Francois is an adventurous backpacker -
His foxy good senses means he’s no amateur!
He can hear animals underground
And make twelve vocal sounds
And hoards food all the time since he’s quite the fierce snacker!

I loved making this fox kit! I made a few kits from The Woobles before attempting the fox. This pattern was a bit more challenging than the others, but if you've done any of the other intermediate kits you can definitely make this! It turned out wonderfully because the pattern is so easy to follow and includes the tutorials you need inside. I LOVE the detachable backpack - I think it gives this fox a lot of character.
I would absolutely recommend this kit! It's so nice having a kit for something like this with more yarn colors so you don't need to go hunt down each bundle of yarn yourself. There is plenty of yarn and stuffing to spare.
One tip - when making the white stomach of the fox, don't pull the white yarn too tight as you're crocheting the orange. I'd recommend even leaving some extra slack on the white yarn in each row near the back of the pattern so that when you stuff the fox the yarn in the middle doesn't constrict. This way you can avoid a fox with an hourglass figure haha.
Definitely get this adorable kit - you won't regret it!
