Two original crochet amigurumi patterns (Lion and Lioness and Lion Cub) by June Gilbank. Buy both lion patterns together to create a lion family - or even a whole pride of lions - and SAVE!
Lion & Lioness: 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).
Lion Cub: worsted weight yarn in yellow
Hook: US E / 3.5mm
Details (Adult): 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.
Adult: approx 8.5" long and 6" tall
Baby: approx 5" (13cm) long
Eye size: 9mm
