Feelin’ Foxy Scarf (The Fox)

This version of “Feelin’ Foxy Scarf” is designed to be quick and dirty.  Unlike the wolf, the fox was made for people who don’t have all week or month to be knitting a damn scarf!  So pick up your needles and get crackin’!

Inspired, translated, and tweaked from a lovely pattern created by a woman somewhere in Europe (sorry, I could not tell you where!), this foxy scarf is a fun accessory to add a little sass to any day.  You can find the original pattern here.  Follow along to furnish your own furry, foxy friend! (Pardon the alliteration!)
