Foxes in Love ( free pattern )

IMG_0792
So I ended up making another Valentine themed Amigurumi. They started out of pure laziness, I’m just being honest here, I had the Orange and cream downstairs and didn’t want to walk upstairs to get different yarn! But I fell in love with him and decided he needed a girlfriend, I mean who was he supposed to give his balloons to?!
They were officially finished last night and this morning I looked out my bedroom window and saw a fox walking across the frozen pond out back! Perfection! I took it as a sign so here’s the pattern so you can make your own little couple.
