F is for Fox: Crochet Fox Applique

Here is Day 6 of my 26 Days of Crochet Animal Alphabet Appliques!
F is for Fox


This fantastic fox is a cute and trendy woodland creature who would look lovely on any Fall inspired piece! Someone made a great suggestion on my FB page that you could crochet two of them and sew them together to make a little keychain. Love that idea and it could apply to any of these appliqués!

Materials:
– Worsted weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Teracotta and in Rust for the below tutorial. And a little bit of black and white for the face embellishments
– Size G Crochet Hook (the bigger the hook the bigger the appliqué and vice versa)
– Tapestry needle
Abbreviations:
French Knot Tutorial
Sl St = Slip Stitch
SC =  Single Crochet
HDC = Half Double Crochet
DC = Double Crochet
TC = Triple Crochet



Fox Applique Pattern:

Starting with orange…
Chain 3, 2 SC in second chain from hook and in last chain (4 SC)
Row 2-5: SC in each stitch across, chain 1, turn (4 SC)
Row 6: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next 2, 2 SC in last, chain 1 turn (6 SC)
Row 7: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next 4, 2 SC in last stitch, chain 1, turn (8 SC)
Row 8: SC in each stitch across (8 SC)
Do not turn, continue to SC around edges. When you get back to the top right corner, chain 4, SC in 2nd chain from hook, HDC in next, DC in last. Skip 2 stitches and join to next stitch with a slip stitch. Slip stitch in the next 3, repeat from * to make the second ear. Fasten off leaving long tail.

Attach white yarn right under ear. Chain 3, TC, DC, DC, HDC, HDC, SC, slip stitch to join. Do the same on other side of face but working the stitches in backwards order (attach yarn, SC, HDC, HDC, DC, DC, TC + chain 3 and join). Fasten off and weave in ends.

Using your tapestry needle, stitch on the ears with white yarn and the nose with black yarn. Make two french knots for the eyes.

    Oh, Sarah! This is great! My friend likes badgers and I've been messing around with a pattern for quite sometime. Your pattern will be great to use in black and white to make her a pin she has been asking for. Thanks!

    Just wondering – when you go to do the second ear, the pattern says to repeat from * to do the other ear, but where is the *?
    Lovely little fox, am trying it out now. Thank you!

    Thank you so much for the whole alphabet in CROCHET. I’m not making a blanket but I love putting little animals on my crocheted jars. Something different from flowers. Your directions are very easy to follow and its so wonderful when you spend time with something and it looks like what it IS when your finished. (Guess you can tell I’m a little bit of a beginner.)

    Thank YOU for sharing.
    Debbie (from Texas)
