One of my favorite creatures is the fox, whether the more common red fox or the critically endangered Darwin’s Fox, I love them all. Even as a child I was fascinated by these unique animals that reminded me so much of a cat, but looked so much like a canine. They are cunning and swift and have gained the title “Trickster” in many cultures. A vixen is a female fox and is fiercely protective of her kits. She will usually have 3-4, but that varies.

You may need to borrow the fox’s clever ways to work on this pattern, but it will be worth it in the end. The Vixen is a fun scarf with cabling and twisted stitches that help form a fox’s face and paw prints in the midst of vines and paths of the forest.

Supplies:
· 100-125 grams fingering weight yarn (yarn used for sample: SoftnShiny’s Twilight Fingering Sock Yarn, 438 yds per 100gm )
· Size 3.75mm (US 5) or size needed for gauge
· Cable needle
· 6 Beads: 3 for each Vixen, size 6 or 8, I think that shiny black ones would look best
