I was inspired to make this scarf by Cat Morley, but I also loved a Fleece Fox Scoodie by Katie O., another crafter on the same site.
Soo, I did the next best thing...and knit hacked Cat's pattern with Katie's design, just in time for Halloween!

Cat wrote a Fantastic pattern, and I will make several Kitty versions, but following along with her pattern...here are the mods I used to make the Fox:

I used RedHeart in Carrot, White and Black

And these are the parts:
The Scarf-
62 inches long.should go 66 inches next time.

Two sides for the Hood -
Increased Co to 50 stitches and knit for 50 rows making the Bo at 35 stitches for a deeper hood.

I used a crochet hook and used a chain stitch to seam this together, glad I did, the hood was off center by an inch, made it easy to take apart to recenter it.
I seamed the hood from the inside starting at the bottom, and stopped 1 inch from the top curling edge, then seamed that last inch from the top so that when it naturally curls you dont see a seam.

Two Pockets -( I am adding paw prints in duplicate stitch before I start the sewing to assemble this beauty) :-)

Four Ears - 2 outer and 2 inner.
Pattern same for all four ears.
CO 18 sts, knit 3 rows, decrease one stitch one each end every 4th row until 2 stitches remain, BO- makes large ears.
For smaller ears CO 16 sts, knit 2 rows, decrease one stitch on each end every third row until 2 stitches remain, BO.

All done! Loving it! :-)

Wow, that is so cute and cozy looking! Good for you! I may snag the ears pattern to add some ears to a hat one of these days, if that'd be ok.
