This fun little lion has lots of character and a full-bodied mane that gives the shampoo models a run for their money. Knit almost entirely in the round with no seaming at all, he knits up quickly and requires little finishing. Details such as shaped foot and paw pads and a sassy little tail make this a fun and interesting project as well as a great gift for any kid or adult.

I've been into DIY since I was little, but these days my main craft is knitting. My mother taught me the basics when I was eleven, and after several years of neglect I picked it up again at university. When I can squeeze it around my day job, I love to come up with knitting patterns, you can check out what I've got in development over on my blog, www.studiomarlowe.com
