Flynn the Fox · Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

I am having a lot of fun making amigurumi with Bernat Blanket Yarn! One of my recent projects was done using the fun pastel colors of  pink, white, and grey.  I was so satisfied with the results, that I went ahead and crocheted another furry friend.  Meet Flynn the Fox! 

Flynn’s design features include:

  • A pointed nose with a beautiful forehead curve (check out my amigurumi face shaping tutorial here)
  • Ragdoll arms and legs
  • Rounded hands for children to easily hold onto
  • Realistic pointed toe shape for his feet 
  • Clever color changes for the ears and tail
  • A no-sew body.  The arms, legs, and tail are attached to the body with crochet methods! 

Yes, you read that last part right.  Flynn's entire body is no-sew!  So, how in the world did I attach the arms, legs, AND tail?!  Well, here's a video tutorial to show ya.  The only sewing required for Flynn is to attach the ears to the head, and the head to the body.

You can customize Flynn using the traditional fox colors of red, black (or dark brown), and white.  Or, you can opt for a pastel look with the pink, grey, and white that I selected.  Different yarn fibers, such as velvet, can also be used instead of blanket yarn for a soft look! 

This pattern is very beginner-friendly as it really only uses the basic amigurumi stitches of single crochet, increase, decrease, and the magic ring.  The only "fancier" stitch is the drop stitch, which is super easy to do if you know how to sc, plus I have photo references to explain the method.   

I'm quite happy with the result, because it not only was SO fast to work up using super bulky yarn and a large 6mm hook, the finished doll is unbelievably soft and squishy.  Flynn is also such a huggable amigurumi because of his ragdoll shape and soft body.  Those long limbs make him easy to carry around.  

I think he'd be a wonderful addition to baby nurseries, and perfect for animal, woodland, safari, or zoo-themed kids rooms!  He's gender neutral and a great gift for both baby girls and boys.  

For some size reference, Flynn is about 13 inches in height.  He's pretty big compared to my usual amigurumis, such as the various Pocket Pixie dolls

Oh, and guess what? Flynn's best buddy is Rumi the Red Panda here, who is actually a tad bigger than Flynn! Aren't they a cute duo?  Both are very quick and fun to crochet.  Check out their shared page here to see my little girl with them! 

Here are the differences with Rumi, though: Rumi's pieces are sewn on.  If you prefer not to go with my no-sew method (which may seem intimidating to beginners who are more familiar with crocheting pieces separately and then sewing them on), Rumi would be a great option.
