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?
