The Foxglove is a flower with rich folklore in its past – some believed that picking foxgloves is offensive to fairy folk, possibly to prevent children from eating the poisonous plant. Other traditions include foxes wearing the flowers as gloves so they wouldn't be caught raiding the chicken coop, and even an ancient musical instrument known as the fox's glew which has a similar shape to the Foxglove flowers. With both positive symbolism that includes pride, ambition and creativity, and negative associations with incinserity, this is a flower rich in meaning and its crochet counterpart will bloom beautifully from season to season.
