He’s the king of the jungle, meet Samson the Lion!

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, change colours at the ends of a row and sew seams. Samson has a mane of curly hair which is made by knitting loops, and instructions on how to knit loops are included in the pattern. If you have never knitted loops before, I also have a free tutorial on my website to help you at http://fluffandfuzz.weebly.com/knitting-tutorials/how-to-knit-loops

FINISHED SIZE: The finished lion is 27cm tall (from tips of toes to top of ears when standing).
