With this pattern, you’ll get two for the price of one! This knitting pattern includes not only an adorable fox hat, but mittens too!
The baby fox hat is a fast and easy knit, and the felt ears are sewn on when it’s finished.
The mittens feature adorable fox faces on one side, and fox paw prints on the other. They’re stretchy and comfortable, and oh-so-cute!
These fox mittens are knitted using two colors of sock yarn at the same time in a color work pattern.
