Crocheted Lion


Hi guys,

I have crocheted a Lion for Duncan. Duncan bought me a Nicki Trench – Super-cute Crochet book which I did think was a little weird as I was drooling over stamps and he had put this into the basket and said that it was not part of my Birthday present but for getting a new job. It took for all of 2 seconds after we got out of the shop that the real reason for me getting it was made clear when he said could I please have a lion and do you want to go to the wool shop this afternoon.

So I have made the lion and I have impressed myself as when making the little fiddly bits I thought this is never going to work……… What do you think?




I did not have any of the safety eyes so I used my cross stitch thread I have. I have used double knit Special by Stylecraft. So I was taken to the wool shop again for more colours to make others. I have a fairy to make for Jennifer.

Luv Jane XX
