Little Fox Backpack

A friend asked me if I could make something on commission for her to give to a close friend’s toddler on his birthday, and this is what we ended up with. :smiley: I’ve never posted it before because I always intended to publish the pattern, but it has been YEARS, so I’m tired of waiting, because I think it’s super cute. :smiley:

:smiley: I got really lucky with that, because it’s a bit of some vintage yardage I had in my stash. I still have like 5 yards of it. lol It just fit this project so well, though!

Ah that’s adorable! Foxes are one of my favorite animals. I would love a fox backpack! I would also potentially try to make it if you did ever publish the pattern. :wink:

To be honest, I have it all written out. I was originally intending to try to write up instructions for a fully-knitted and a fabric/lined/strapped version, but I did not care enough. lol I think I might go in and finalize the lined version (the one I actually made) and put it on my website.

I like the mixed material you used (not just all knitting). and the stitch difference for cheeks and ears. I think it’s moss (but could be linen?).

Thank you! For a structured bag and a recipient I didn’t personally know, I wanted to make sure it wasn’t going to sag or stretch in weird ways, or let things like pencils through, or otherwise be used in a way I didn’t foresee, so a fabric lining and straps seemed like the obvious choice.

And, it’s moss stitch. :smiley:

Yes, for all it’s functionality knitting (or crochet) does allow little bits through. Lining was an extra step, but finished it so well!

Huzzah for moss stitch!!
