woodland-critters-knit-crochet-patternsWhat does the fox say? I think the fox says…it’s time to knit and crochet some woodland patterns! Going along with the rustic theme this year, the holidays are approaching and I’ve been seeing many woodland creature ornaments, decor, and even clothing featuring cute little critters. Sure enough, these woodland creatures have scampered into the yarn world and I couldn’t be happier with the patterns I’ve been finding. Be prepared to start saving, pinning, and collecting these patterns below.

    Fox in the Snow Mittens are adorable…I love the thumb tail! And I have a friend whose last name is Fox. I’ve never knitted in this style, but this might lure me over to the Fair Isle side. The mittens should fit one of the Foxes in their family, but no one better say, “I want a pair too!”
