Velvet Lion Amigurumi free crochet pattern
Recently, the use of velvet rope in amigurumi making has become very prominent. Although it is not very useful in general, there are very good examples in terms of appearance. Especially being easy to make is a very important factor in this regard. I will share a beautiful velvet lion amigurumi pattern as you can see in the pattern. It’s a pretty simple recipe. I translated from Russian, if there is a mistake, let me know. I can make the necessary corrections.
The amigurumi pattern is actually a bit original. This is a really good work. The lion’s manes are combined with his hair. Using very vibrant colors makes it a bit difficult to use. However, the issue of color preference is entirely in your hands. You can knit crochet with the color you want.
