Fox Cape ::

I'm so pleased to finally have this pattern up for sale in PDF format. It's by far and away one of my favourite creations and something I wear loads.

Originally published in issue 48 of Inside Crochet, it's worked bottom up, mostly in treble stitch, with the colourwork sections in double crochet.
It's a simple and fun project, that will work up pretty quickly too. The trickiest part is the colourwork. I used the Fair Isle technique, carrying the yarns not in use at the back of the work, I really think this would produce much better results than tapestry crochet.

The yarn used in the sample is Katia Merino 100%, which is lovely double knit weight merino, available in a load of gorgeous colours.
When I was adding the pattern to ravelry yesterday I came across this amazing version by Candice Miller, who changed the foxes and replaced them with owls. I love this so so much!

I'm offering 50% off the pattern price until the end of the weekend meaning you can purchase for a bargain £1.75. Available here.
