What could be more fashionable this winter than an adorable baby fox hat and matching mittens?
This pattern is too cute not to knit!
This fox hat will fit most babies ages 6-12 months, and the mittens will fit babies under 12 months. The fox hat is so incredibly easy to knit, the average knitter could have it done in less than an hour. This makes it the perfect last minute baby shower or birthday gift. Not that anyone would ever wait last minute for such a thing….
It’s also a great project for beginners as it doesn’t have any decrease stitches or tricky parts. If you can knit and purl, you can make this hat!
What could be more cute for your little one this season than a foxy hat and matching mittens?
The hat is wonderful as a stand alone, but if you want to add a little extra love, the mittens are just as cute as can be, and this pattern comes with instructions for both projects!
The mittens feature adorable fox faces on one side, and fox paw prints on the other.
These mittens are knitted using two colors of sock yarn at the same time in a color work pattern. If you’ve never done stranded knitting with two colors before, they’re the perfect project to get you started because they’re small and not intimidating. They’re knit in the round with the foxy faces on one side and fox prints on the other.
Stranded knitting is actually much easier than it looks, and learning this skill opens up so many possibilities for knitting projects.
