Vulpix crochet pattern

A wild pattern appeared! Lydia used ‘Crochet’. It’s super effective!
Yes, another Pokémon pattern, simply because they are all so very lovely to make ^_^ I’ve got a few more up my sleeve, but for now, you’ll have to make due with Vulpix.

If you have any questions about this pattern, feel free to contact me. Do note that I have slightly altered this pattern since I made my Vulpix, so if anything doesn’t come out quite like the picture, it’s because this one is based on the old pattern. The biggest changes are that the body is less fat (my Vulpix is a little chubby) and the hind legs have been altered to look more sleek.

Fo, leaving a long tail of yarn. Close the hole and roll up the top of the tail like you did for the hair roll, but leave the first seven rounds unrolled. Make sure to fasten the rolled up part tightly so it will not unroll itself. Thread the rest of the yarn through the tail to the tip (round1) and use it to fasten the tails to the body. Fan them out evenly (two should point straight upwards, while the other four are spaced out evenly on the sides)

And there you have it, your very own little Vulpix!
