- Semi-cotton yarn Yarnart Jeans (55% cotton, 45% acrylic; 160 m / 50 g) in three colors
- 2.0 mm crochet hook
- 6 mm safety eyes
- Scissors and sewing needle
If you use the specified yarn and hook, your Cuddle Me Lion amigurumi will be about 16 cm (6.3″) tall. Pay attention that your lion can be larger in case you use thicker yarn and bigger hook.
Note: If you’re going to make a toy for a small baby, it’s better to embroider eyes instead of using small plastic eyes to avoid the risk of choking hazard. Better safe than sorry!
