Below is the quick and simple pattern for the Sew Sew Baby Fox Scarf
This pattern can be used for ages 3yrs to pre-teens.
PLEASE NOTE : This pattern uses UK Terminology.
Skill Level: Easy/Intermediate
16 sts and 11 rows in tr equals 10cm square however providing you work evenly gauge is not vital for this project and the scarf works equally as well in different weight yarns.
ch – Chain (…) Repeat what is between the brackets
dc – Double Crochet tr – Treble Crochet
htr – Half Treble Crochet sk – Skip Stitch
sl st – Slip Stitch tr2tog – Decrease by crocheting two stitches together
sp1 – Spike Stitch 1 sp2 – Spike Stitch 2 (see pattern notes)
st – Stitch [….] Total number of stitches at the end of that row
The number in brackets at the end of a row e.g.  is the number of stitches you should have once that row or given number of rows have been completed.
If you wish to use a smaller or larger hook or a different weight yarn then just be aware that the sizing will be different once completed. Providing you use the same weight yarn and hook throughout then you can work with whatever you feel most comfortable.
The notes in bold throughout this pattern are for guidance only and are designed to assist you as you work.
Treble Crochet Spike Stitch – There is a great tutorial/step by step guide to this at http://www.craftsy.com/blog/2013/10/crochet-spike-stitch-tutorial/ Row 17 of the pattern requires three different length of spike stitches, acquaint yourself with the different lengths so that you can work Row 14. You will note I work the Spike Stitches as 1tr around the next stitch (SP1) and then 1tr around the stitch of the row below (SP2) and repeat this across to give the tail effect. You can, of course, work any variety of spike stitch lengths on this row to achieve your desired look. Ch2 will count as 1 stitch throughout the scarf section only.
Begin with Cream and ch 3 (NB. your ch2 will count as stitches for the scarf section)
Row 1: 2tr in the 2nd ch from hook 
Row 2: Turn, ch2, 2tr in the same space, 2tr in the next st, 1tr in the top of the ch3 from the row below 
Row 3: Turn, ch2, 2tr in the same space, 1tr in each st across, 1tr in the top of the ch3 from the row below 
Rows 4-13: Repeat Row 3 
Change to Spice, the next row is your Spike Stitch row as per the photo below
Row 14: Turn, ch2, 2tr in same space, *SP1, SP2* repeat * to * 11 more times, SP1, 1tr in next st, 1tr in top of ch2 from previous row 
Row 15: Turn, ch2, 1tr in same space, 1tr in each st across 
Rows 16 onwards: Repeat Row 15 until you reach your desired length (including the tail section in your measurements), recommended lengths as follows
3 – 5 years 32”
5 – 7 years 40”
8 – 10 years 46”

When you have reached your desired length, work the following decreasing rows:

Rows 10 and 11: Turn, ch2, 1tr in each st across 
Fasten off, leave long tail for sewing.
To assemble the ears, fold in half, (one half is shorter than the other – this is intentional to give a curve shape to the ears) stitch two halves together ensuring the bottom rows are level) leaving the bottom open. Turn right side out. Using black yarn make a few small stitches across the top of the ear (on the right side so you can see the stitches) this is to shape the point of the ear but also give a colour contrast. Repeat for both ears.
To form the face of the fox on the scarf, sew the Contrast Head Piece into place along row 22 of the scarf. Sew the snout of the scarf onto the top of the contrast head piece being careful to ensure that the black nose is not attached and sticks out beyond the end of the contrast head piece.
Attach the eyes in position, using the photo at the top of this post for guidance on positioning.
Attach the ears to the main scarf. I recommend pinning in place to ensure you are happy with their placement before you begin sewing.
Rejoin Spice to the main scarf immediately at the join of the cream contrast head piece and row 22 of the main scarf. You will now use your row ends as stitches. How loose or tight you work will determine if you require one or two stitches in each row end around the edge. As you work, ensure you check you are not creating too many or too few stitches. Too many will result in a rippled edge, too few will stretch your scarf around the edges. I tend to find 2dc into one row end and 1dc into the next repeated works well to give a flat edge which does not gather or stretch the scarf. If your scarf is not staying flat, just undo and retry a different number of stitches.
NB. To ensure the rightside of your stitches are showing on the right side of the scarf edge you must ensure that your scarf is right side up when working the edging.
Row 1: *Work 1dc into the first row end, 2dc into the next row end and repeat until you reach the Cream tail section. Fasten off Spice and rejoin Cream, work the same around the tail section and then fasten off Cream and rejoin Spice to work along the other edge. Fasten off when you reach the meeting point of row 22 of the scarf and the Cream contrast head piece. Sew in your ends.
