Amigurumi Crochet Panda Pattern

The great Panda, the bear with world’s most one-sided diet. Since bamboo is so incredibly low in nutrients, this cozy giant has nothing else to do but sit around the whole day and devour kilos of bamboo. If you want this lifestyle for yourself, crochet this little Amigurumi Panda today … or if you just find Pandas cute.

The depicted crochet Panda was crocheted using a 2.5 mm crochet hook and the “Schachenmayr Catania” cotton and has sitting a height of 6,5 cm.

Finishing the Crochet Panda

Legs: After you’ve finished crocheting all the pieces, first sew the legs to the body. Start sewing the legs directly over the edge of the stitch row, which has been created by crocheting only into the back stitches. Sew the second leg 4 to 5 stitches to the left or right of the first leg in the same way as the first leg.

Arms: Next, sew the arms left and right to the body, just below the “neck”. Do not sew the arms directly over the legs, but rather behind the legs.

Eyes: Attach the safety eyes after the 7th stitch row counting from the top center of the head. The eyes are 4 stitches apart from each other.

Ears: Press the ears together so that they are arched outward to one side. Sew the ears after the second stitch row to the left and right from the center of the head. Sew the ears in a bow that runs backwards, so that the ears receive a slight curvature inwards.

Muzzle: Sew the panda muzzle onto the head so that the highest part of the muzzle is level with the eyes.

Nose: Embroider the nose with a black thread. Embroider the nose on the middle of the just sewn on muzzle. To do this, pull the yarn horizontally from one stitch through the next, skipping one stitch.

Bamboo: Use a khaki colored thread to sew the bamboo shoot to the end of one of the arms (scientists are not sure yet if Panda’s are left or right handed).

Congratulations, your own crocheted panda bear is done!
