The Just happy to be here Panda

So. If you made the Raccoon in my previous post, this one won’t be so hard. It’s kind of like the same, with some minor differences. This is the pattern for my design, the Just happy to be here Panda (it’s very humble). If you use a thin yarn and needle size 2.5, the height of the panda will be about 18 cm sitting down, and 24 cm standing up. And yes, the yarn is  “Tilda” from Svarta Fåret again. (Safety eyes size: 12 mm.)
