Meet Kepler the Lion, the irresistible cutie with a wild mane!

Kepler measures 15” tall when completed with worsted weight yarn (10 inches seated), but can be made bigger or smaller by using thicker or thinner yarn!

You can also leave off the mane and make a lioness! (instructions included)

To complete this pattern, you’ll need:

  • Size H (5.0mm) hook, or size to get a nice-looking fabric
  • 4 colors of worsted weight yarn (Caron Simply Soft used in the sample): yellow (220 yards), orange (135 yards), tan (45 yards) and dark brown (5 yards)
  • A pair of 12mm black craft eyes
  • Polyester stuffing
  • Tapestry needle

This cutie is an intermediate-level pattern. You’ll need to:

  • single crochet
  • decrease
  • increase
  • embroider (detailed instructions included)
  • crochet in the front loop of existing stitches
