Get Foxy with The Bushcrafter
Happy Fall, friends! Today Jenny from The Bushcrafter is bringing you an easy beginning knit project with a woodland feel. Here’s Jenny:
These late summer / early autumn days are perfect for spending time outside. The air is crisp and clear and the low sun still keeps shining. Just the other week when I was taking a walk in the woods I spotted the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. It was a baby fox strolling across the path. The cutie hadn’t noticed me and looked all care free and with no worries at all… I stopped walking, stood still, and tried to be as quiet as I could and slowly watched the kit disappear into the bushes.
What I noticed is that they have a real cute nose and a fluffy tail that just waves around. When I came home I painted foxes all day and starting playing around with the idea of knitting a fox.
I ended up with an easy square shaped pattern that is perfect for someone that has tried knitting before and wants to try out changing color while knitting. This is what I´m sharing with all you here at Hideous! Dreadful! Stinky!
With this pattern you knit with two diffrent colors. Let´s get started!
We will be using knit and purl stitches. Knitting the first row with knit stitches and the second row with purl stitches. And continue to alter between the two of them. This makes the front surface nice and smooth.
Start from the bottom and work you’re way up.
When you are done with the front, you´ll need one more square for the back. Knit the back, same size, but with just one color:
Now you have two squares that you can attach to each other:
Leave an opening at the top of the square.
Stitch on the eyes and nose, and fill the fox with some soft material.
Close the hole and you got yourself a square fox!
If you want you can fold two pieces of fabric as triangles and sewing them on as ears:
