What you'll need:
Of course you'll need the basic body pattern found here
Red Heart
Comfort yarn in Tango 3232 for the body, a small amount of black for the tips of the ears, and a small amount of white for the muzzle and tip of the tail.

Use the same hook size you used for the body
blunt end yarn needle for sewing
scissors
you can use felt, buttons, yarn or paint eyes on. I used 7.5mm safety eyes in between the 8th and 9th row for one fox and yarn wrapped around the 8th row for the other.
Click here for the Wee Fox video. We make the parts in this order: Ears, Muzzle then tail followed by how to sew it all together plus add in yarn eyes.
 
Ears: starting with black

1) magic circle or an adjustable loop with 6st (6)
2) 1sc then 2sc in next st (9)
3) 1sc in next 2st then 2sc in next st (12)
4) (switch to orange in first st, sl st next st, 1sc next st then 2sc in next st) for the remainder of the row, 1sc in next 3st then 2sc in next st (15)
5-7) 1sc in each st for 3 rows
sl st next st and f/o leaving a long tail for sewing. Do not stuff. Pin the ears on before sewing them in place. Please view the video for the best results.


Muzzle: with white
1) magic circle
or an adjustable loop with 6st (6)
2) 1sc then 2sc in next st (9)
sl st next st and f/o. Whip stitch a nose in before sewing muzzle to the head.
I hot glued the muzzle onto the face of the wee bear (not pictured) which works great for me. If you choose to do the same, make sure to not add so much glue that it oozes out onto the face because you won't be able to get the glue off. If you sew it in place, put 4 pins in to ensure it does not move around while sewing. Again, the video will walk you through this part if there's any difficulty.


 The yarn eyes are wrapped around the 8th row with 5 visible stitch holes between them. I then dabbed white paint on them to give the eyes a bit of life. works great! 




Tail:
starting with white
1) magic circle or an adjustable loop with 6st (6)
2) 1sc then 2sc in next st (9)
3) 1sc in next 2st then 2sc in next st (12)
4) 1sc in each st for 1 row
5) 1sc in next 3st then 2sc in next st (15)
6) 1sc in each st for 1 row
7) 1sc in next 3st then 2tog (12)
8) 1sc in next 4st then 2tog (10)
9) 1sc in next 3st then 2tog (8)
10) 1sc in each st for 1 row
11) switch colors next st then 1sc in next 7st (8)
12-19) 1sc in each st for 8 rows

20) fold end flat, ch1 and crochet through both sides closing up the edge f/o leaving a tail for sewing.
