When friends went on vacation to Africa, they Emailed me beautiful photos of lions, which were the inspiration for my Child's Snazzy Sweater and Toy Lion set (also please see my Lion Dog Sweater!) The child's sweater is an easy knit for the Advanced Beginner or Intermediate knitter. The striped pattern is given texture by the easy-to-make bobbles. I love bobbles but when made in the usual way, I think they can be a lot of work. I prefer an easier method of making bobbles, which is used in this design. The lion is wearing a matching sweater and boasts a full and colorful mane. He's knit flat, then seamed in the back. He's an easy and fast knit. If you think your child, grandchild or any child you know would be happy to wear a snazzy sweater and cuddle a soft lion with a matching sweater, I hope you'll consider my design. I had a lot of fun designing and knitting up the set and I think you will enjoy working on the project. As with all my designs, I'm available to assist if you have any questions. Just ask and I'll be happy to help! I want you to have a fun knitting experience and end up with a fabulous result.

Follow my blog at: I am certified as a Level 1 Master Hand Knitter by The Knitting Guild Association. My grandmother Lena taught me to knit when I was 4 years old and told me that a lifetime of knitting pleasure was her legacy to me. I love to design and knit and enter my work in competitions. I've won numerous awards and ribbons over the years and that's a lot of fun, but the greatest pleasure is the actual creative process. I specialize in Beginner and Intermediate level designs that teach new skills and promote excitement for the art that is Knitting. I think new knitters should have the opportunity to work with a well-written design that reinforces their current skills, teaches them new skills and gets a "WOW, you made that?!!?" response when showing off their completed project.
