Over the holidays in Canada I was busy making all sorts of things for my nieces and nephews. Not the greatest photo, but this was a fuzzy "fox" hat for my niece, Elizabeth. The insides of the ears are also knitted in brown yarn.
There is a kind of wool which is like fake fur. When you knit it, it's like a plush toy after - all stretchy and soft. It's called "eyelash yarn" as the string has little tassels of yarn all along it. I also used some plain brown yarn beside the fur string as I knitted, which you can't see at all - but made the final product warmer and stronger.
The ears look more like bear ears, but still - I think it really suits her style!
