Foxy


I just happened to finish knitting the most adorable hat pattern I have ever seen.
I did not make this for any special reason, nor was I planning on knitting it. It was simply a case of seeing this design and having to have it... right now.

I am so enjoying the current popularity of woodland animal patterns, and this one is no exception.

Meet Foxy!


This unbelievably cute hat was knit from the Foxy & Wolfie pattern designed by Ekaterina Blanchard and I used two very beautiful yarns from my out of control massive yarn collection. 

The orange skein is the beautiful Snow Capped Yarns Olde Salt Collection in the Rusty Anchor colorway from Cordova, Alaska. The Cream color yarn is Big Bad Wools Weepaca in Raw White. Both yarns were wonderful to work with and I am happy to have found these perfect colorways in my stash for this hat!

I made the toddler size and it somehow fits both of my kids. I think my 3 year old son has a giant head and my almost 9 year old daughter has a tiny head. Works out perfectly.

In other news.. both of my children love this hat. My knitwear-hating son actually asked to put it on.
Wow.



This little hat makes me so happy.

Pattern is available HERE.

This is absolutely adorable!! It looks cute lying flat, but actually on a little head is when the magic happens. Looks like you'll have to make another one so each kid can wear one.

This is super cute, and my also three year old, fox-loving son would love it. I'm going to have to see if I have some stash yarn I can use...

Hi Never Not Knitting ~

I found your great blog post via Ravelry. I'm knitting the same hat and am super stuck on the three needle bind off. The pattern says to put RS together and MC in front. The way my rows worked out, the WS are together when the MC is in the front? How did you tackle the three needle bind off? Any insights? Thank you so much ~ Morwenna
