Jamie is inspired by the Scandinavian red fox, a gorgeous and majestic animal with the most ­amazing copper-red fur. The fox is often the ­symbol of ­trickery and cunning. Where I grew up, brushes, boots and horse tack kept disappearing ­mysteriously on a regular basis - only to be found in the forest a few days later close to the big fox-burrow.

Jamie the Foxx is a triangular lace shawl with a slight crescent shape. The shawl is worked top-down in garter stitch which makes it a quick and easy knit. A variation is to knit the white parts in stockinette stitch to get more texture ­definition. The pattern is adapted for the yarn from the ­Swedish company Ullcentrum, but also works well with any sport weight yarn (approximately 300-350 m/100g).
