Newton the Fox lives in a cosy burrow in the desert. He’s currently planning an extension. After winning the ‘Maze digger of the year award’ his friends are now referring to it as the local Labyrinth. He’s an excavator by nature and is hoping one day to dig as far as he can go, if only all the fossils would stop getting in his way.

Newton is a good cuddle size, he measures approximately 7 - 8 inches sitting in a DK weight yarn. However, he can be made from any weight yarn and appropriate hook for different sizes. This is not a pattern for beginners, but it is an easy pattern to follow with plenty of photos, and if you run in to any problems you will always be welcome to contact me for any extra help.
