Finish off and weave in ends, making sure you leave the end open.  This will make it easier to attach the head to the body.  Sew the ears to the back of the head.  Use black yarn to make French knot eyes and stitch on a nose.  I used a few stitches to narrow the face in the area of the eyes to make the face more fox-like.  Use the brown yarn to stitch decorative markings on the fox’s face.

Finish off and weave in ends.  Sew the head to the top of the body (which starts at Rnd 1). The flatter side of the fox is the back, the curvy portion is the front.  The front feet should attach just below the rounded breast portion of the body.  The back feet should be sewn on at the base of either side of the body; the tail should be sewn on at the very back near the bottom.  Use the picture as a guide.

  1. This little guy is so cute. It doesn't say your name, however, so I can credit you as the designer when I make it or any of the other little amigurumi characters you have listed. I like to give credit where credit is due because I would hope people would do the same for me.
