Miss Fanny is a fabulous fox! She is the latest in our pocket pal series, and quite possibly my favorite so far. Like our other Pocket Pals, she has a tummy pocket that can hold treasures or secrets in a little notebook. She can be easily knit in a variety of sizes by varying your yarn weight and adjusting your needle size accordingly. For all you sock knitters out there, the mini fox is a perfect and adorable way to use up leftover sock yarn in your stash. This pattern features short rows and double knitting. It includes charts as well as links to photo tutorials on the internet. While these can be challenging techniques for a beginning knitter, we think a toy is the perfect, low pressure place to try them out. (The pattern also includes a printed ruler. To be sure it's accurate, print this pattern at FULL size.)
