Amigurumi

Foxy Alabama (6 cm)

This little crochet amigurumi fox (appr. 6 cm height) came to life when I was pondering over a gift for a male friend. Surprisingly, from all the kinds of amigurumis I have made so far, this crochet fox seems to be particularly favoured among guys. Initially, I gave it a winter cap and a scarf; now, in the hot months, a summer hat seemed reasonable. My Foxy Alabama (inspired by the determination and love for freedom* associated with a fox) requires an intermediate to advanced level (the hat can be particularly nerve-racking, because it requires the thinnest yarn available) and for an advanced crocheter it might take about 5 hours to complete (incl. the hat).

* Alabama was home to Martin Luther King and the starting activism against segregation in the South

What do you need:

start

  • for the body: 2 colours of super fine to fine yarn (recommended hook size 2.0-3.0 mm; e.g. Cottone fine by Lana Grossa, Schachenmayr Catania fine). I used a white and beige yarn
  • for the nose: a black colour of light yarn (recommended hook size 3.0-4.0; e.g. Schachenmayr Bravo Uni)
  • for the “straw” hat: a light beige Diana yarn (preferably size 20; use a hook size of 1.5-2.0 mm for that, if you want to create a holey look)
  • a pair of safety eyes at 6 mm size
  • a scissor
  • a fine darning needle
  • wadding

Skill level: intermediate
