Crochet this adorable Amigurumi Fox Rattle with this free pattern designed by guest designer Ana Carolina @littlecrochetfarm is no exception. This pattern will make the perfect baby gift! I love the simplicity of the toy shape plus the little details make it unique and, the use of the Front Post single crochet between the head and the rattle toy handler make it firm and with a better shape.

ASSEMBLING YOUR AMIGURUMI RATTLE

  1. With the help of pins, fasten the snout between rounds 12 and 20 of the head. Sew the snout.
  2. Place the top head in the finished rattle. Make sure that the central backside of the head top is touching the edge border between the head and the handler (round 22 of the head). As shown in image 07. Sew it around the head.
  3. With the help of pins, fasten the ears on the top of the head where it looks symmetrical to you. I sewed the ears starting in round 6 and finishing in round 11. Leaving 8 stitches between them.
  4. Sew the snout detail in the tip of the nose.
  5. Now, take a piece of beige yarn and make a couple of uneven lines on the red part of the head. With the leftover yarn, make a couple of lines in the central part of the ear. Like in images 08 and 9.
  6. Embroider a sleeping eye in round 14 and 15 taking the length of 4 stitches.
