Fantastical Fox Hat
Foxes have been one of my favourite animals ever since reading Fantasitc Mr Fox as a child. My Fantastical Fox Hat is a homage to the humble fox.
The hat is knitted in the round from the bottom up, with the fox’s face knitted using intarsia in the round, then the nose is added by picking up stitches and knitting a shaped piece that is stitched down. The ears are knitted separately, then stitched in place, and the eyes and nose tip are added using black buttons.
The hat is knitted in a DK-weight yarn at slightly tighter tension than usual to make the hat nice and cosy.
