* I used Red Heart Super Saver Yarn and a size K hook.
Rw 1) With orange: Ch 70, dc in 3rd ch from hook and back down chain.

Rw 2-5) Turn, Ch 2, dc across.

*Note* Your work up until this point should be neat and even looking like a really long rectangle. (Meaning that you should make sure your work isn’t accidentally growing or shrinking along the way from adding or forgetting stitches at the ends and beginnings of the rows where it can get tricky deciding where to put the stitch.) If it is, simply add a stitch or decrease a time or two and try to even it up without having to pull it all apart. It should be pretty easy to work with in this way. The work should be even unless the row is stating that you are increasing or decreasing at the time.

Rw 6-9) Decrease rows. Turn, (dc in the first 4 st, decrease once), across. At the end of the row simply dc in the last couple of stitches you have left. Turn and repeat for rows 7, 8, and 9. This should shrink the project a little bit.

Rw 10-11) Turn, dc across.

At the end of Rw 11, fasten off leaving a tail long enough to fold the row in on itself and sew it together. I usually do this with the right sides together so that I can sew at an angle near the top of the hat to hide the pointed-look that would otherwise be at the top/back of the hat.

sew up hood

*Note* The hood will probably not be long enough on either side right now; not long enough to go over your shelter your face or to cover your neck. That’s okay.

Now rejoin your yarn with a sl st on the front of the hood so that you can work back and forth in the opposite direction from where you were going to begin with until the hood is as long as you desire. I do it this way so that the back of the hood is finished first and I can keep putting it on my head to more accurately judge if the hood is the length I want rather than guessing if it will be long enough after I sew the back together. We’ll work on the neck and then the scarf part after you are finished here.

turn right side out neck rows

Begin Neck:

Rw 1) At the end of the last row of your hood, pivot the hood so that you’ll be working back and forth across the bottom/neck area of the hood. You’ll be treating each dc row as if you’re putting 2 dc in each row. So ch 2, dc, dc, decrease, (dc, dc, dc, dec) across.

Rw 2) Ch 2, turn, dc, dc, decrease, (dc, dc, dc, dec) across.

Rw 3-4) Ch 2, turn, dc across.
Begin Scarf:

At the end of Rw 4, ch 63. Dc in 3rd ch from hook and back up the chain until you reach the edge of the hook. Join the top of your row with a sl st to the hood. Sl st a time or two along the hood until you are even with creating a second dc row back down the scarf. Then dc back down the scarf. Once you’re back to the end, ch 2, turn and dc back up the chain to the hood one last time. Sl st the top of your row to the hood. Fasten off and weave in ends. You should have one side of your scarf that is three dc rows tall.

create scarf chain

For the second side of the scarf, join yarn with a sl st oposite the side of the hood where you made the first side of the scarf. Ch 63 and repeat the motions above so that you have a mirroring side that is 3 dc rows tall.
Border:

If you’d like a border, simply join your yarn of a desired color with a sl st anywhere around the hood, ch 1, sc in same spot, and sc around the hood. When you come to a corner add an extra sc or two in the corner stitch so that the border doesn’t cause the shape to warp.

 

 

Fox Ears:

(Make two.)

Back of ear:

Row 1: With orange, ch 5, sc in 2nd ch from hook, dc, sc, sl st in the last ch. Turn. (4 st.)

Row 2: Sc in 1st 3 st, 2 sc in the last st. Turn. (5 sc.)

Row 3: Sc in 1st 4 st, 2 sc in the last st. Turn. (6 sc.)

Row 4: Sc in 1st 5 st, 2 sc in the last st. Turn. (7 sc.)

Row 5: Sc in 1st 6 st, 2 sc in the last st. Turn. (8 sc.)

Row 6: Sc in 1st 7 st, 2 sc in the last st. Turn. (9 sc.)

Row 7: Sc in 1st 8 st, 2 sc in the last st. Turn. (10 sc.)

Row 8: Sc in the 1st 9 st, 2 sc in the last st. Turn. (11 sc.)

Row 9: Sc in the 1st 10 st, 2 sc in the last st. Turn. (12 sc.)

Row 10: Sc in the 1st 11 st, 2 sc in the last st. Turn (13 sc.)

Row 11: Sc in the 1st 12 st, 2 sc in the last st. (14 sc.) Fasten off and weave in ends.

Front of ear:

Row 1: With white, ch 5, sc in 2nd ch from hook, dc, sc, sl st in the last ch. Turn. (4 st.)

Row 2: Sc in 1st 3 st, 2 sc in the last st. Turn. (5 sc.)

Row 3: Sc in 1st 4 st, 2 sc in the last st. Turn. (6 sc.)

Row 4: Sc in 1st 5 st, 2 sc in the last st. Turn. (7 sc.)

Row 5: Sc in 1st 6 st, 2 sc in the last st. Turn. (8 sc.)

Row 6: Sc in 1st 7 st, 2 sc in the last st. Turn. (9 sc.)

Row 7: Sc in 1st 8 st, 2 sc in the last st. Turn. (10 sc.)

Row 8: Sc in the 1st 9 st, 2 sc in the last st. (11 sc.) Fasten off and weave in ends.

Sew front of ear to back of ear using black yarn. (I like using the furry/fluffy type of yarn for this.)

Bottom of ear:

Rnd 1: Ch 8. Sc in 2nd ch from hook and across stopping before last ch. 3 sc in last chain and pivot chain so that you are now working in opposite direction back down the chain. Sc in next ch and down ch stopping before last ch. 2 sc in last ch, and join with a sl st to the very first sc. You should now have an oval shape.

Rnd 2: Ch 1, sc in same st and around the oval, and add one extra sc at each far end of the oval to prevent the shape from bowing. So in total you will have two extra sc in the entire round of sc. Jn with a sl st in the first sc. Fasten off leaving tail long enough to sew bottom of hear to the top of the ear.

Sew the bottom to the top of the ear, stuffing as you go. Then sew the ears to the hood.
