How cute are amigurumi foxes?? I just love those little guys.
When we lived in London, we did see urban foxes around. The first time I ever saw one was in the fenced dog park section of the local park. I said to my husband: “Look at that weird dog!” But it wasn’t a dog at all. I always thought it was so lucky to have wildlife so close, even in the city.
And as crocheters and knitters, we’re even luckier, to have the skills we need to capture some of that cuteness and bring it into our homes!
I’ve selected 25 crochet fox patterns, plus 10 fox knitting patterns (scroll down for knitting patterns) for you to choose from. I’ve made sure to include lots of free patterns as well, so all you need to create some of this cuteness today is a little bit of orange yarn from your stash!
Plus there, one BONUS pattern you just have to see – make sure you scroll all the way to the end!!
Of course, all pictures remain the property of their authors: be sure to click through and visit the patterns!
Look at this little cutie! I love his snout, and the tummy details. This pattern has been created lots of times, so you know it’s been well tested and yours will turn out great.
Look who’s all dressed up!! What colours would you crochet the scarf in? A lot of fox patterns suggest using them as Christmas tree ornaments, or winter decorations, which I think is such a cute idea.
It’s a scientific fact that everything small is cute! This little guy is only 3cm tall – awww. You’ll need sport weight yarn and a 2mm hook to crochet him. Good lighting will help too!
Isn’t this sweet? I love the happy expressions on both mother and baby’s faces, and the clever muzzle detailing.
I love this so much. What is a fox doing flying a plane?? How does he work the controls if he only has paws, and the paws are crocheted?? Is the plane crocheted too?? I seriously love how whimsical this pattern is!
This sweetie has such a mournful expression – don’t you want to hug her until she cheers up? I love the attention to detail that has gone into creating her sticking-out snout too.
Look at this cutie! He can balance right in the palm of your hand. I love how this design is quite abstract, but still says “fox”!
This pattern looks like it would be quick to whip up. Be sure to click through to the pattern too – these sly little foxes have other woodland friends in the collection!
Another set of amigurumi foxes wearing scarves! It’s the must-have accessory of the fashionable fox. I love how these two have stubby little back legs – it looks as though they are balancing on their tails.
This fox amigurumi pattern is named for its expression, but the tail really stands out for me. The designer has been really clever and used loop stitches to give it a lot of volume.
I love this crochet fox’s round tummy! There’s something so cartoonish and sweet about this fox, and I also adore the classic teddy-bear mouth.
Awww – another one which you just want to pick up and snuggle! Look at those arms reaching out for a hug.
Why ‘Lisa’? Why not! Look at the snout on this cute little fox. I’ve looked at a lot of fox crochet patterns this afternoon, and I’ve never seen another nose quite like it.
I love the perplexed, open expression on this fox’s face. Plus, those pointy ears are just perfect!
horse fox of a different colour! This cutie is probably the most abstract creature in our roundup, and maybe one of the cutest too!
If you click through, you’ll notice that this creature has quite a back story! I love all the details on this piece, like the way the paw pads disappear back into the legs, as if the fox is wearing a sweater with too-long sleeves. The picot edging on the tummy is divine as well.
Doesn’t this fellow look like a loveable ruffian? Just look at that cheeky, open expression! This crochet fox is very small – designed as a Christmas ornament – but you could always size him up if you wanted to.
This simple crochet fox pattern looks like it would be fast to whip up! I love the long nose on this cutie.
Here’s something a little more abstract – a girl dressed as a fox! I think this is a really clever pattern, and I love the removable tails.
Look at this cutie! I love how the eyes and nose are worked, and that tail is just so adorable.
Here’s something a little different – this fox is a ragdoll! I think this would make a really sweet ‘lovie’ for the little person in your life.
What’s cuter than one fox? Two amigurumi foxes, of course! This pattern really shows how little details (like the colour of the yarn and the bows and eyebrows) make a huge difference to the finished amigurumi.
This wee cutie is dressed up in a waistcoat! I love the wide-legged stance and quizzical expression.
Another abstract pattern. This version really highlights the amigurumi foxes eyes.
Finally, here’s another sleep fox amigurumi. Better yet, this is a free pattern!
That’s all the crochet amigurumi foxes I have for you today! Don’t forget to keep on scrolling for the bonus pattern at the end. But before we get onto the knitting patterns, I think we need a little musical interlude…
This is a really classic knitted teddy look, but with a ‘foxy” update! It’s knitted flat on straight needles then seamed, so it would be a great choice for a less-confident knitter.
This little fellow is all ready for a big night out in his spiffy jumper! I love dressed up animals – what a cutie! This pattern uses novelty yarn to good effect. Furry novelty yarn can be really hard to knit with, but it looks like it’s worth the effort in this case.
Here’s another dressed-up fox! This more complicated pattern features overalls you can button and unbutton, and even take right off! If you strip him down, he’s even wearing a lovely knitted pair of knickers.
Another tiny fox! This little guy is part of the super popular Mochimochi Land series, so you know the pattern will have been well tested. In my experience, Mochimochi patterns are super cute and quite easy: basically just icord with attached details.
Awww! This sweet pairing is unlikely to be seen in nature, but there’s no reason you shouldn’t knit it! Can you imagine the stories you could tell with a stuffed fox and squirrel? They remind me of something out of a children’s book.
This little sweetie is hand felted! Hand felting is really very easy, with a pure wool yarn and a little bit of time. I love how felting completely changes the characteristic of the fabric.
This fox is much more realistic than some of the other amigurumi foxes on this page. If you want to create the most realistic fox amigurumi, then this is your pattern!
This knitted fox seems to use a lot of shaping techniques in the tail, but isn’t the effect just lovely? Definitely worth the effort! This cutie has had a big day – it’s time for bed, little one!
Look at this cutie’s expression! I love his pleading look, and the way he’s so small he fits right in the palm of a hand.
Finally, here’s another teddy-style fox. I love how this version is slightly under-stuffed. He looks so huggable!
Pattern number 36 is this adorable cat hat! Poor kitty doesn’t look too happy about it!
