Fox Scarf Knitting Pattern- women & child sizes

Free Fox Scarf Knitting Pattern by Gina Michele

  

 This fox scarf knitting pattern is a fun take on the fox stoles that were considered the height of glamour in the 1920's and 30's. I always found the original ones kind of creepy and sad, so I decided to do my own cruelty free take on it! This scarf may look complicated but it's actually pretty easy to knit. It's a combination of garter stitch mixed in with some ribbing. A hidden loop under the fox head holds the tail in place while you're wearing it. I think this little guy turned out pretty cute and best of all, no foxes were harmed in the making of this scarf! Happy knitting!
For sizes adult & child
Yarn:
1 Skein: 1 Skein:  Needles:

  5. When you complete the ribbed portion do you increase back to 32 stitches for the head? So far it is looking good. Thank you.

  8. i am brand new to knitting so i thought I'd give this a try. I'm doing awesome on it, and I'm following the pattern with no problems...but I made the mistake when I started it and used 5mm needles...not SIZE 5. I think I'm too far into it to start it over, so I'm going to continue. I hope it doesn't make it too big

    1. Oh dear, I used the wrong needles and yarn size too (American sizes always fox me. :P ). The tail width 19 cm (7 1/2 in) but it's nice and warm!

  14. After the ribbing do we continue another 20 inches or continue until the scarf is 20 inches long? I a. New to knitting and this is super easy...except I too read the needle size wrong....oh well. It's still going to be cute.

  15. I can not seem to get the tail right, it gets uneven and driving me mad! How on earth can yours be that wonderfully even? Mine looks like half a triangle.. Straight on one side and a staircase on the other! Could anyone please share the sweet knowledge on how to knit a triangle.. I seem unable to wrap my mind around "every other". Thank you!

    1. basically the "every other side" means to add your increase on alternating sides, so if you increase on the front, the next increase should be on the back. Are you doing a bar increase?

    2. You have to increase stitches at both ends

    3. I had the same issue. I started over and have been adding 1 stitch at the beginning of every row and it seems to be coming out correctly.
