Landon the Lion (Twee Toys Collection)

Landon the Lion is an adorable stuffed animal amigurumi pattern! He’s a little King of the Jungle, and will make a great children’s gift for any kid who loves safari animals!  Landon is crocheted with yarn held doubled and works up quickly.

This 8-page pattern includes written instructions and photo references.  This project is suitable for familiar beginner to intermediate crocheters who are familiar with the basic amigurumi stitches and principles of doll-making.  That includes sewing parts together, sewing details (e.g., mouth, nose, paws), and changing yarn color.

Did you know...? I also used Landon the Lion in my Lion Brand Yarn Shelfie Challenge!  Click to see photos that I took for my Shelfies!

And, just for the heck of it... Here's a 10-second video of me knitting Landon his scarf while he sits and waits patiently.  (This is what I imagine happening when mothers knit for their babies... lol!)
