Crochet Woodland Animals


Having had a number of knitting projects lately (remember all those bobble hats?), I recently had the urge to pick up a crochet hook again.

It would have to be a quick make as I have too many things on the go to commit to another lengthy project, so I decided on a little crocheted animal from this gift box given to The Boys at Christmas – their little fingers are just not yet nimble enough to cope with something quite this fiddly.

The “Woodland Crochet” box by Kristen Rask, includes a book, hook and all the yarn needed to complete two of the animals, one of which is a sweet little fox that worked up in a couple of leisurely evenings.


I was happy because it looked exactly like it does in the book!

I snapped the eyes on to the white bit instead of the orange bit so they stand out more.

The whole thing only stands about four inches high and currently languishes on top of the pianola.

The tail acts as a stand, enabling the fox to stay balanced upright with ease.

The cute little upturned mouth appears to be a smile and gives him a happy expression – always essential on a soft toy, in my opinion:)

I might attempt the owl next – there’s something about owls which makes them quite endearing.

Of course, it’s Easter on Sunday – I wonder if I’ve got time to make the bluebird and her tiny chick?

  1. He is super cute, I bet the boys love him. It is so satisfying to make a project like this that comes together fairly quickly and turns out looking so good. When I was little I used to crochet but the only thing that anyone made back then were those crocheted squares of multi coloured wool that you then stitched together into a blanket. Nowadays there are so many gorgeous projects to try your hand at.

  8. Awww the fox came out so cute.. I am glad!! I know the other ones will be just precious! When you do the birds be sure to do two babies. Don’t want the baby to be all alone. LOL I will keep my eyes peeled for more of those kits. They are super cute.

    • Thanks Robin, the birds are done already as I had a free morning today. I only made one chick though, but she won’t be lonely when the two eggs have hatched!

  12. I don’t know what it is about crochet animals but they always look cuter than knitted ones. Which is a shame as I only knit.

    • I agree, crocheted animals look better than knitted ones – maybe it’s the more textured nature of crochet? Crochet is definitely easier to shape than knitting, too.


  13. Aww how long did he take you to make? Crazy how you call that a quick project. You’d probably finish before I figure out how to hold a crochet hook haha!

  19. How do you secure the eyes? Do the black eyes go thru the white rings?
