Foxy fun in crochet
It starts with Simply Crochet issue 10 again and I won't say how it goes, just the amendments because you really should go buy this excellent pattern!
It was the cute fox purse on the cover ( that is a coin purse to any Americans reading along - not a handbag....)that ''made'' me buy it. It was one of those HAVE TO HAVE IT moments?
I did mine with 24 g of terracotta or rust coloured wool from Patons Diploma Gold that was in my stash as a single ball.... and I bought a little Cream fuzzy soft Snuggly DK baby wool from Sirdar.( my scales could not measure it, the finished fox weighs 24 g) Then with 3.5mm hook I set off and followed the pattern for the HEAD first, and only did as many rows as the width of my phone.
Then I turned and worked straight until I had a phone flap and the back cover all made in dc.
I found the buttons in my ''button box''and did consider embroidering closed sleepy eyes as in the pattern, but I like him THIS way and now I can talk to him without waking him up.
He looks quite attentive so I can pretend he's listening! He looks more attentive than JJ that's for sure!
Goodnight from me and Au revoir from le renard....
