Four sleepy foxes (madra rua)adorn this cosy, bobble hat. The hat is worked in the round from the bottom up in garter stitch with short row shaping on the ear flaps before graduating into two colour fair isle and finally, central double decreases in stranded work shape the crown. The fox’s features are added afterwards in duplicate stitch. Make a pompom to finish the hat. This slouchy bobble hat is just what you or your little one needs for winter. There are two sizes in this pattern, child and adult. To make a larger fitting hat, just bump up your knitting needle size!

Pattern update to include another size for the big kids.
Child, (adult); 25, (28) cm by 49, (53) cm excluding bobble.
