A friendly lion who needs a cuddle.
This is an interesting pattern, it uses toe up sock techniques, seamless intarsia in the round (instructions are now included to avoid using intarsia), loop stitch and I-cord. The design minimises sewing and is a nice challenge for confident knitters.
Can be made using any weight of yarn but the overall size will change, the photographed sample uses:
350 yards Yellow Swish DK yarn (Three 50g balls)
120 yards White Swish DK yarn (One 50g ball)
30 yards Orange Swish DK yarn
4 yards of black Swish DK yarn for embroidery
