Wild beast a-roaming

My latest crochet request has been for a lion and after the success of the lovely amigurumi panda which I made with a free pattern on the Lion Brand website I decided to try another of their free patterns.

The pattern for this little lion used fuzzy yarn for the mane which would probably have looked great, but after a less than enjoyable experience of using fuzzy yarn I opted for latch hooking on a mane with normal non-fuzzy yarn.

I'm not as pleased with this little guy as I was with the panda (who is now happily living in Texas and has his own personal bamboo plant) though he is still pretty cute. He was pretty simple to make up and I'm sure his new owner will love him very much.

Oh I think he is cute - your idea to latch hook the mane is great. Little panda is doing well even in our 90 degree weather. He sits on my kitchen ledge right next to his bamboo plant!! Everyone comments on this cute little guy!

He's adorable! And I like how the mane turned out. So cute!
