The kind old Tomten shares his bowl of porridge with a hungry fox on a cold winter night. Inspired by Astrid Lindgren's classic story of The Tomtem and the Fox, this charming duo would be much loved by any Tomten lover or a delightful way to introduce him. This pattern involves knitting in the round with double pointed needles, working the Tomten's hat and the fox's tail into a curve with short rows and sewing up the fox's hat with a kitchener stitch. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knitting in the round Double pointed needles

Recommended with this pattern

  • Worsted weight yarn in gray, red, white and orange (uses only a very tiny bit of each color, a great way to use up those bits and pieces)
  • Set of 4 US size 7 (4.5mm) double pointed needles
  • Craft glue

Hi! I am so glad you found my cosy little place. My name is Julie, I am 33 years old and single mama to three spirited little girls. I love to create just about anything, but my passions are knitting and Waldorf doll making. Check out my Etsy shop to see my dolls! I am happily building a cosy life with my little family in the foothills of North Carolina, one stitch at a time. Handmade is a way of life for me and I love to share it with others. I hope you find something here that will bring a little bit of cosy into your life.
