Little Fox Square Pattern
by Elizabeth Mareno
Continuing with last week's theme, I expanded the little squares set and designed three more. This is the Little Fox Square. The finished size is roughly 3.5-4", so it's not very big at all, and it won't take up all your patience with detailing, either!
Scrap amounts (about 1/2 oz each) of fox color (sienna or reddish pumpkin), secondary color, and edge color.
Large eye needle for weaving in ends.
Abbreviations US terms:
MR- magic ring
SC- single crochet
