Pattern Details

Fox paws is a rectangular wrap with a distinctive stripe motif that looks like little interlocking fox feet. Using only increases and decreases, stripes are shaped into extreme waves using the same technique as the Petal Cowl pattern but with more unusual shapes. It can be worked in 2 or more colors without any stranded or intarsia techniques so there are no strange loops on the wrong side and the wrap is very stretchy and drapey. The sample shown and described in the pattern is worked in 5 colors which rotate every repeat to create a varied appearance but you can use almost any stripe pattern that you desire. I've also created a video showing how to weave in the yarn ends from all the stripes as you go, making the finishing almost nonexistent. This video is linked in the pattern.
