Fox Crochet Cushion cover | Free Pattern

You will need
Cushion pad - I think this was 14 inches and I bought it from Amazon for about £2
4mm crochet hook
Orange, white and black wool 
Wide eyed needle 

1. To make the base of the cushion cover I crocheted 2 large circles, one of white and one of orange using double crochet stitches. 

I used this tutorial and simply expanded the number between the increases to make the circle big enough to fit over half of the cushion pad. 

2. I connected the two circles with a double crochet with the orange wool (which in hindsight I wish I had done with slip stitches or single crochets, but it still looks okay this way, it just gives it a bit of a rim), inserting the cushion pad half way through. 

3. To make the extras, I used the following pattern: 

Start with black wool & 4mm hook, make 2ch
Row 1: 3dc in 2nd ch from hook - turn
Row 2: 1ch, 1dc in each of next 3 sts - turn
Row 3: 1ch, 2dc in next st, 1dc in net stitch, 2dc in last st - turn
Row 4: 1ch, 1dc in each of next 5 sts - turn
Row 5: 1ch, 2dc in next st, 1dc in next 3 sts, 2dc in last st - turn. Change to orange
Row 6: 1ch [1dc in next stitch] to end - turn
Row 7: 1ch, 2dc in next st [1dc in next st to last st], 2dc in last st - turn
Repeat rows 6&7 until desired triangle is formed
I made it long enough that once the end is sewed onto the seam, the nose would go just over the middle of the circle.

This same triangle pattern is made for the paws and ears also.

Paws x4
Follow head pattern until Row 7. Repeat rows 6 and 7 four more times.

Follow head pattern until Row 4 (or desired length if you would like longer ears.

I then sewed these on using the needle and the orange wool. I added two sleeping eyes onto the head and attached the ears on top.

Voila - your own fox cushion cover!
