This border features a splendid shaggy lion, plus stylised foliage and acorns. The first picture shows the basic unit (large format). You mirror this pattern to produce the final picture. The second and third pictures (in a smaller format) show two ways that you can do this. I've added a border to produce a neat result. The fourth picture shows how you can repeat the pattern; this can obviously be extended as far as you wish.

The pattern of the lion by itself is on a separate page.
