This listing is for a pdf pattern for a fox backpack or bag. This bag is part of our Freddie Fox Collection, inspired by our knitted toy pattern. This bag looks impressive but is actually really quick and straightforward to knit and is simply felted in your washing machine - an amazing transformation process, which yields remarkably great results each time. Full, detailed instructions are included.



This knitting pattern gives instructions for one size of fox backpack or bag. It is knitted in a chunky felting yarn (we recommend DROPS Eskimo and have tested this yarn extensively in this pattern to allow for the correct amount of shrinkage) on 8mm needles. The bag measures approximately 23.5cm high by 22cm wide.



Knitting the fox bag takes approx. 4 x 50g balls of chunky felting yarn in orange (200m), plus 20g of white (20m) and 5g black (5m) for the chest and features. You will also need 8mm needles and a magnetic clasp. You may also want to choose some fabric to line your bag.



This is not just a knitting pattern, it is a 22 page project book! It contains full instructions on how to knit the fox bag, and felt it in your washing machine successfully. It also contains descriptions of how to follow the directions and sections of techniques used with pictures and step by step instructions. Great for novice knitters, or if you just need a bit of extra help. But it still works for experienced knitters!
