Security Blanket – Mr. Fox

Hello. I know that I’m quite unproductive lately but I promise I’ll get better after next week. Knitter’s word! 😉

Today I’ve finally finished a new security blanket – Mr. Fox. After I was done with it, it reminded me of something but I couldn’t remember what. I know it has to be something from a cartoon. I asked my beloved man about it and he agreed with me. Sadly, he couldn’t remember either. Maybe you can give me a hint if you do.

I also made a pattern for it.

PATTERN:

The base:

I started it making as in this helpful tutorial by Just Do and here.

I made 16 rounds.

In first 10 rounds I used orange yarn.

In next 6 I used white (2 rounds), brown (2 rounds), and black (2 rounds.)

The last 2 rounds (orange):

R1: sc 10, hdc in next 4, dc in next 4, tr in next 4, dbtr in next 4, ch 3, dbtr in next 4, tr in next 4, dc in next 4, hdc in next 4, sc 9. –> rep 4 times.

R2: hdc all the time except in the corners; corners: 2 hdc, dc, ch, dc, 2 hdc.

Slip stitch to the next stitch, fasten off, hide loose ends.

Head:

Start with orange:

MR, sc6 in the ring

R1: 2sc in each sts

R2: 2sc, sc –> rep 6 times (12)

R3: 2sc, sc2 –> rep 6 times (18)

R4: 2sc, sc3 –> rep 6 times (24)

R5: 2 sc, sc4 –> rep 6 times (30)

R6: 2sc, sc5 –> rep 6 times (36)

Change to white:

R7-R9: sc in each sts (36)

Change back to orange:

R10-R12: sc in each sts (36)

R13: dec, sc4 –> rep 6 times (30)

R14: dec, sc3 –> rep 6 times (24)

R15: dec, sc2 –> rep 6 times (18)

R16: dec, sc –> rep 6 times (12)

R17: dec  –> rep 6 times (6)

Slip stitch to the next stitch. Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sowing it to the base.

Ears (make 2):

Start with brown:

MR, 4sc in a MR

R1: 2sc in each (8)

Change color to orange:

R2: 2sc, sc –> rep 4 times (12)

R3: 2sc, sc2 –> rep 4 times (16)

R4: 2 sc, sc3 –> rep 4 times (20)

Slip stitch to the next stitch, fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing it to the head.

Nose:

Start with black:

MR, sc 4 in MR

R1: 2sc –> rep 4 times (8)

Change to orange:

R2: 2sc, sc –> rep 4 times (12)

R3-R4: sc around (12)

R5: 2sc, sc2 –> rep 4 times (16)

R6: sc around (16)

Slip stitch to the next stitch, fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing it to the head.

Eyes (make 2):

Use white color.

MR, sc 4 in MR

R1: 2sc –> rep 4 times (8)

R2: 2sc, sc –> rep 4 times (12)

Slip stitch to the next stitch, fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing it to the head.

You can embroider it or just sew a black pearl to each eye.

Sew everything together.

Of course, I’ve made more pictures of my Mr. Fox. You might ask why Mr., I don’t know, I just feel that he is a man.
