Cube Foxy Fox Amigurumi Pattern

IMG_20181211_190308-01-01-01

Foxes are beautiful animals. I wanted to capture their cuteness in a cube form and make it available to you to enjoy and create. I've also extended the instructions to show you how to make a bigger version of the fox using chunky chenille yarn.

This pattern has on Ravelry.

Material

For the smaller Fox I used the following:

For the larger fluffy Fox I used the following material:

The instructions apply to both sized foxes, if there are any differences I'll indicate them clearly.

Abbreviations (US)

  • MC: Magic circle
  • 2-sc inc: 2 sc in next st (increase by 1)
  • 3-sc inc: 3 sc in next st (increase by 2)
  • sc2tog: 2 sc together (decrease by 1)
  • sc3tog: 3 sc together (decrease by 2)

Instructions

This pattern is made in a spiral of continuous rounds

To change color, use old color to do the first yarn over, then use new color to do the last yarn over and draw through both loops on hook to complete stitch. The stitch will count toward the old color but the following stitches will have the new color. To make it easier I’ll indicate the stitch where the color change happen with a comment (old color ➤ new color)

Let’s say the instructions are: sc x 6 (orange), sc (orange ➤ white) , sc (white)

It means sc x 6 orange, sc with orange for the first yarn over then do the second yarn over with white (still looks like an orange sc), then do one sc with white.

Assembly

IMG_20181125_193853-01

 

IMG_20181201_192916-01Start by attaching the snout on the fox body between the eyes. The snout is placed on R10 at the top and R13 at the bottom. The white side should be at the bottom as in the picture. Use the orange yarn tail to attach the snout to the orange parts, use the white yarn tail to attach the snout to the white parts of the body. This way it looks more seamless.

 

 

 

 

IMG_20190106_145923-01Attach the unstuffed legs to the bottom of the fox body. You can place them as you wish. You can see how I prefer to place them in the picture on the left. Tip, use pins to see how they look like before you sew them in. Also note that I also attach the middle of the leg to the body so it stays flat to the body. So it's not just attached on one end to the body.

 

 

 

 

IMG_20190106_145937-01Attach the tail at the back of the body on R11 and R12. If you want the tail to wrap around the body a bit more attach the tail a bit more to the body on the side. as per the picture.

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_20190106_145949-01Attach the ears so one end is on R3 and the other end is on R8. For extra cuteness place them so they curve a little as per the following two pictures.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


IMG_20190106_145959-01Note that the other end of the ear is placed a bit further back on the side. This side view shows it better.
