Hello Mr. Fox

Gosh, this week has flown! Tiny D and I have been busy with play dates, visiting Grandma and Grandad and catching up with good old friends. It's been thoroughly enjoyable :) I was aiming to do a crochet pattern for another baby blanket this week, but it's not quite finished yet. So I thought I'd have another stab of a pattern I unsuccessfully tried to complete a couple of weeks ago. A wonderfully woodland(y) Fox Brooch!


Do you like him? I have to say I must have remade this little guy probably around 20 times before I was exactly happy with the way he looked. I really wanted him to look kind of like a real fox but a little bit cute at the same time. I am soooo happy with him now and simply can not wait to display him proudly on my jacket :)


To make him, I used good old DROPS Muskat 100% cotton DK using a slightly smaller hook than I usually use, a 3.00mm. I used plain black beads for his eyes and a gorgeous vintage black glass button for his nose.




You can find the pattern in my shops as usual.



I hope you have fun making this little guy like I did :)
Have a great week!
Ta-tah for now,

xxx

  1. question, between rows 10 and 11, do you fold the piece in half and stitch together, not clear on how you are getting the shape that is shown in the picture without folding it.
