Stuffing For Brains

A friend of mine had a birthday and I sneakily inquired as to what his favorite animal was. He said a lion. I'm not so sure this really looks like a lion, but I love it anyway.

It's a Lion Brand pattern, which you can tell, if you're familiar with their patterns. He's clearly based on their "Amigurumi Guy" line of ... square shaped things. This was also my first foray into using FunFur ... which is insane to crochet with...
My favorite thing about this guy is actually his adorable country heart button nose and completely bizarre color choices. Needless to say, these weren't the colors Lion Brand suggested I use... but I don't ever seem to use the suggested colors. I like crazy colors and I like brites.

Yarn used:
LionBrand FunFur - Chocolate (this was, actually, the color they said to use)
Caron Simply Soft Brites - Mango
Caron Simply Soft Brites - Lemonade

This amigurumi was made in August of 2009.
