For my Nephew James's Naming day recently I made him a little crochet lion! My sister Jen actually asked if I might make a lion quite a while ago, so I knew she might just like this one...

I completely failed to keep a note of the yarn I used, but I'm pretty sure its Sirdar Snuggly Baby DK. I used some cotton yarn for the face, stuffed with safety toy stuffing. Of course I embroidered the face on rather than using safety eyes as it was for a baby gift. I used my usual 3.5 hook.
A side pose...
Here's his mane in all its glory!
Look at that tail! I think this is my favourite tail of all the tails I have made yet. It's a little pom pom!
Squishy round tum!
Luvly Gurumi patterns simply are genius, his mane is a little hood and comes off. You lift it over his ears and fasten with a strap and button under his chin, cutest thing ever!
Ta da! Final lion in full.
Have you made any Luvly Gurumi patterns? Have you found anything cuter?
