When sewing the tail, I attached it at the base and also added a few stitches higher up so it will stand up more. Sew on muzzle and tummy patch.

  17. Lucy replied:

    Hi there, this might sound a bit strange.. But I’m only a teenager and have absolutely NO idea how to knit or crochet at all! I just saw this fox and thought it was adorable, and I was wondering if it’d be possible for you to perhaps make one and mail it to me for a Christmas present for someone who has a fixation on foxes? If possible could you please email me at lucywilliams.is@hotmail.co.uk just to let me know if you’d be okay with that (with the postal charges and of course a fee for going to the trouble of making it for me), thanks a lot :)

  18. Caroll replied:

    This is a very cute pattern. I have a question though… what is a Magic ring? I have been crocheting for a few years now and do not know what that is.

    Thanks

  19. Nimoe replied:

    Magic ring is a technique to make the first round of your amigurumi look neater (it doesn’t leave a hole). PlanetJune has a tutorial here: http://www.planetjune.com/blog/tutorials/magic-ring-right-handed/

  20. Tracie replied:

    Thanks so much for sharing this. I’m going to whip it up as a last-minute Christmas gift for my 11yo daughter who LOVES foxes. It’s so adorable. Thanks!

  21. Josh Mundy replied:

    Woweee I love foxes and this is soooo adorable! :) I will have to start making one as soon as I get some orange wool! Thanks for the great pattern ^o^ x x

  22. Tin Unit replied:

    Thanks for sharing this pattern. I made it and it worked out really well. I’ve posted a photo of the one I made on my blog with a link to your pattern. I hope that’s OK.

  23. chovness replied:

    this is very cuteee! im trying to make one~ ^^ thanksss

  24. Mickeyt replied:

    I’m new to making amigurumi and have a question about ending the rows. Aren’t you suppose to slip stitch to the beginning stitch of each row to end it? Or do you just keep going in a circle? Unsure of how to “end” each row. Help!

  25. eon replied:

    hee,im making two for a friend, one with boulcy? lions brand homespun, in white in place of carrot, rococo in place of black and tudor in place of white using a size I hook, then a small one with grey insted of carrot

  26. fern replied:

    I think that your fox is a vary cute and cuddly.(smile)

  27. AEC replied:

    Nimoe, you are so talented! I see that you do not want your patterns distributed, but if I ever felt like making and selling the finished work, would you be opposed to this as well? I would give you full credit for the patterns if so. Just checking before I did anything to offend you. :)

    BTW, I probably won’t get into these, but I want to have them as an option as long as you’re ok with it.

  28. Chelsea replied:

    I’ll be changing the colours to make a wolf! There aren’t many good wolf patterns out there. So thanks!

  29. Jess replied:

    Great pattern!! A friend of mine asked me to make her a fox and this one is perfect!

  30. Victoria replied:

    I love it! I am gonna make this ASAP! It is so adorable!!!!

  33. Neko Namari replied:

  34. Genevieve replied:

    I’m just learning to crochet and my 18-year-old son asked for a fox. Going to give this pattern a try. Thanks for posting.

  35. Liz Smith replied:

    Just wanted to let you know that I made this for my mom (her mother’s maiden name is Fox, so she collects them), and I’m very happy with how it came out. This was a very easy pattern to work with, and I can’t wait to give it to her for Christmas! Thanks!

  36. Smith replied:

    This is my very first amigurumi. So cute! I’m making an arctic fox, instead of an orange one. <3
    May I make a suggestions though? I found as a beginner, I didn't understand that I didn't join after each row. That I was supposed to just go around in a constant spiral. Perhaps you could put up a warning for beginners to watch for this? Sorry if this seems like it's naive. I'm only a beginner…

  37. Kerri replied:

    I love this! I just finished one for my boyfriend, since foxes are his favorite animal. For the eyes, I instead embroidered them (to look more like the Keaton mask in Zelda).

  38. PseudoShea replied:

    This was my first time making amigurumi and I love how my fox turned out! http://blueskies21.deviantart.com/gallery/32365666#/d4lbha3

    I do have one question. Someday I hope to sell the amigurumi I make (because this project sparked a huge interest in this type of crafting :) and I was wondering whether this pattern is meant only for personal use or whether it is also alright for commercial use.

  39. Nimoe replied:

    Hi there PseudoShea! What a wonderful project–looks great! :)

    I’m glad to hear you’re inspired. I would ask that my patterns be used only for personal use. Thanks for asking!

  40. Anja replied:

    Sooooo sweet, thanks !!

  41. Susannesusanne replied:

    What a cute little fox!!!! Thanx for sharing!!! Is is ok when I translate your pattern to dutch for our crochetclub? I’ll mention your name and blog as the source and wont change a thing!!! Greetz susanne

  42. Claudia Morgan replied:

    I love the fox pattern. Can you tell me how to attach the pieces and
    with what kind of thread? Thanks!

  43. CB replied:

    I love it so much! I am making it with a few adjustments made here and there, but it is very sweet! I linked to it on my blog because it inspired me to create a teardrop tail. Here is the link to the post: http://theartdrawer.blogspot.com/2012/09/how-to-crochet-teardrop-animal-tail.html

    Thanks for the adorable pattern! And, no matter how much I wanted to, I did not repost your pattern in any way. ;)
