Lion - Crochet Pattern

from patterns by steph

Lion - Crochet Pattern

Lion - Crochet Pattern

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • magic ring
  • chain
  • single crochet
  • increase and (invisible) decrease
  • slip stitch
  • changing yarn-color (instructions included)
  • surface crochet (for the optional hems and for the mane) (instructions included)
  • crocheting in the round (rounds are not joined!)
  • crocheting back and forth in rows

Pattern Description:

No sharp teeth or long claws in sight here. This Lion only wants one thing: to cuddle and snuggle.
He also promises to not hunt down other cuddly toys in his territory. :)

So, it's pretty safe to crochet him. ;)


Edit: With my daughter's permission I changed the Lion's face a little bit and gave him a crocheted blue nose. :)
