Crochet lion amigurumi – Pattern (Free)

Hello crochet lion,

Rawr! I’m made this little guy for my adorable little nephew. Not sure if he’d appreciate a plush toy, but I know for sure that if he had a spirit animal lion would be it. So here’s my pattern for this lovely little toy.

Measure:

Height: 21cms.
Crochet hook size: 2.5mm
Yarn : 2 skeins of light brown coloured acrylic yarn
1 skein of dark brown coloured yarn
1 skein of white colored yarn

Pattern notes:

The pattern is worked in continuous rounds without joining at the end of each round. The semi colon between rounds indicates similar pattern is to be followed for the rounds between them. The mane is rooted*.
Rooted:
Follow the pattern under mane for the mane cap. To make the hair like appearance for the mane, cut yarn to strips of desired length to be worked into almost every sc on the mane cap. Fold the yarn in half; make a knot similar to the larks head knot in macramé into the mane cap.

I started to make this but did i somehow miss the part for the nose because i cant find it anywhere in the pattern



March 20, 2015 at 12:48 am

And i also cant find anything for the eyes and tail though i can make up something for that myself. I really love this pattern its better looking than all the other lions i looked at please help me finish it if you can 🙂



    March 20, 2015 at 12:51 am

    Sure! I think I actually made that up as I went about making it. That’s why I don’t have a written down pattern. Putting that up would do me good for future reference and anyone else wanting to make this lion. 🙂

Hi there. I’m confused about round 1 of the muzzle. I ch5, turned work, started in second chain from hook, sc in each of the next three chains. Now what? Do I turn work again?



    March 20, 2015 at 3:10 am

    Sorry about my average pattern writing skills. Yes, you work in rounds around the chain 5.
    Starting from the second chain from the hook, sc in the next 3, 3 sc in the last chain. (Turn)
    sc in the next 4
    And then proceed with the next rounds.
    Hope I’m making sense and it helps. 🙂



    March 20, 2015 at 3:14 am

    I’ve updated the changes to round 1 in my blog. Thanks for letting me know.



      Sara
      March 20, 2015 at 4:46 am

      I suggest:
      R1:Starting in second ch from hook, sc in next 3ch. 3sc in last ch. Rotate work and continue 3sc in back loop of 3 chains. (12 st total around).
      R2: sc in 3sc,…

      (This is the way I think you begin for an oval shape.)



April 2, 2015 at 10:59 pm

Does anyone have any ideas about how to do the eyes on this lion i have it all finished except for the eyes i would greatly appreciate some help figuring it out. Thank you!



    April 3, 2015 at 12:14 am

    This should help,
    Black coloured yarn:
    Magic circle, chain 1, 6sc in the circle. Join.
    Make two of these and sew it onto the head.
    Then thread white coloured yarn to a needle and make a single stitch on it so that it appears like the light reflecting through his eyes.
    Do the same for both eyes.
    Now thread the yarn used for his body to a needle and make parallel stitches, covering quarter of his eyes. These should appear like the eyelid, almost making him a droopy eyed lion.

Hello, I’m new to this. But I really want to make this lion for a baby shower gift. What is rooting? How is it done?



Valerie
April 8, 2015 at 11:49 pm

It’s me again. What did you use for stuffing? And it looks like you used an E hook, am I right?



Valerie
April 9, 2015 at 3:23 pm

Good morning. Thank you very much. the video is perfect. One last question. I am creating a PDF document with the pattern so i can save it in my electronic device. As i copy and paste i noticed the Head, Legs, and Arms of the pattern are missing rounds. Is this a fact or is it save to change the round numbers so that they follow in sequence?



    April 9, 2015 at 3:43 pm

    Omg! I’m honoured, somebody wanting to make a pdf of my pattern. I’ve added a semicolon between those missing rounds indicating that the rounds inbetween have the same number of stitches. Hope I’m making sense. 😃



Valerie
April 9, 2015 at 3:54 pm

yes. That is what I was thinking. I just needed to make sure. I can email you the PDF if you’d like. I’ve included the comments because the suggesstions are helpful.



Valerie
April 9, 2015 at 4:18 pm

I emailed the PDF to your email address. Feel free to request any edits. Thank you again for the cutest lion amigurumi pattern.

Thank you for sharing this adorable lion pattern! Do you have the directions for the tail?
Thanks!!



    May 3, 2015 at 2:28 am

    Thank you Dianne, I’ve updated the blog post with a pattern for tail. I hope I’m making sense and it helps you. Feel free to let me know if it doesn’t work.

    Tail:
    Using tan colored yarn
    Magic circle, chain 1, 6sc into the circle. Make several rounds of 6sc till your desired length. Make a 2sc increase for the next two rows and finish off. Sew the tail to the body. Root little strips brown colored yarn to the end of his tail.

Hello. I caught this just in time. I’m a Leo & this lion fits my personality perfectly. Doing it as I type. Was wondering how to do the tail though? Thank you.



    May 3, 2015 at 2:30 am

    Good that he suits you, :). I have updated the blog with the pattern for tail at the end. Hope it helps. Let me know if I’m not making sense.
    Thank you!

Hi,
I would like to know what can we do between row 10 to 17 of the Head ?
Thanks
Sandy



Natalia
May 5, 2015 at 2:50 pm

Looks like rounds 11 to 16 are missing in the head:
Round 10: sc around. (48)
:
Round 17: sc around. (48)



    May 5, 2015 at 4:18 pm

    It’s not missing, it means those rounds in between have the same number of stitches i.e., sc around for all the rounds.

Thank you for this adorable lion pattern. I love it.



Christina
June 14, 2015 at 12:29 am

hi. I’ve just started crocheting this. I’ve finished the head. When you say finish off, do you mean end with a slip stitch and leave the hole and then sew the head on the body or do you continue with the decreasing pattern until the hole is closed? thanks!



    June 14, 2015 at 1:27 pm

    I just meant to finish it off with a slip stitch. All parts of the lion are done
    individually and then joined. Thanks for trying it out. 😀



Megan
June 16, 2015 at 5:45 pm

Hello!! Is there somewhere a video that you can provide for the muzzle? I have no idea how to do it. Im just starting out and this is only my second project! Please and Thank you!!



    July 13, 2015 at 6:37 am

    Hi there, I’m sorry the round 1 pattern for the muzzle was rubbish no wonder you had a hard time figuring it out. I’ve made the changes now, hope it helps.

So, so cute!

July 8, 2015 at 11:59 am

Adorable! He’s wonderful. I have a question about the yarn. Did you use DK or worsted weight?
Thank you for sharing your pattern. You’re very creative.



    July 8, 2015 at 4:39 pm

    Thanks. I’m not well aware of the yarn types, and on a google search I’m thinking the yarn I’ve used is a worsted one. Hope I’m right.



Kayla
July 12, 2015 at 4:17 am

I am extremely confused on how to make the muzzle. I really love this pattern and would love to make it but I’m having a very difficult time with the muzzle. Could you please explain to me how it is done? Thanks so much!!



    July 13, 2015 at 6:35 am

    Hi there, I’m sorry I just tried following the pattern for muzzle and had a hard time figuring out what I meant to put there. I’ve made the changes now, hope it helps. Let me know if it gets tricky anywhere else. Have a good day! 😀



July 19, 2015 at 8:25 am

Do I need the mane for the lion I don’t remember using it the first time I crocheted the lion



August 9, 2015 at 12:26 am

I love this pattern. Thanks for sharing. One question: how did you stitch his toe nails?



Jen
August 19, 2015 at 11:59 pm

How did you do the mane under his chin? When do you attach the head to the body?



    August 20, 2015 at 3:06 am

    Hi Jen, I sewed his head to the body first and only then started rooting his mane. The mane under his chin had to be rooted to the head just below the muzzle.

I don’t crochet next to my computer. Why can’t I print it?



April 5, 2016 at 11:05 pm

Thanks for sharing! Im trying to do the nostrils.
In round 2 it says you end uo with 10 stiches but you really end up with 9; I think that changes the next rounds.



Marcia
April 15, 2016 at 3:41 pm

Hi! I love the lion and am in the process of making one for my nephew but am a bit confused on the crochet hook size. In the pattern you say you used a 2.5 mm hook but later in the comments you say it was 3.5 mm. Which size did you use?
Thanks!



June 6, 2016 at 6:29 pm

Hallo nur mal ne frage was soll das tog heißen. Sc sind feste Maschen aber aus tog werde ich nicht schlau.



    June 6, 2016 at 11:06 pm

    Hello! I’m not sure if this is what you are asking for. Did you want an explanation for sc2tog?
    It means using sc to join two sc together.



Danielle
June 14, 2016 at 2:02 am

I would really love to do this pattern but I don’t quite understand how to read them yet as I am still new to crocheting. . Is there any way you could make a crochet along tutorial video? I have a friend that fell in love with this lion and it’s the best one I have seen. I would love to make it for her and It would be amazing if you could make a video. 🙂



    June 14, 2016 at 9:18 pm

    Hi Danielle, I’m glad you like the pattern. As much as I’d love to do video tutorials, I do not have the time for it now. I’m expecting my first child any minute now(getting close to the due date) , and I’m afraid if I start with it I may not complete it. But I do intend on making them for you once I’m back and settled in. Sorry I couldn’t be of any help as of now. Thanks for asking.



      Danielle
      June 14, 2016 at 11:15 pm

      Omg thank you so much for responding so quickly! Congrats on the new baby and good luck with everything! No rush on the video I have tried starting it to see if I can figure it out. Will be looking looking forward to your future videos 🙂

Leslie
July 8, 2016 at 12:08 pm

Crocheting this guy is a blast! After reading several comments about hook size and yarn size, I would like to say I used 4 ply yarn and a 5mm hook and he turned out great. If you want him bigger I suggest going up a hook size. It does make him less firm but it works. Thanks for sharing this pattern free of charge!

Hi, How big should the wig cap be when compared to the head? I believe mine came out to small. I used the same hook and stiches but it barely covers the head of the lion. I just wanted to know if thats right or not

(oh goodness I dont know if my first comment sent) Hi, Im loving this pattern but i’ve run into a snag. The mane cap seems to small in comparison with the lion’s head. I used the same hook size and followed the pattern to a T but the end result is a little cap that barely fits over the top of the lion’s head. I dont know if this is right or not

    Hi Kat, the mane cap should fit snugly on the lions head. If you’ve followed the pattern, I’m not sure where else it went wrong. It’s been a while since I’ve done it. Can someone who has done it already help us out please? Sorry that I couldn’t help you.

      My cap came out the same way. Can’t even pull it over the top of the head. Think it’s wrong :/
      But the rest of the pattern is beautiful. Love it so much.

    Bonjour, pour la crinière il faut prendre un crochet n°3 au lieu du 2,5 qui est prévu pour le reste
    Par contre je comprend pas le sens a mettre sur la tête les 2 petites bosses , peut-être sur le devant pour relever la crinière ?

    I made the cap with a larger hook, I think a couple sizes bigger, and it was just right. This pattern is ADORABLE.

I am loving making this for my nephew! I am working on the mane and I noticed it goes from round 8 to 10, is round 9 omitted on purpose? Thank you for all the hard work you did creating such an amazing pattern!

Do you have this pattern available in a pdf? It is adorable.

Hi, I’m also confused about the mane cap. Someone commented that row is omitted.Maybe that extra row of sc would help make it a bit larger? Anyone else try this, or have a solution to make it a big bigger? And I’m not sure which way to put the cap on the head. Do the pointy parts go back to front, or side to side? I had a lot of success with the rest of the pattern, but I’m a little stuck here!

I don’t know if my previous comment went through. Did anyone have any luck figuring out the mane? I agree that it turns out way too small. I would think it’s supposed to fit like like winter toque (sorry, Canadian here!) but the one I ended up with looks more like a beret… not sure what to do looking for support!

    the row nine in the cap is missing so I did 9 and 10 in sc and followed the rest of the pattern and the cap fits



November 28, 2016 at 8:23 am

Rows 11 – 16 of the head are missing. Such a cute pattern but I need the rest of the rows.
Help!

I had no problem with the wig cap. I followed the pattern to a “T” and it worked out fine. I added the hair strands before attaching the wig to the head and was able to place it where I wanted it to be. It turned out great.

Hi! At what rows do you add the muzzle? I used the same size hook for both the head and muzzle but the muzzle looks too big.



    Susan Ziolkowski
    February 22, 2017 at 6:16 am

    Khrysten I was wondering the same thing. I’m with you the muzzle looks too big. Right now I’m making all the parts then putting it together. Right now I guess I will figure it out when I go to put him together. Hope you were able to figure out where to put your muzzle.

hi I really like this pattern but I am a little confused at the end of the head and body do you close the tops at 18 sc or do you add more row till you get 6 sc then close



    Susan Ziolkowski
    February 22, 2017 at 6:20 am

    Josephine Blankenship you do not close the head and body. You leave them open at 18 sc. I have a lot of patterns that are open like this. You just sew the head on top of the body.

I am working the lions muzzle. Does the parentheses mean I do the same stitch in one stitch or do I do that many stitches in the next number of stitches.

Hi! How did you do the lion feet stitches? It looks to be embroidered with yarn(? Or is it embroidery floss?), but I’ve never done one of these before so I wanted to make sure. Thanks for the help!

Hallo! Ich finde den Löwen wirklich sehr schön. Leider weiß ich nicht genau wie das mit der Mähne gemacht wird.

Just love how he came out I crocheted him for my new grandson who will be born in August!!Thank you

When you use a : does that mean you repeat that row until your next instruction?
Head round 10 skips to 17.
Mane skips from 8 to 10.
Legs skip from 12 to 20.
Arms skip from 13 to 26 .

Hi. I am about to start my lion for my granddaughter, but I had a question. Do you happen to recall what brand of yarn you used? I know the type I use is entirely up to me, but I have to order it online and it is easier if I can estimate yardage and not buy too much. Thanks in advance.



    September 13, 2017 at 8:38 pm

    Hi Peggy, thanks for asking. I live in Australia and I used the Acrylic yarn from Lincraft. It was a 8ply yarn, and finished the whole lion with one skein. The mane needed a little bit more than one skein of brown yarn to make it appear voluminious. Hope it helps.

    Hi! I wanted to ask the patternmaker this question, but I have to get this done soon. Did you make the Lion?

    I’m using 4 ply Caron Acrylic
    And the feel is so hard. Is it supposed to be?
    I imagined it soft and baby feel.

I’m making my first lion with your pattern. It is for my best childhood friend’s grandson. I’m going to put a fuzzy stick in the tail so it can be posed. Thought it might be a cute touch. I love the pattern.

Hi, so after looking over your instructions I noticed that you have several areas that are missing rows or rounds, are these rounds that are to be crochet the same from the last rounds? If this is the case I think you really need to fix your instructions so that people don’t get confused. I do a lot of crocheting and when I started to read your instructions I thought to my self did she forget to add the rounds as the same as round 10? Which I mean that round 11 – 16 would be crochet as round 10 and the same for the other areas. I know that it must have taken you a while to write these instructions for the Lion but it seems that there are a lot of people who want to make this Lion and when missing information is in the instruction well they just may pass on making it. I almost did till I started making the head and after re-reading the instructions over and over then it hit me that rounds 11-16 are crochet the same as round 10 is. So off I went and got the head done. Great job on the instructions just fix the areas that need to be fixed. Thanks

I love the pattern. I have started with 4 ply acrylic and the size crochet hook you recommended. My magic circle is perfect!!
But….this little lion is going to be so “hard”
in feel. Is it supposed to be? I was thinking a soft little lion. The stitches are very tight, giving my lion a sandpaper texture. HELP!

Hi! Did you root in extra yarn around the neck? Below the cap? My lion doesn’t have hair all around the neck. I’m certain I can just add it – but was curious if I missed something.

Thanks!
