Recently, I knitted a group of small toys that were donated to a local charity. I found an adorable free pattern for a baby panda.
This adorable little guy was knitted in the round, beginning at the nose. Using the jogless stripe method, I added a touch of color to his mid-section.
The pattern designer, Kristen Howard, provided instruction for both crochet and knit options to make the eyes, ears and feet. I opted to make I-cord feet and tail, knit ears and crochet eyes. A small set of safety eyes, gave him a little more character.
If you would like to knit one for your own, the free pattern can be downloaded from Ravely (here).
