Mr. Fox is fun little guy. He loves to talk you into doing silly things. I must thank Sasha with the Skein Shop for providing the yarn. This is NICE yarn. Thank You! Be sure to check out their website https://skeinshop.com/

This toy is Knit in the round using 2 circular needles, DPNs or magic loop method, I prefer 2 circular needles. See my video on how to knit in the round https://youtu.be/CwWTYSAzTlQ.

There is minimal sewing to make Mr. Fox. The Body, Arms and Legs are all one piece. Head and Tail are knit in the round as separate pieces. The head is sewn onto the body and the Tail is knit together with the body. A picture is included to show how to attach tail. The ears are knit flat. There is a little simple 2 color knitting for the ears. So all you sew on is the ears and head. The eyes are embroidered or use safety eyes.

This is a good pattern to try knitting in the round with 2 circular needles. (But you can use what ever method you like)
