Christmas Panda Crochet Pattern

Find here an easy crochet pattern to make a Christmas Panda


Hi everyone! How adorable is this little Panda in his Christmas jumper! . You can transform it into a keychain or an ornament. It works really quickly!

You can find here the same Panda without the Christmas jumper.

The body is made in one part, so if you don’t like sewing a lot of pieces, it is the perfect crochet project for you. You will only have to sew the arms and the ears

Don’t forget to join my Facebook group,  you can ask your questions, and share your finished projects. I will regularly ask you what pattern you would like to see next (or you can even suggest something even if I am not asking!).

I hope you will enjoy and understand the pattern. If you have any questions, feel free to write to me, I will try my best to help you. And I would love to see your work!

    Thank you very much for the pattern! I have a lot of small amounts of left-over yarn in assorted colors that would work great with this pattern! These are also small enough that they can be made and given away all year long to children in need.
