Vulpix Crochet Pattern With Video Tutorial

Wahhh, I have been so busy lately! Between work, school, surgery, and not moving overseas, I haven’t had a moment to sit and work on a video in ages. There have been a lot of requests for Vulpix over the years so it seems a shame to only have it on Patreon. My patrons have kindly agreed to allow exclusive tutorials like this one to be released for everyone to enjoy so I’ll slowly be releasing patterns. Perfect timing since I don’t have time to make any new ones at the moment. As soon as my move is finished, Studio Crafti will become my full-time job and I’ll have all kinds of time to make new tutorials. Until then, enjoy making Vulpix!

HAIR (FRONT):

Orange Yarn

1. Cut several pieces of orange yarn, about 10 cm long.
2. Using a latching technique, attach the yarn pieces to the front of the head along the line where the back hair curls are sewn.
3. Once the pieces are latched in place, brush it out with a pet brush, or other wire bristle brush.
4. Using a curling iron, or flat iron on low heat, smooth out the yarn and brush it one more time so it lays flat and there are no tangles
5. Cut the yarn in a “V” pattern with the hair on the side shorter and the hair in the middle longer
