This super-foxy hat is a variation on the pink PussyHat Project that you can make in pink, orange, grey, or any main color that grabs you. With a lighter intarsia face and ears and a black nose, occasional stranded colorwork, and clever embroidered eyes, this unique hat will keep your knitting hands interested and then your head warm and foxy at protests, as part of a costume, or for every chilly day. The pattern includes an option to knit the in-the-round or flat-and seamed.
Difficulty: Intermediate (using intarsia in-the-round, stranded colorwork, Bulgarian cast-on, and kitchener grafting). (Up to 2 glasses of wine: you do have to pay some attention.)
Materials: 124-142 yds. (113-130m) worsted weight yarn, depending on gauge: 94-102 yds. (86-93m) main color (MC), 8-25 yds. (7-23m) contrasting (light) color (CC), and 1-13 yds. (1-12m) black or brown. Buy a bit extra in case.
Tools: tapestry needle to weave in ends; scissors; and a tape measure.
