Today I’m sharing a sweet design for foxy folk of all ages. Fox & Fleur is a stranded colorwork hat available to knit in 6 sizes: newborn, baby, toddler/child, adult small (teen), adult medium, adult large.
I designed the original cap as a baby shower gift for a friend’s baby girl on the way. Foxes and woodland creatures were the mommy’s nursery theme, so I ran with that and added a feminine touch with the tiny flower border (fleurs!) that runs above and below the fox faces.
I had this design test-knit by some awesome folks on Ravelry, and they helped to refine and enhance the pattern, so I know you’ll have a great experience. The pattern contains complete written instructions, a full colorwork chart, and tips for knitting the stranded colorwork.
Use any aran-weight, smooth worsted yarn that comes in a good range of colors.
It works for all ages, foxes are such a fun motif and so hot right now!
Check out the Ravelry projects page to see how the hat knit up for others!
I hope it makes you smile as you knit it and as you wear it. Whenever my daughter and I wear ours, we always get extra smiles from the people we meet. 🙂
