Lily has translated Xandy Peter’s gorgeous Fox Paws pattern into crochet. Worked in fine yarn this can be dazzling in it’s intricacy. Worked in chunky yarn it makes a dramatic statement. In this class crocheters will learn how to work the design, as well as how to apply it to pattern adaptation so you can have fox paws running all over your crochet!
