I bet your kids never imagined they would be taking naps alongside a fox! This Fantastic Fox Pillow is an easy crochet pattern to make that will be treasured for years to come. Not only is this an insanely cute crochet pattern to enjoy, but it's also functional in more ways than one. Aside from being a super comfy pillow, this is one of the most unique crochet designs ever because it actually has a hidden pocket that it meant for stashing pajamas. How neat!

I'm having an issue understanding the sides of head (3 rows each) connecting them to the snout. Has anyone tried this pattern? Just curious to find out if its written correctly. Thanks!
