This is a .pdf crochet pattern, written in standard American crochet terms, for Lopi the lion. Now we all can become lion tamers. With this easy pattern you can make a beautiful realistic looking lion.
With basic crochet skills you will be able to make this animal. The stitches used are sc's, de- and increases.
Size 6 inch/ 15 cm when sitting, made with worsted weight yarn.
THE CROCHET PATTERN CONTAINS An intro with useful info. List of materials, tools and accessories needed. Brand and colour numbers of the needed yarn. A clear and colour coded description of how to crochet and assemble the animal. Pictures and illustrations to help getting everything right. All my patterns are text edited for correct English and have been tested by an experienced crocheter before publishing.
SUPPLIES NEEDED For this lion you need worsted weight yarn and an E US/3.5 mm crochet hook. You need three colours of yarn, camel (1/3 of 100 yard skein), brown (1/3) and white (1/10). For the eyes I’ve used 8 mm animal eyes, and I needle felted a nose (a bit wider than the eyes), but any other kind works too. You will also need fibrefill, pellets for a bit of extra weight in the body (I use Hama beads) and a pipe cleaner for the tail is optional. Lopi colour numbers: 1400, 0053 and 0051.
PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Istex Lett lopi. I strongly recommend using a fuzzy yarn because it gives the best result.
GAUGE Gauge is unimportant for this pattern. If the pieces are crocheted tightly enough, they will not gape visibly when stuffed. You can make a little test swap to be sure.
