Make your own fox head with the mini version of my ever popular giant one! This is one of my favourite designs, and a fun project for anybody who knows the basics of knitting. My mini fox is about half the size of my giant fox, you can see them both together in one of the photographs. My fox is knitted on straight needles and sewn together using mattress stitch, and there’s also some intarsia colour changing. The yarn for this kit is 100% wool for a luxury feel, and chunky knit yarn so it can be knitted up quickly.
This knitting pattern won’t teach you how to knit, but my new book First Time Knits can take you from beginner to knitter in nine fun (and cute) projects.
FINISHED SIZE: 18cm x 20cm x 15cm (7in x 8in x 6in)
