Amigurumi Crocheted Lion

It's been so crazy this month I just realized I haven't posted the lion that I made for my nephew yet.  He absolutely LOVES it!  It took a little longer than most of the crocheted animals I've done since it's quite a bit bigger, but it was worth the effort.

If you'd like to make one of your own you can find the pattern on the Naturally Caron yarn website here.  The pattern calls for Naturally Caron Country yarn.  I substituted Red Heart Super Saver yarn in Gold for the head and body, Chocolate for the mane, nose and the end of the tail, and then small amounts of white and black for the eyes.  I did the mane and the tail a little different than the pattern calls for, but I'm pleased with the results.

If you'd like to have one made for you please email me.  I welcome custom orders.
