Creating a Lion Applique
Crochet appliqué's—they add fun and fantasy to children's garments and accessories. You can create lions, tigers, dinosaurs, or dragons. In Baby Blueprint Crochet, Robyn Chachula adds an adorable dinosaur to her Callum pullover and the little frog on her Froggie Blanket delightful.
Stacey Gerbman's new children's sweater, in the Summer 2011 issue of Interweave Knits, features a crocheted lion appliquéd on the front. The lion's mane is constructed using crochet loop stitch edging.
Joni Coniglio, Interweave Knit's project editor, walks through the process of constructing the mane in her blog.
