Ragdoll Lion Free Crochet Pattern
spinayarncrochet.com/ragdoll-lion-free-crochet-pattern

His finished measurement is approximately 27 cm/10.5 inches from top to bottom.

I will also say that I think this pattern can be very easily adapted. For example, if you used brown yarn, you could leave off the mane
and the tail and *poof*, a bear! Also, given the shape of his tail, you could maybe alter the ears slightly, leave off the mane, use bright
yellow yarn and turn this guy into Pikachu?! I’ll leave it to you!

Let’s get started. Here’s what I used:

3.5mm hook (I use THESE hooks!) for main hook;


2.25mm hook for toes and paw pads;
4.00mm hook for the mane;
Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Mustard (150g) ;
Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Terracotta (50g) ;
Light weight cotton yarn in pink for the cheeks;
Dark Brown embroidery thread for the toes and pads on the paws (I used DMC embroidery cotton, similar HERE );
Black crochet thread for mouth (I use THIS kind!);
12mm Safety Eyes ;
Safety nose (or black crochet thread);
Stuffing;
Tapestry needle

for second panel. Do not tie off second panel. Put both panels together, matching up all sides. Chain 1 and begin to sc around. Stop
about halfway down the first side. Pull up a loop and leave this for now. Now with your length of Terracotta yarn that you cut earlier,
sew the tail in place between the two panels of the tuft. When finished, continue crocheting around the outside. When you reach the
tail, crochet in the stitches of the front panel only since this portion is already sewn shut. Stuff once you’ve crocheted about two-thirds
around. Slst to beginning st to close. Tie off. Set aside for assembly later.

Cheeks (make 2) in light weight pink cotton yarn or embroidery thread:

With 2.25mm hook

Rnd 1: Sc 6 into a magic ring (6 sts)

Rnd 2: Inc around (12 sts)

Tie off. Repeat for second cheek. Put these aside for assembly later.
Assembly:

Step 1: Eyes, Nose, Mouth, Cheeks and Front Paws

First thing’s first! We need to attach all of our facial features to the front panel.

BUT WAIT! THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT: **Make sure your front panel is the one that you worked the BLO stitches on (row 25 of
body) and that the free front loops of that row are facing out/you. This is where the mane will be worked later!**

The first thing I did was attach the cheeks because I wanted the 12mm safety eyes to overlap onto the cheeks slightly.

Next, insert your 12mm safety eyes so that they are slightly overlapping onto the cheeks.

Next, insert a safety nose or stitch one on using embroidery/crochet thread in an upside-down triangle shape. Stitch on the mouth.

Finally, attach the front paws to the body by sewing across the top of each one. Tie a knot on the back to secure.

Step 2: Body, Tail, Back Paws and Ears

Okay, here are all the pieces you should now have at this step. Almost there!

Cut off five lengths of Mustard coloured yarn about 30 cms (12 inches) long each. Put them aside for later.

Place the two body panels together, matching up all sides.

**Make sure the front of your Lion is facing you as you crochet around the outside of the piece.**

Starting on the left side of the head, in the middle begin attaching the panels together by chaining one and single crocheting
around the outside of the panels in Mustard.

Stop about halfway down the body. Pull up a long loop and leave this for now.

Now, with your tapestry needle and a length of yarn that you set aside earlier, place the tail between the panels and attach it by
sewing through all three pieces; the top panel, the tail, and the bottom panel. When finished, tie a knot to secure and hide the yarn
tails between the panels of the body.
Next, you will attach the first back paw. With your tapestry needle and a length of
yarn that you set aside earlier, place the back paw between the panels and attach
it by sewing through all three pieces; the top panel, the paw, and the bottom panel.
When finished, tie a knot to secure and hide the yarn tails between the panels of the
body.

Now, picking up where you left off, continue single crocheting around the outside
of the body. Remember, when you get to the tail and the back paw, simply sc in the
stitches of the front panel only. Once you are past these, continue single crocheting
both panels together as normal.

Stop when you’ve crocheted across the bottom of the body. Pull up a long loop and
leave this for now. Now, with your tapestry needle and a length of yarn that you set
aside earlier, place the second back paw between the panels and attach the same
way you did for the first.

Continue crocheting around. Remember, when you reach the second paw, sc in the
stitches of the front panel only. Continue to sc both panels together as normal once
you are past the paw. Crochet around the body and stop a few stitches from the top.

Stuff the body.

Now, with your tapestry needle and a length of yarn that you set aside earlier, place
the first ear between the panels and attach it by sewing through all three pieces; the
top panel, the ear, and the bottom panel. When finished, tie a knot to secure and
hide the tails between the panels of the head.

Now, picking up where you left off, continue single crocheting around the outside
of the body. Remember, when you get to the ear, simply sc in the stitches of the
front panel only, since this portion is already sewn shut. Once you are past the ear,
continue single crocheting both panels together as normal.

Stop when you get about halfway  across the head. Pull up a long loop and leave this
for now. Top up stuffing.

When stuffed, place the second ear between the panels and attach it the same way you did for the first.

Continue crocheting around. Top up stuffing. Close with a slst to first st. Tie off. With your tapestry needle, poke the yarn tail back
inside the piece.

Step 3: Mane

The mane is done using a 4.00mm hook and Terracotta yarn.

Join your yarn in a stitch on the left side of the lion’s head. Work the mane in the stitches that you just made as you crocheted around.
When you get down to the bottom of the head, the mane is worked in the front loops of Row 25 of the body.

Mane: Ch 1, slst to next st, 5 dc in next st, skip 1 st, sc in next st, [skip 1 st, 5 dc in next
st, skip 1 st, sc in next st], repeat [ ] around.

Join to first st with a slst and tie off. Hide yarn tail inside the body.

Finishing Touches

Lastly, I did some needle sculpting to indent the eyes a little bit to add a bit of
character. With a length of Mustard yarn, you can do this by doing the following
steps:

Insert your tapestry needle behind Eye A (I started with the right eye, but it
doesn’t matter);
Exit the needle from behind Eye B ;
Reinsert the needle into a different stitch behind Eye B;
Exit the needle out the back of your Lion’s head;
Thread the yarn tail from Eye A into your needle. Reinsert your needle into a
different stitch behind Eye A.
Exit your needle out the same stitch in the back of your Lion’s head.
Gently tug on both yarn tails to create the sculpting.
Tie a knot in the yarn tails and poke back inside the piece.

Whew! You made it! Enjoy your Fearsome Lion!
