Fox Pillow
Every home needs a fox pillow! This is a good project for learning a few new tricks such as how to make a buttonhole using a yarn over. You will also knit back and forth while doing some shaping at the same time. These are important skills to learn to improve your knitting and continue making more challenging projects. Don’t worry, though: I’ll take you through the new skills step-by-step!
