Tutorial Portaciuccio – Re Leone Amigurumi


hello everyone, in today’s tutorial we make this cute pacifier holder, in the shape of a little lion is composed of a clip with the lion’s head, the lion’s body and the tail in the tutorial we do all the pieces step by step to make the pacifier holder I have already done the tutorial of this pacifier holder if you want to see this tutorial find the link in the information box or in the upper right corner these 2 pacifier holders are used in the same way for the lion I didn’t make the cord with the Romanian spikelets, I made this wide strip that represents the body of the lion then I made the tail with its tuft in this ring the pacifier is hooked but if you prefer to make the cord with the Romanian spikelet, use the tutorial of this pacifier holder here you can find the explanation if instead you prefer to make the cord all in this way weaving with this technique find the link to learn how to weave the crochet cord in the information box to make the pacifier holder I used this cotton, Cablè n°5, from the Silke brand in addition to cotton we need: a 2mm crochet hook scissors, a wool needle, wadding and a pacifier clip in the tutorial we will make this lion together to do this I used a wool yarn and a 3mm crochet hook so it will be easier to see the stitches as you can see it is also very nice made with wool yarn some time ago I posted the photo of this head on my Facebook page and I asked you what you would use it for and you gave me so many wonderful ideas so, if you are not yet registered on my facebook page find the link in the information box read the comments of the lion’s post because you will find many alternative ideas on how to use this head and now let’s start the tutorial for the lion’s head: we make a magic ring round 1: 6sc we close the ring we weave in a spiral so we mark the beginning of the round with a marker or with a piece of thread round 2: 6inc (12) round 3: (1sc 1inc)x6 (18) round 4: (2sc 1inc)x6 (24) we weave round 5 in BLO round 5: (3sc 1inc)x6 in BLO (24) round 6-7: 30sc in BLO (30) from round 8 we start to weave again normally round 8: (3sc 1dec)x6 (24) round 9: (2sc 1dec)x6 (18) round 10: (1sc 1dec)x6 (12) we fill with wadding we don’t put too much wadding, just enough to make the shape round 11: 6dec (6) we cut the yarn we close the hole using a wool needle how I show you in the video when we have taken the 6 stitches we pull the yarn we fix well, we knot and hide the yarn this is the basis of the lion’s head for the lion’s cheeks: we weave 6sc into a magic ring we close the ring and we cut a long yarn tail to be able to sew to the head with a wool needle we make the invisible closure how I show you in the video so we make another chain, and the closure is not seen we make a knot in the back with this tail of yarn we sew the cheek to the face now we weave another cheek the same as the first for the ears: we make a slip knot keep a long tail of yarn at the beginning ch4 starting from the 2nd chain from the crochet hook we weave: 1sc, 1hdc, 1dc ch1 to secure and we cut a long tail of yarn the ear is complete now we make another one the same for the nose: we keep a long tail of yarn at the beginning and we make a magic ring round 1: 3sc ch1 to secure and we cut a long tail of yarn we close the ring the nose is complete we fix the cheeks to the face with some pins in this position follow the tutorial to learn how to sew the cheeks when the cheek is sewn let the yarn come out of a hole of amigurumi from which the yarn of the other cheek also comes out let’s check that the work is perfect in front and we knot the yarns cut one of the 2 yarns at the root and hide the knot and the other yarn inside the head and we cut in this way the knots are not seen place the nose between the cheeks and sew it and now we embroider the mouth this is the magic ring tail of yarn when the embroidery is complete on the back we knot the yarns as we have learned we knot the yarns and hide them inside the head now we weave the mane we weave in the free thread of the chain of the rounds that we have woven in BLO here round 5 starts when sewing the cheeks keep the beginning of the round at the bottom this is the first stitch of round 5 instead of starting from this stitch let’s start from 2 points further back of round 6 we hook the yarn at this stitch I made a slip knot we hook with 1slst ch4 1slst in the same stitch (1slst, ch4, 1slst) in the next stitch now we weave in the first stitch of round 5 1slst, ch4, 1slst in the same stitch weaving the first 2 stitches in round 6 we have flattened the step of the spiral working now let’s continue in each stitch we weave: (1slst, ch4, 1slst) and repeat in each stitch we weave: (1slst, ch4, 1slst) when the first round is complete we arrive at the 2 stitches, of this round, from which we started in these 2 stitches we weave 2slst to follow with the following points we start again to weave the sequence from the first available stitch (1slst, ch4, 1slst) for the whole round 2 of the mane when even round 2 of the mane is complete ch1 to secure and we cut the yarn we hook the brown yarn in the next stitch if you want to make a mane using only one color continue with the first color in the third round the sequence is simpler in each stitch we weave: (1slst, ch4) in this way we complete the round when the round is complete we connect the beginning and the end of the round in the last stitch we weave 1slst ch4 now 1slst in the first stitch of the round ch1 to secure and we cut the yarn we sew the ears between round 1 and 2 of the mane we knot and hide the yarns as we have learned we embroider the eyes with a black yarn on the back we insert the needle in a hole between the stitches and let the needle out on the front we keep a tail of yarn on the back we embroider the 2 eyes with these 2 stitches we give the shape to the snout we pull the yarns in this way we give the shape to the muzzle when we get the shape we like, we embroider the eyes with some stitches when we like the eyes we pass the yarn on the back, we knot and hide if you want to give life to the eyes, embroider 2 dots with white yarn I used a piece of white yarn of the same type that I used for the rest of the lion the lion’s head is complete let’s see now how to weave the strip that we attach to the clip we make a slip knot with the lion color yarn or with the color you prefer and we weave 7sc in the clip as if we were weaving in the magic ring row 1: 7sc to weave the entire strip we repeat row 1 row 2-37: ch1 7sc after weaving row 37 we weave 2 rows of decreases row 38: ch1 1dec 3sc 1dec (5) row 39: ch1 1dec 1sc 1dec (3) we turn the work and we weave the crochet icord in this row there are 3 stitches now we load the 3 stitches on the crochet the 1st point is already on the crochet hook, it is this loop let’s load the 2nd stitch and the 3rd we hold the beginning and the end of the work between our fingers we extract the crochet hook from the first 2 loops and we weave 1 stitch at a time 1 2 3 and we still hold the work between our fingers 1 2 3 I’ll show you again the important thing is to tighten the beginning and the end and we weave one stitch at a time this is the cord we get if you have never woven this cord I suggest you see the tutorial where I explain this technique find the link in the upper right corner and in the information box we weave in this way until we get a cord about 20cm long when the cord is as long as you want we weave a chain to close the 3 stitches ch1 to secure and cut a long tail of yarn for the tuft of the tail: in a magic ring we weave 6sc we pull the yarn but we don’t close the ring at all and we pass the tail of yarn on the front round 2-3: 6sc round 4: (1dec 1sc)x2 (4) when round 4 is complete, we have 4 stitches in the round we cut a long tail of yarn and with a wool needle we close the hole as we have learned we knot and hide the yarn and sew the 2 pieces insert the cord thread into a wool needle and we insert it in the hole of the magic ring let the cord enter the tuft we pull the magic ring thread to close the hole in this way we sew the tuft to the tail with the thread of the magic ring we pass with the thread over the crochet stitches so the seam will not be visible when the seam is made we hide the yarn and cut it now with the tail of yarn of the cord we sew the tuft to the tail to create the loop in which to hook the pacifier by passing the needle in and out of the same stitch, sewing will be easy and you will not see the yellow thread on the tuft when the stitching is done, we hide the yarn inside the tuft and cut it the body of the lion and the tail are completed now we just have to hook the lion’s head to the clip to sew the lion’s head on the clip take a piece of yarn the same color as the lion’s head if, as in the tutorial, you used the yellow yarn, use the yellow yarn and hook the clip how to do it depends on the type of clip you have I have this type of clip and the only way to sew this clip it’s sewing at this point so I’ll do a few laps around here and inside the lion’s head to join the head to the clip if you have a different clip find a way to sew your clip to the lion’s head then we hook the yarn knotting and we sew with some stitches we firmly stretch the yarn when the seam is completed, we knot and hide the yarn in this way the lion’s head is firmly hooked to the pacifier holder and the pacifier holder is completed I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that is useful to you I’m waiting to see all your
