FOX TAIL PATTERN (A Tail for Your Fox Bottom)

The fox critter hats are ever so popular.  I really do think they’re the cutest things!  My favorite pattern to use is by Theresa Grant.  You can find it here.

But, I like things in sets.  If there’s a top, there must be a bottom, right?  So, I decided to add some shorts from my favorite go-to pattern by  Veronica’s crochet.  You can find that pattern here.

However, every good fox needs and even better tail.  I looked and looked and looked for one and was unsuccessful.  So, what do you know, I made up my own.

2 Colors of Yarn (I used Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn in Burnt Pumpkin and White)
