YARN - The After Party 131 Leroy the Lion

By Sabine van Dam

Leroy the Lion may sit at a mighty 62cm tall but he’s a true gentle giant waiting for a new playmate to hug and adore. Crocheted with soft Scheepjes Chunky Monkey, this yarn gives his coat the loveliest thick, cuddly texture. Leroy is hooked using the amigurumi technique that adds to his strength and gives shape, character and definition to his features, majestic mane of dark curls and adorable toe beans!
