Hello my crafty friends, I can’t believe it’s already October – the most inspiring time of the year! Surrounded by the spectacular fall foliage in southern Ontario, I can’t resist knitting, crocheting, sewing, and baking apple pies. When I think about fall, I think about beauty of nature and woodland animals…so I thought it would be great to make something foxy again.
Moxie & Roxy is not a new pattern, I designed this fox hat over 4 years ago and it is still one of the most loved characters in IraRott family. As I always care about our patterns, I decided that it’s time to write an update for our cute little foxes. When this pattern was originally released in 2013, it included 2 hat styles (furry & non-furry) as well as a tail pattern. The pattern had way too many details in my opinion, that’s why I created 3 separate versions of this design in 2017:
VERSION 1: Roxy The Forest Fox Hat Crochet Pattern. This hat base is made with hook 5.5 mm (I) from worsted weight yarn (4). I used Vanna’s Choice yarn by Lion Brand, which is one of my favorite yarns for making hats. Terracotta color is definitely my first choice, but Rust, Honey, and Tangerine Mix are fabulous as well! This version of the pattern was sent to our customers who purchased it prior to October 19 / 2017. Please keep the original pattern in case you want to use the furry hat base in the future. If you have not received an update, please contact us with more information about your purchase through the contact form on your site.
VERSION 2: Moxie The Furry Fox Hat Crochet Pattern. The base of this hat is made with hook 6.5 mm (K) and TWO strands of yarn held together –> 1 strand of worsted weight (4) + 1 strand of bulky furry yarn (5). Originally, I used Vanna’s Choice with Fun Fur yarns by Lion Brand in Terracotta colors. Unfortunately, the Terracotta Fun Fur has now been discontinued, but you can still find it on eBay, or maybe you have it in you stash. Scarlet Vanna’s Choice with Red Fun Fur create a nice color mix, or you can use any other combination of matching colors. You can also use Eyelash yarn by Ice yarns which is currently available in a variety of fabulous colors.
VERSION 3: Moxie & Roxy The Fox Tail. Great news, this part of the pattern is now FREE, so come over to get your copy! The pattern includes instructions for making a furry fox tail or non-furry fox tail in 3 different sizes. You can also make a removable tail that can easily be attached to your pants or onto a hat, how fun is that?!
