lalylala N° V
« Not only outwardly Loni is a real lion – her costume conceals a truly brave character. Of course she's able to bare teeth, but normally Loni is really cuddly and very tame.
She is a true friend and will always be on your side courageously. Loni lays great emphasis on her daily midday nap and the extensive care of her luxuriant mane. In her free time Loni is practicing the race with gazelles. »

Have a look to that great tutorial by June Gilbank (www.planetjune.com) - she shows how to crochet a tight loop stitch, I used for Loni the Lion. The second video by stitchscene.com shows another technique to make a loopstitch. You should try both ways to crochet the loop stitch and decide which one is more comforatable for you.
If you've got problems to start the round with loop stitches on LONI's head or tail, you can work single crochet the first round single stitches instead. Use the remeining yarn tail from the beginning to embroider some loops onto the single crochet stitches later.
OH NO! Something went wrong in LONI's pattern! Please use those new magic formulas to defeat the evil typo gremlins. Of course all the lalylala patterns will be corrected and updated as soon as one of those awful little guys shows up!
