Excellent pattern. Easy to knit although I made the mane differently as I was making for a baby so it needed to be less fluffy. However the size and shape is otherwise perfect for small hands. My grandson loves it.
I am knitting this for my 38 year old son in the hope that he can use it in a book or series of books) to help Dutch children learn to read in English. He has a cloth version which he takes photos of Leo ding different things (cooking, helping to mend the shower etc) I said he could write books illustrated with these photos but he said he couldn't do this as Leo de Leeuw is a commercial toy. What is your position on this?
Looking forward to making this lion. It is very colourful.
