When I decided to make Henry a fox hat I looked around and found some free earflap hat patterns, but nothing specifically for a fox. I just worked on the hat part and when I came to the face and ears, I decided to make up a crochet pattern. I’m really happy with how the ears turned out, so I thought I’d share the pattern. I am no crochet expert, so hopefully you can understand it!
