Brave Lion Lovey
"Crochet loveys are an excellent alternative to baby blankets. They are quicker to make than traditional baby blankets and there is so much more room for creativity. This lion baby lovey is perfect for a woodland-themed baby shower and for fans of Harry Potter.
Gold and maroon are the Gryffindor house colors and the lion is the house mascot. The blanket part of this design is an almost solid granny square. You'll have that part done in no time! There's also a time-saving trick for the lion's mane that you're going to love!"
