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!
