Fox Hat Knitting Pattern
"My fox hat was one the first knitting patterns I ever designed. It's an adult size knitted in super chunky yarn, and quick to knit. This is easy to intermediate level. You can use any super chunky yarn achieving the tension of 8 stitches x 11 rows = 4in x 4in (10cm x 10cm) using US 13 (9mm) needles. Please make a tension square in the contrast colour before first, as knitting in the incorrect tension will change the size. My friend once made this hat without swatching and it was so big she used it as a basket! "
NotesFor this had I've listed colours to make an orange fox hat, but you can use any colour combinations you want. Maybe a black and white cat or a grey and white wolf, or anything you like really.
Knitting Needle Size13 or 9 mm
Yarn Weight(6) Super Bulky/Super Chunky (4-11 stitches for 4 inches)
- Main Colour - Burnt Orange - 2x 100g balls
- Contrast Colour - Cream - 1x 100g ball
- 9mm (US 13) knitting needles. I've always worked this hat straight and seamed it however it can also be worked in the round on DPNs or circular needles by changing the P rows to even rounds. The magic loop method would be needed when decreasing the crown.
