Flam, crochet fox pattern

Very playful, sturdy and cute. Meet my crochet fox amigurumi called Flam.

Flam, crochet fox

When I first published this crochet fox pattern in 2014, I was just at the beginning of my career as crochet animal pattern designer. Back then, I didn’t know how things would go in the future and what I posted here at my blog did not look as professional as it does today. So that is why this post really needed to be updated, and so did the pattern.

In the original post, I wrote about how pleased I was that the crochet fox doll resembled the sketch I made quite well. I always use a sketch as a guidance for the crochet version. Flam turned out to be such a playful doll and I love every bit of him.

Flam himself hasn’t changed that much, how could I, he actually is my best selling pattern! However, I did change his body and white belly, so it would look much rounder and neater. What really needed an update were the pictures. Nowadays I add many images to a pattern. Some helpful images next to the instructions and much more at the bottom of the pattern of the completed animal from all angles. Flam’s pattern looks all shiny and new now.

Just look at these new images of my crochet fox, I am so happy with the result. Below them you can find info about and links to buy the pattern.

Witch hat pattern

Because Halloween is coming, I made a little free pattern to have fun with.

Teddy is! Or maybe not…..

Here’s the pattern, a picture of just the hat is below.

For this pattern I used a fuzzy worsted weight yarn and a 3,5 mm / hook E. The hat is standing 10 x 12 cm / 3,9 x 4,7 inch.
The hat is made in the round in Double Crochet stitches. Join after each round and add a chain of 3 in the beginning of each round, as I’ve written in the pattern.

Mistakes in this pattern? Nooooo, can’t be, well if so, let me know and I’ll fix it!

 

I thought I was finished…

Today I finished, or at least I thought so, my little fox. But when I had sewed the parts together I wasn’t completely happy with the result. He looks beautiful, but something isn’t right. This is a first time thing. Normally I notice these imperfections when I pin a doll together, but this time it looked all right.

What is wrong? He looks a bit too long I think, or his head is just a tiny bit too small. I decided I’m going to make slightly smaller feet and body (which I already made about 6 times to get this one…oh dear). That way he should come out perfectly. Some of my friends saw him today and thought he looked great, but as long as I’m not satisfied myself I can’t rest….He must by perfect.

Here’s his face before I sewed it. That was a bit of a struggle also, because it came out smaller when sewed together.
