Mr. Furu, the Fox Amigurumi measures about 10 inches tall. It was crochet by using a 3.5mm crochet hook in the colorwork of orange, white and black Acrylic yarns. Unlike normal amigurumi crochet method, the pattern of fox amigurumi calls for “Split Single Crochet Stitch“, some may know it as “Crochet Knit Stitch” or “Waistcoat Stitch” where the hook is inserted in between the legs of the next stitch. By way of using Split Single Crochet Stitch in this pattern, it will keep the colorwork vertically straight throughout the round. (Warnings: Please do not attempt to crochet it with normal single crochet (US terms), it won’t work in the correct proportion in size, shape, and colorwork.)
While I was working on the sock pug puppy’s pattern & tutorial (my previous post), suddenly Freddy the Felt Fox appears in my mind, it just popped up without any warning. Seems like it was beckoning that I need to get another fox design develope soon. More than a week later, and after lots of unraveling of yarns, this Fox Amigurumi named Furu was done and I really love how it has turned out. I added a doll’s wired glasses and it immediately resembled the look of a cool academician. Therefore, I gave it the name Furu, F from fox, URU from “guru” (which means teacher).
I always have this wonderful chain of thought of “what’s next” to create while working on the existing craft. At times the new idea really carried me away from the current work-in-progress. I need to work on the new craft design (before the inspiration vanished from my brain) as soon as I completed the current craft. For this reason, processing and compiling all the info and updating of new pattern & tutorial at Craft Passion was adjourned, opppsss… I need more hands to be more consistent in updating. HELP!
Happy crochet and hope to see your Mr. Furu Fox Amigurumi soon.
