Amigurumi Lion Free Crochet Pattern

Amigurumi related to each other, we continue to bring you beautiful shares. In this article, amigurumi lion free pattern is waiting for you.

YOU WILL NEED

• Yarn of your choice in colors: mustard yellow, terracotta red and beige for crocheting and sewing pieces together;

• Embroidery thread in egg yolk color for making ears, stitching fingers and decorating the mane; . Embroidery floss and/or scraps of yarn in black, lingonberry, honey and caramel colors for decorating the face; . Crochet hook suitable for the yarn of your choice; . Toy stuffing; . Embroidery and tapestry needles, pins, stitch marker. It’s quite traditional to leave a long yarn tail for sewing at the end of making every part of the toy. But yours truly is not good at sewing at all, and therefore prefers to divide the yarn into strands and use them along with a thin sewing needle, so the stitches look more neat. Please do what’s more comfortable for you. All the pieces are mainly worked in a spiral.

ASSEMBLY AND FINISHING TOUCHES

• Stuff the body, pin it to the back of the head (note that the wider part of the mane should be in the bottom).

• Bend and shape the back legs, play around with them, testing out different positions on the body. Some asymmetries will make the toy look more interes-ting, but make sure that it’s stable and it doesn’t roll over onto one side. Having decided on the best option, sew the de-tails together.

• Sew the front legs and the tail onto the body.

• Embroider 3 fingers on each paw.

• Sew the ears onto the mane.

• Using yarn scraps in caramel color, make a couple of stitches in the middle of each ear.

• Sew the muzzle to the head, embroider the nose and the eyes in black.

• Make a few stitches in different colors here and there on the nose and on the body using the original lion illustration @3antsinarow as a visual aid. Your pet is ready to be cuddled!
