Tips & Notes

  • Rounds are worked in continuous spirals; do not join. Do not turn work at the end of each round.
  • Crochet into both front and back of each stitch.
  • Time saving finishing tip—when changing yarn colors crochet around the yarn ends, this way you will have less ends to weave in at the end.

    I'm confused. On the leg, you have rounds up through 12 and then the pattern indicates to stuff the leg. The next instruction is round 16 (decreasing to finish off that part). Am I missing something, possibly the instructions for rounds 13 through 15?

  • EL says:

    Thank you for your comment. The instructions for the leg have been updated. The last round of the leg should be 13.

    Hi, I'm having trouble with the head. Round 3 doesn't seem to add up. I only get 5 white stitches and 6 terra cotta. Can you please clearify?

  • EL says:

    Hi, Thank you for your feedback. I updated the instructions to make them clearer. I hope you enjoy your little fox.:)

  • Unknown says:

    White 2 increases, terracotta 1 increase (18 sc)9W, 9T, in the head, what does that mean?

    Hi, I hope this makes it clearer for you. You start round five with 7 stitches in White and 8 stitches in Terracotta. This means that in two of the seven white stitches you will increase by working 2 sc into 2 sc. It does not matter which stitch. The terracotta you will increase by working 2 sc into one sc. It does not matter which stitch you make the increase. What matters is the number of stitches you have in each color at the end of the round. The same holds true for round six and seven.
