Amigurumi Pattern: Learning project Lion “Lyon”

GRRRR stalking in the jungle it’s found our little ferocious … We present you to Lyon ♥ ♥ ♥

At the request of many of you who wanted to learn with us to make amigurumis, Lyon is born together with Chloe, Mía and Poly , they are part of the learning project that we have done in Tarturumies.

Learning Project Tarturumies

The idea is to show, through these 4 amigurumis, that you can get different options from the same base. It’s just a matter of letting the imagination fly.

Lyon was the last member of the group of 4, we love felines !!!! (If you have seen our page already you will have noticed our love for the cats). When we started making him, to decide his mane, the yarn made us dance a lot, but finally we found all his sweetness

We welcome Lyon !!!

Next you will find the pattern, and also the option to download the PDF, detailed and to archive with your pattern collection – Remember that with the download, which is totally free, you are collaborating with Tarturumies, giving us the possibility to continue creating free patterns to share with you all.
