Mini Panda Crochet Pattern

Find here an easy crochet pattern to make a mini Panda


Hi everyone! You will find on this page a crochet pattern for a mini Panda. It is adorable. You can transform it into a keychain. It works really quickly!

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!
