Intrepid Fox is an ideal design for showcasing beautiful yarn and makes an excellent gift for all ages. The design uses small amounts of three or four different colours of 4 ply yarn, making it an ideal project for using left over sock yarn.

Intrepid Fox can be knit with a plain body, using only three colours or with a fair isle hearts and diamonds design using four colours.
