Sew the arms to the body between rows 35 and 36.
Make a slight tightening of the legs.
Customize the pants as desired.
Sew the head to the body.
Cut the yarn for the mane
To arrange a mane:
Attach -2 rows below the muzzle in each loop;
– make markings around the face;
– fasten the yarn to each loop.
Design the tassel on the tail in the same way.

If you do not make a mane, you will get a cute bear cub, only knit the ears 2 rows less and tie a round tail!
Congratulations! Your lion cub is ready!
