Fox in a Vest
Fox in a Vest is knit from the top-down completely in one piece other than whipstitching the picked up front and back two colors ears together and about an inch on the top of the foot.
The vest is knit separately with sock yarn held doubled throughout.
It is a fun and adventurous toy knit!
The pattern will be available in my Ravelry pattern shop as a download in November 2014.
In June 2014 the pattern is for sale through Unicorn Books and Crafts and can be found in local yarn shops in print form.
