Boy fox in a star spangled sweater
This listing is for an extensive PDF file which contains full instructions for knitting and finishing off a little fox boy with a star on his sweater and shorts. Once paid for it is available for you to instantly download.
The file is 15 pages long and contains over 50 detailed step-by-step photographs along with full pattern instructions and tips for stuffing, seaming and finishing neatly. It is less of a knitting pattern and more of a ‘how to’ manual.
The pattern is for knitting flat on two needles and all pieces are seamed afterwards. Please note that this project is not a quick or simple knit. It takes me around 14 hours to knit and finish each of the animals that I make and just under half of that time is spent on the finishing off. There are lots of separate pieces which require seaming and sewing and if you are looking for something fast and easy you would probably be better off finding a different pattern. That said this PDF file will give you all of the information and techniques that you need to knit the little fox pictured.

I’ve been making these foxes since 2007 and there are lots of ideas for colours on my blog and my flickr photostream (check out my profile for links)
