Pattern Description:

This is a pattern for a GIANT amigurumi lion. To show the size, the second picture shows Stewart with a gallon of milk.

Stewart is a friendly lion who loves to stalk through the tall grass of the African Savannah. Despite is gigantic size, he is much less ferocious than his lion counterparts.

This pattern is written in the English language using American terms. The pattern follows the Craft Yarn Council of America's standards and guidelines for crochet patterns.

Included are pictures and detailed instructions of the embroidery and assembly.

The pattern is written so that you use two strands of worsted weight yarn, however you can make a smaller (still huge!) lion by using one strand of worsted weight yarn and a smaller hook size.
