Peeking Fox…A new free pattern

 

 

I love foxes as much as I do Owls.  So I decided to make this Peeking Fox Basket/Planter Cover free crochet pattern and maybe to do a collection of them. They are fun and easy to make.
I love the way the fox is just peeking out in the pictures!! The planter is a great conversation piece as well as a great cover for a plastic planter.
It worked out perfectly adding the white as I went around.  Please enjoy this free pattern.
