An easy to follow, delightful pattern for an adorable lion! The lion can be made cheaply out of oddments of double knitting yarn. The lion's body, mane and head are knitted in one piece, so there's very little sewing to do to make up your lion; which is always a bonus! The lion is a perfect size to join Noah and all the animals on the Knitables ark! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY You will need to be able to knit, purl, cast on and off, increase and decrease, change colours and sew seams. All pieces are knitted flat on straight needles. The knitting pattern has clear row by row instructions and photographs to help you along the way. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Lion - Height approximately 13 cm (5.31 inches) / Width approximately 14 cm (5.51 inches)

Knitables is dedicated to my brave and inspirational mum-in-law Linda, who during her 13 year battle with cancer, raised thousands of pounds for charity by knitting scarves and toys. It was Linda who first encouraged me to design my own range of knitted toys, as she was constantly looking for new things to knit and was always so impressed with my designs and ideas.
