Notes

Eyes - For whatever reason I could not get my french knots to work so I just needle felted some eyes instead.

Legs - after row 14 switch to knitting in the round. change from black to color A on row 12 (of the 14 stockinette stitches for the leg section). I knit the legs for 20 stitches instead of 14 (my lengthwise stitches always end up shorter than patterns say they should be).

Arms - knit in the round. change to black yarn on row 15

Tail -picked up stitches on body and then knit in the round

Sweater - did a fox head instead of a star and added green trim to match the green scarf I knit him.

Pants - gray

Next time I would add length and width to the sweater, it came out a bit small for my plump fox.

I wanted to add that the pattern was easy to follow and the designer is incredibly sweet and very quick to respond to questions. I so appreciate that. Seek out her patterns for sure!
