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.

Son’s fox

My next project will be a crochet fox, not a Starfox this time, but a Son’s fox. Foxes are one of my favourite animals, and still I haven’t made one, a real one that is.

It took me quite a while to design the fox, because it was a bit difficult to choose the style. Should he have realistic proportions, standing on four paws, or should he be more doll-ish. I’ve made a bunch of sketches and decided to go for doll-ish.

Why? I really don’t like crochet dolls that look like a statue. I would love my fox to be flexible and playful, so he can sit on the couch or sleep all stretched out next to a pillow. Some people will make a crochet doll to decorate their side table or bookcase. It would be just lovely if you can change his position. One week he’s sitting, the next he’s hugging a vase or leaning against a lamb, it makes him alive and gives you a laugh, well, me for one.

I hope, that when he’s finished, I can post some pictures of him in different positions and places, that would be cool. But here’s the sketch for now.

He looks a bit basic maybe, but when I picture him in fuzzy wool I love him already. I can choose the orange I used for Starfox, but I think I’ll go for a darker, more rust colour. A bit too dark for a real fox, but I think I like that more for my fox. That same rust colour I’ll use for another upcoming project, a squirrel…..
