This written crochet pattern includes all the instructions needed to make your own 5-way jointed lion with moving arms, legs and head. I will show three ways to make the mane with either regular, felting or eyelash yarn.

Includes one PDF file, 17 pages.
Pattern is written in English, using US crochet terminology. I included detailed instructions, many step-by-step photos and useful tips and tricks.

• 30 cm (12”) tall, with worsted weight wool yarn and a 3,50 mm hook (US size 4/E).

3. Intermediate - includes more complicated crochet stitches and techniques, making the mane requires quite a lot of patience.

• Crocheting in spiral.
• Chain, slip, single, half double and double crochet stitch.
• Increasing and decreasing.

In this tutorial I will explain starting a piece with an adjustable loop (magic ring), starting an oval piece with a chain, finishing a piece, joining pieces, knotting and hiding yarn tails.

For a little preview and materials list, take a look at the first four pages - http://engsidrun.spire.ee/blogs/media/blogs/a/patterns/EN...
