Earlier this year I decided to make amigurumi of the 4 Hogwarts house animals wearing their respective scarves. This is the only one that I managed to complete because life happened, so I'm uploading it as its own thing. No idea if I'll go back and finish the rest of them.
The scarf is a separate piece and can be taken off. I've included alternate instructions for the head if you don't want to make a scarf for him. This involves just taking out a few rounds of the head, otherwise the neck will look too long without the scarf there. Here's a picture of another lion made with the extra rounds taken off:
I decided to upload this now because winter is coming and amigurumi need scarves too! Plus that new Harry Potter movie is coming out next month so the timing is perfect.
