This pair of big cats is two toys in one! Knit them today to delight the friend of felines in your life.
To prepare for the release of 5 reversible patterns tomorrow, I thought I’d share with you a tutorial for creating the lions’ manes. Use this combination of embroidery and surface crochet to create fluffiness anywhere you need it. I’ve done this for boy dolls’ hair. I’m working on a way to turn it into a horse’s mane for an upcoming reversible toy. So many possibilities!
