It’s me, Jessica with Nice and Knotty.
It is baby season in my neighborhood apparently! I had another request for a baby shower gift and this time the baby’s nursery is woodland themed. This baby fox was too cute not to make for this perfect opportunity!
This little guy is the ultimate baby woodland creature. He was so easy to make and even easier on the eyes! I absolutely love his little tail!
What Materials Do I Need to Crochet a Baby Fox?
- Worsted Weight Yarn – Red Heart With Love Yarn in Tigerlily and Red Heart Super Saver yarn in White and Black
- Poly-fil Stuffing
- H8/5mm crochet hook
- 9mm safety eyes
- Yarn needle
- 5-inch sewing needle
- Stitch marker
- Baby Fox, Paid Crochet Pattern by BunniesandYarn via Etsy
The pattern says to use a 2.5mm crochet hook with sport weight yarn. It does say that you can make a bigger toy by using a larger hook size and heavier yarn, which is what I did. (I couldn’t find any sport weight yarn in the colors I wanted). Plus, I personally like my baby toys a little bit larger. I just think big plushies next to tiny babies is the cutest thing ever!
How Long Does it Take to Crochet a Baby Fox?
The baby fox is made in several tiny pieces that need to all be stitched together. It took me 2 hours and 45 minutes in total to complete. The intricate stitching took the most time. All the individual parts of the body worked up quite quickly.
If you follow the pattern, the fox should measure to about 3.5 inches tall. My fox measures at 5.5 inches in height and 3.5 inches from each end of each arm.
Gauge (Not Essential):
There is no gauge given for this pattern from the designer. Using the hook and yarn size I used, my gauge is 16 stitches by 24 rows to equal 4 inches.
This pattern was really easy to follow. There are pictures provided along with helpful notes. The stitches are written in US terms, but the designer did provide the UK conversions as well.
Something that was new to me was that the body and the head are open on the ends that go together. I am used to having two spheres to attach to one another so having two openings to stitch together was a new experience. That said, I did do an extra row of single crochet in each stitch around on the bottom of the head and top of the body. I felt like I needed the extra stitching room given the size of my hook and yarn.
The designer of this baby fox pattern also has a couple dozen more “baby” version patterns for animals and characters that you should take a look at. I mean, who doesn’t like the “baby” version of anything?
