To knit a little lion you will need:

Adelia “Valeri” (50% acrylic, 50% wool, 146 m / 50 g) color No. 05, one hank (50 g) is enough.

For the Nazar-Rus mane “Fluffy” (100% polyester, 90 m / 100 g) color No. 2019, approximately 50 g.

For Coco Print panties Vita cotton (100% mercerized cotton, 240 m / 50g), there are very few threads left.

Choose the nose and eyes, size, color and shape at your discretion – this will determine the nature of your toy.

If desired, a dry pastel for tinting, you can tint in any other way familiar to you.

You can ask any questions on the description on our forum.

Abbreviations:

sc – single crochet

dec – decrease (2 sc knit together)

inc – increase (knit 2 sc from one)

sl-st – slip stitch

ch – chain

hdc – half double crochet

The toy is knitted in a spiral, without connecting posts and lifting loops.

The description of the knitting of this toy is based on the fact that the beginning of the row throughout the knitting of the whole part does not shift and passes in a straight line, but since we knit in a spiral, without lifting loops and a connecting column, the beginning of the row will shift to the right, so every 4- 5 rows need to be knitted at the end of the row an additional column of displacement, so that the beginning of the row was again in the same place. These additional columns in the description of the series are not taken into account.

Knit ponytail

We begin to knit with a thread Nazar-Rus “Fluffy”, hook No. 2.25. The beginning row marker in this part can not be aligned. We don’t twist the tip of the tail, knit inside out, all the fluffiness remains outside, we try to capture only the warp thread, without lint, when knitting.

Crochet Ponytail Pattern for Athos

1 row: 2 ch, 6 sc in the first loop (6)

2 row: (inc, sc) x 3 (9)

We fix the thread, cut it, hide the tip. We attach the Adelia “Valeri” thread from the outside, so as to knit on the front side, and knit 30 rows without increases and decreases (6 sc). We fix the thread, cut it off. You can trim the tip of the tail a little, giving it the shape of a brush.

Cut the wire with a cross section of 1.5 mm, a length equal to the length of the tail + 5 cm. Insert it into the tail.

We knit the upper legs

4 row: (hdc, sc, hdc) in one column, 12 sc (15)

5 row: sc, (hdc, sc, hdc) in one column, 13 sc (17)

We knit sl-st, cut the thread, leaving a small tip for sewing. We knit the second eye in the same way. Do not twist the ears on the front side (it remains inside the ear).

We make a little lion

On the head, we outline three points of tightening: point 1 – the mouth, located approximately between the 10-11th rows, opposite the marker; points 2 and 3 – eyes, approximately between the 8th and 9th rows, 5-6 loops from the marker left and right. However, I still recommend that these points be drawn in the eye, and not in the indicated rows, because with a different density of knitting, a completely different result can be obtained.

Three ducks on Afoni’s knitted head, around a mane of a lion from yarn

We introduce a needle with a strong thread at point 1 and output at point 2. We retreat one column to the side, insert the needle and withdraw at point 1, pull the thread. Again, we retreat the column to the side, insert the needle and withdraw at point 2. Repeat the same several times, pulling the thread. Similarly, we tighten the right eye. We fix the thread and hide all the ends inside the head.

Insert the needle with the thread into the knitted head of Athoni. View of the knitted head from the left side.

Sew on the lower lip, curving it a bit (the beginning of knitting the lips is located in the region of the lower point of the hooks).

Sew the lower lip to the knitted head. Type of knitted head with sewn knitted lip.

Sew the ears with the elongated tip to the head. You can arrange them anywhere at your discretion.

You can tint the sewing places for the eye, mouth, and the inside of the ears.

From white felt we cut out the whites of the eyes – the shape and size is at your discretion. You can first cut out the whites of the eyes from the paper and determine the size and shape, immediately trying on the eyes. Glue the whites of the eyes, sew or glue the eyes, fasten the nose.

In principle, you can stop at this, or you can tie very cute pants to our little girl.

Knit panties with needles:

“Coco Print” Vita cotton, knitting needles No. 1,5

Designations:

7 row: chrome., 32 purl, chrome. (34)

We cut the thread without removing the loop from the knitting needle, we also knit the second leg on it in the same way.

Having knitted the 7th row, we add 3 loops, we do it as follows: we introduce a hook between the last and penultimate loops, grab the working thread and stretch the loop, hang it on the knitting needle – one loop was added. Again, we introduce the hook between the last (new) loop and the penultimate one, stretch the loop, throw it on the knitting needle. Thus we add 3 loops. We knit the next row, connecting the two legs.

8 row: chrome., 36 knit, add 6 loops, knit further along the first leg: 34 knit, add 3 loops (80)

9 row: chrome., 78 purl, chrome. (80)

48 row: close 30 p. (One loop remained on the spoke), 19 knit, close the remaining 29 p. (20)

We fix and cut the thread, reconnect to the 19th front loop of the 48th row and knit the middle of the pants.

49 row: chrome., 18 purl, chrome. (20)

50 row: 2 p. Together, 16 knit, 2 p. Together (18)

We close all the loops, fasten the thread, cut it off.

Appearance of knitting overalls for toys

You can walk through the edge of the middle of the pants with connecting columns through, so the edge will be more accurate.

We sew the leg seams and the back leg seam, leaving a hole for the tail (place and size are determined by fitting). In the last row of panties elastic with a needle with a blunt end, we thread the spandex, do not touch the front surface of the middle of the panties, one end of the spandex remains to the left of the middle, the second to the right. We put on panties on a cub, tighten the spandex to the desired girth and tie it on a knot, separately on each side.

We hook the hooks 1.25, knit the straps, you can adjust the length according to your cub, I have it like this:

37 ch, from the 3rd loop from the hook: 35 sc (we start knitting by attaching the thread to the back of the panties, not far from the seam – slightly to the right for one strap and slightly to the left for the other), sl-st into the loop on the panties (next to that , which began knitting straps).

Sew the straps to the middle of the pants, decorate with buttons.
