This is a free supplement pattern that is intended to be used with either the boy or girl 9 inch bear patterns – you’ll need either of those patterns in order to be able to complete a toy lion:
boy bear
girl bear

Instructions are given here for adapting the bear patterns to make either a lioness or a male lion with a big fluffy mane – but be warned, you’ll need a fair bit of time and patience for this as each strand is individually knotted into place. The instructions here detail how to adapt the bear head pattern for either the lioness or lion. And all other body parts are the same as used in the bear patterns - though I have cast on and knitted the first 7 rows of the male lions feet in Yarn B, so that the base of the foot is white. There are also instructions here for making a longer tail based on the bear tail.

I hope you enjoy using this supplement pattern to create a pride of lions you can be proud of :)
