After writing about the fingerless gloves pattern I have just finished (it has gone off to be checked by my amazing friend Claire who has eagle eyes and should be ready shortly), which are for grownup hands, I thought I should balance it up by thinking about keeping little hands cosy in this cold weather.
There seem to be lots of foxes around at the minute – not sure why, but who cares, I love them! The inspiration for this crochet fox mitten pattern originally came from my son’s jumper! Sadly it no longer fits him but I have kept it as I love the shape of the little fox faces!
The crochet fox mitten pattern is from the Ruby & Custard crochet book (a brilliant Christmas gift if you are stuck for ideas – had to get a quick plug for it in somewhere!) They are quick to make with DK yarn and you don’t even have to make them into foxes – you could make them plain, stripey or even turn them into another animal! A really versatile crochet pattern!
I have been really busy recently crocheting Christmas presents, writing crochet patterns and in very exciting news I have been working on a pattern for an issue of Inside Crochet magazine! Here is a sneak preview…
The pattern is called ‘Counting Sheep’ and it is going to be a blanket; watch this space for more information!
Have a lovely weekend,
