Vulpix is a top-down shawl featuring a geometric intarsia motif in the center with slipped stitch texture. Short row shaping forms striped angular blocks within the fabric, which also creates a very generous wingspan and shallow depth. This foxy shawl was named after the also foxy Pokemon, Vulpix, with its six long orange tails.

This pattern is the March shawl for the Westknits Shawl Club. It will be available outside the club in May.
