CONSTRUCTION NOTES
This sweater is knit bottom up in the round and almost seamless. Although it might look intimidating to knit it has a quite simple shape which requires no extraordinary skills.
The stranded knitting part is always worked in two colors and the highlighted parts of the head and ears of the fox are embroidered later on with a duplicate stitch.

The stranded knitting part and the stockinette stitch part do have a different gauge though. To avoid any bobbles or folds in the fabric, some decreases are made after the the Stranded knitting part.
The sweater is designed with a slightly positive ease and you can choose to either knit this sweater with two or three colors in total.
