One crazy mixed up dude! The Liger is an adorably cute mix of a lion and a tiger – and also thinks boots are the way to go for a creature of his unique breeding.

Standing 16 inches/40cm high, he is knitted fat using a mix of Robin chunky fleece and standard DK yarns. Any fleece yarn that works to as near as 8 wpi as you can get it would be suitable.

Substitutes I have found are:-
King Cole Cuddles Chunky Yarn

Snuggly Snowflake Chunky


Fluffy Chunky

The pattern is clearly written and easy to follow with no complicated stitches or shaping and has many photos to help you along the way.

I can guarantee he will be a hit with any child – or child at heart for that matter - he is really cuddly and his sweet happy face makes you say gotta love him.

Materials needed

If you use another brand of fleece yarn, you will need to make sure it comes out as near as 8 wpi that you can.
