Using orange yarn and 4 double-point needles, begin to shape the foxes face. Stitch an inch at a time until the knit covers your pot lid.
Make the snout by using your double point needle, picking up 12 stitches on the first line of orange. You’ll have eight stitches either side now. You’ll knit a single row, then decrease a stitch each side until you have 3 stitches. When your length is around 10 cm, bind it off.
Using your double point needles again, pick up 10 stitches on the top. Now knit yourself 5 rows, taking care to diminish your line by a stitch each time until you’re left with a single stitch. Pull your yarn through to fasten it.
You are almost done. Bind the bottom by fixing the sides with ribbing. Embroider on the eyes and nose, fix on a piece for the snout and weave in the ends.
