An original crochet amigurumi Lion and Lioness pattern by June Gilbank. Make an Aslan of your own!
Yarn: worsted weight yarn in yellow, white (for the chin), and brown (for the mane and tail tassel). I used a very pale brown for my sample lion; you can use any shade from yellow through to dark brown (lions' manes darken with age, so it'll still look realistic in any shade).
Hook: US E / 3.5mm
Size: approx 8.5″ long and 6" tall
Details: Pattern is 13 pages long and includes 30 step-by-step photographs and explanations so you can crochet a perfect lion and lioness of your own. Don't worry about hooking hundreds of strands of yarn for the mane; it's actually all crocheted! Three full pages of instructions for the mane walk you through every step of the special technique.
Eye size: 9mm
