Amigurumi Fox Crochet Pattern

The woods come alive in the fall! And so does Mr. Furu, the amigurumi fox and the newest addition to the amigurumi crochet in the Craft Passion family. 

Mr. Furu is an adorable fox amigurumi craft animal who bears a thoughtful expression on his face. While many people think foxes are crafty, sneaky animals, Mr. Furu is streetwise and quick to come up with solutions to difficult situations. Measuring 10” tall, this crochet fox stuffed animal is crafted with a 3.5mm crochet hook in orange, white, and black acrylic yarns.

This amigurumi fox is also unique – unlike normal amigurumi crochet styles, Mr. Furu uses the “split single crochet stitch”, also known as “crotchet knit stitch” or “waistcoat stitch”. This is done by inserting the hook between the legs of the next stitch. Using this in this crochet pattern will keep the colorwork vertically straight throughout the rounds.

Mr. Furu the amigurumi fox came to me while I was working on Puggie the sock pug puppy. Maybe it was because they both share that same youthful personality or that both love to run around and are playful. I will never know for sure but suddenly Freddy the felt fox popped into my mind and I thought to myself, “Freddy needs a friend!”. 

So it was that about a week (and many balls of yarns) later, Mr. Furu, the crochet fox amigurumi pattern was created and I really love how he came to be. I added some wire glasses and he was transformed from a naughty, happy-go-lucky dude to a smarty-pants. And that’s how he got his name Furu – F for “fox” and Uru from “guru” (which means “teacher”). Don’t you think that name suits him perfectly?

Mr. Furu loves to outdoors, and with his wire-rimmed glasses, he is always seen with a book. People often meet him and think, “This Mr. Furu must be a very intelligent guy. He’s always reading and must be thinking a lot about what he reads.” What most people don’t know is that the book he is carrying around is actually empty and full of plain paper with nothing written on them. What was it really? 

A sketchbook! Nobody knows Mr. Furu is an avid artist and loves to doodle what he sees around him as he walks around the woods, the prairie, and the hills. He’s pretty good at them too. The doodles he makes are as cute as he is, and make everything seem even more fun than they are in real life. Mr. Furu has doodles of almost everything he sees and everyone he knows. In fact, he loves meeting new people because it gives him more ideas for his doodles, and the more he doodles, the more ideas he has to improvise on his earlier doodles.

Sometimes, I feel like Mr. Furu too. Whenever I am in the middle of one craft, another design will pop into my head, and often, that becomes the next things I create. There have been times, many in fact when that new design distracts me from my current work. Confession time: that’s why sometimes there are lapses between my designs here (wink, wink). So, forgive me?

I promise to keep the new designs coming in as quickly as I can. Just remember to show me your crafts too, so I get more inspiration. 

Happy crocheting and don’t forget to tell me how your Mr. Furu turns out.

HOW TO CROCHET AMIGURUMI FOX, MR. FURU

  1. Crochet all parts for Amigurumi Fox with SSC stitches as instructed in the crochet pattern.

    Pic 1: This is how the inside of the colorwork amigurumi looks. You may leave the unworked yarn stranded as it is. If you have left a decent length of yarn between the colorwork, then you are fine to leave them as it is. If the yarns are too short, you may trim the yarn and knot them together as shown in Pic 2.

    Pic 2: Personally, I prefer to neaten my lengthy unworked yarn stranded across the colorwork section. The clean interior is easier for stuffing and shaping.
  2. Stuffed the parts accordingly.
    Align the muzzle of the fox amigurumi with the marking between the eyes as shown in the picture. Pin, sew and stuff the muzzle to the head.
  3. Position and pin the ears to the head after completing the muzzle. Make sure both ears are aligned and in symmetry.

    This is the top view of the head of the fox amigurumi. A better view of the locations of the ears.
  4. Position all other parts together. First, sew the head to the body. Followed by the arms, legs, and tail respectively to complete Mr. Furu, the Amigurumi Fox.

Mr. Furu, the Fox Amigurumi is done, put on his glasses and he is ready to go all out to the woodland.

Notes

Caution: This is a colorwork amigurumi using Split Single Crochet / Knit Stitch / Waistcoat Stitch method. Please DO NOT attempt to convert it to normal Single Crochet.

Why use Split Sing Crochet instead of normal Single Crochet?
Please take note that this amigurumi pattern is using Split Single Crochet (SSC), some may know it as Crochet Knit Stitch or Waistcoat Stitch. Unlike the normal Single Crochet, SSC inserts hook in between the legs of the next st. In colorwork amigurumi where stitches are crochet in the continuous round, SSC keeps the colorwork vertically straight throughout the round. It is because the hook is inserted in between the legs of the next stitch, but if you are using normal Single Crochet, the colorwork will lean to the right or left depending on if you are right-handed or left-handed.

How to change yarn color in colorwork crochet?
Follow the pattern to work on stitches in color A until the last yarn over, pull through the loop with the new color B. Leave the color A behind until it is time to work on it again. Continue to work in Color B until it is time to change the color back to A, on the last stitch in the color B, just pull through the color A on the last yarn over and drop the color B. Leave a decent length of the unworked yarn between the color change so that it won’t distort the shape of your amigurumi. Repeat this until you have completed the pattern.
Note: I don’t hide the unworked yarn between the stitches because it will cause distortion in stitch height, especially in the SSC stitch.

There you have it, Mr. Furu the fox amigurumi all ready to join your craft family. Just remember, he loves having friends around so go ahead and try other free crochet patterns on my blog. I recommend Dessy and Denny, the Amigurumi Donkey Crochet Pattern because I had so much fun with them too. 

You can always try non-animal crochet crafts too, like the crochet tote bag which is both practical and decorative. If you’re not super confident yet, don’t worry, just save the free crochet pattern for another day.
