Knit Fox Scarf Pattern

October 18, 2020

Knit Fox Scarf Pattern- a cute woodland scarf in kids and adult sizes!

Knit Fox Scarf Pattern

This pattern was re-worked from one I found at Craft Foxes.

This fox scarf is knit using a simple stockinette stitch. The tail and face are created using a series of increase and decrease stitches. The ears are knit separately and then sewn on.
