Make your own mini fox head with one of my most popular knitting kits. This is one of my original designs and one of my favourites too. It's a fun project for anybody who knows the basics of knitting. My fox is knitted on straight needles and sewn together using mattress stitch, so there's no working in the round. The design gives the appearance of intarsia colour work, but there's no colour changing in the middle of the row making it a really fun project to knit.
