Foxy Knitted Scarf: An Adventure

I came across this pin forever ago. It lurked in the back of my head for months and months. But I was afraid. I thought my skillz weren't evolved enough...I read different versions of the pattern and I was scared. Turns out, it was not my fault.





I took notes on my Ravelry page as I went. I did not, however, include all the "what the fuck?" moments I had.


**Basically, with the gray** 
CO 2sts
row one: increased (kfb, k, kfb) 
row two: k across
*do this until you have 22sts or its as wide as you want*

***switch to red***
row "three": K across 
row "four": slip the first st, then K across 
*keep going until its long enough* 

decrease (k2tog, k, k2tog) until its narrow as you want it to be. do whatever stitch you want for at least 4 inches, then increase again until you have 22/whatever sts. 

(The red I used for the body wasnt quite enough. I think at least 100g would be needed, maybe even 110g. I ended up using more of the gray. My fox has a long neck) 

Once it got to about the right length, I started decreases. I used k2tog, k, k2tog until it was the right size. I bound off, then crocheted a little back loop and stitched it down.

For the ears: (x2)

Co 2sts
Kfb, k across each row until 12 sts.
Bind off
Sew them on where ever.
I plan on adding buttons for eyes.

What every damned picture I saw looked like

What I Learned
  • I am easily frustrated when reading patterns. I need to work on my comprehension.
  • I am capable of "winging it"
  • I don't like the way wool tweed slides across my hand while knitting.
  • I don't really have to finish things in two days. I don't.
  • I like knitting triangles. KFBFTW.

June 2019 Indie Pickup | Eventide Rose Gold Bangle

It is Polish Pickup/Indie Pickup time again! As a "maker", it is my favorite time because I finally get to reveal what I have been plotting in the shadows! June's prompt is "Weather" and I chose a beautiful stormy sunset picture and a wonderfully minimalist setting. I can't wait to wax ecstatic about it!
