Knit a trendy and adorable fox hooded cowl for the whole family! Worked seamlessly in one piece with aran or bulky yarn, it knits up in no time. Fitted with fun drawstrings to keep it snug, Sly Fox is the perfect way to wrap up on cold days and look cute as a button!

Sly Fox Cowl is worked in one piece from the bottom up. Beginning with the cowl knit in the round, the hood is then worked in rows, edged with a double knit drawstring casing. Shadow wraps short row technique developed by Alice Yu is used for shaping the stockinette hood, while the Garter stitch crown is shaped with wrap-and-turn short rows. However, you may substitute your preferred short-row method. The top of the hood is joined with 3-needle bind off to form ears.
