Bruno The Lion was inspired by retro cartoons and really old circus posters. But don’t worry, this lion is very tame. Wouldn’t he make the perfect companion for a tranquil stroll around the beach, once the summer begins!

Rowan’s Wool Cotton is great at holding the shape, even without adding extra wires inside. The finished toy has great definition, and can always be brushed with a wire brush for a bit of extra fluffiness.

You’ll need 1 ball of each color: Freesia, Chestnut, Blue Wash and Antique.

Ravelry pattern is written in US crochet terms, with step-by-step pictures and diagrams.
