The Tomten and the Fox

The kind old Tomten shares his bowl of porridge with a hungry fox on a cold winter night.
Inspired by Astrid Lindgren’s classic story of The Tomtem and the Fox, this charming duo would be much loved by any Tomten lover or a delightful way to introduce him.
This pattern involves knitting in the round with double pointed needles, working the Tomten’s hat and the fox’s tail into a curve with short rows and sewing up the fox’s hat with a kitchener stitch.

•Worsted weight yarn in gray, red, white and orange (uses only a very tiny bit of each color, a great way to use up those bits and pieces)
•Set of 4 US size 7 (4.5mm) double pointed needles
•Craft glue
•1 ‘dad’ size wooden peg doll (2 3/8”) and 1 ‘boy’ size wooden peg doll 1 11/16”) (resources at bottom of pattern)
•Unfinished wooden dollhouse bowl, 1.5” (optional)
