Crochet Adult Fox Headband

My hubs loves to remind me that I've made hundreds of items, but nothing for him yet. On Halloween I decided to remedy that, and make him a hound hat to go with my fox headband. He was a good sport and agreed to wear it :P You'll find the info for the hound hat at the end, but for now, the fox headband...

This pattern is the property of Brooke Rabideau at BluebabyboutiqueDesignsbyBBB, or brabideau on Ravelry  Feel free to sell any items made, but please link back to me if you share :)
