I have a pretty long commute on my way into the office, and as a result I usually have the chance to see some great wildlife. Most of my drive is through state forest preserve land, so it is not uncommon to see deer, coyotes and huge flocks of geese. But today, sitting in the middle of the road, was a fox. He was just sitting there. At first I thought he was hurt, but after stopping, I realized he was just warming himself on the pavement and staring into the sunshine. I didn’t rush him, letting him sit for a bit. Of course, I held up traffic behind me, but he eventually got up and sauntered into the forest preserve happy as a clam. While he was sitting there, I just admired the color of his fluffy coat and the beautiful markings throughout. Being a crafter, I immediately thought of all the great fox themed designs I have seen over time. So, as soon as I got in I had to collect our very best fox knitting patterns and free fox crochet patterns for you. You are sure to find something here to make for yourself or for someone special who happens to love this bushy-tailed little creature.
