The intrepid fox is the pattern that seems to match that adorable fox. Also sold on Etsy as a kit $40.

I’d really rather us DK or bulkier yarn for this without it becoming huge.

stitchesandwords said: I love those socks, what pattern did you use?

Thanks! It’s my own pattern. I have shoddy notes on my ravelry page about it, but here you go anyway:

Magic CO 16 
Increase toe until there are 72 stitches (36 on each needle) 
Start 3x1 (3 knit, 1 purl) until heel (about 1 1/2 from your heel if you try it on.)

Short row heel: 12 stitches unworked for heel before increasing (the short rows) again. 
Start cabling (3kx1px3k) on the sides of sock every 10 rounds. For more instructions on how exactly I cabled, just send me another ask.
Continue knitting until there are 10 cables. Knit 5 more rounds.

Start calf increases—>increase on each side of the middle rib section on the back of the sock. 
Do this until there are 112 stitches on needles (or 17 knit columns on back of the sock.) Knit for another 1.5-2 inches (or 19 rounds according to my needles). 


Start cuff. K1 p1 front needle (front of sock) and knit 1 purl 1 for 32 sts into back of the sock. k2tog, purl 1, 8 times, then k3tog for a total of 102 sts. Knit 1 purl 1 for last 25 sts on sock. Continue working cuff in k1p1 to desired length (mine is 4.5”.)

I finished with a sewn bind off.
