Finishing

Brush all pieces thoroughly with the slicker brush, paying particular attention to where eyes will be fitted, because if you have to brush here again later you can scratch the eyes. Secure nose to end of muzzle, stuff muzzle and sew onto head. Secure safety eyes to head through eye patches. Stuff body and sew on base. Stuff legs and sew to body using the photograph on page 89 as a guide. Embroider mouth.
 

Tip: To make the Panda sit up nicely, you could insert a bag of plastic pellets into the base of the body to weight it, before sewing the final seam.

I am really having problems with this pattern. I've already used up the yarn and I'm only half finished. And I can't figure out now to put this together. Any help from anyone would be appreciated!

 

Feb 24, 2012

Looks so cute, but Rnd 4 is incorrect in all pieces, and most (if not all) rounds are incorrect for the legs. However, if you have crochet experience (rounds increasing) it should not be difficult to calculate. I would still give it the "paws up"! Happy crocheting from 'down under'.

i found a yarn that is already fluffy called angel hair by sensations that i found at jo-ann fabrics. you would not have to brush the yarn at the end.

i could not find this yarn so i am using jiffy by lion yarn co. also, what is the size of this panda. i have started this pattern but the 4th round of the head and body seems to be wrong. it says you start with 9 stitches and wind up with 12. i think in order to get 12 stitches, you need to : *1 dc into next 2 stitches, 2 dc into following stitch; rep. from * twice more(12 stitches). there may be more mistakes in this pattern. i assume this panda is very small!

Cute Panda! My only question is....how large (or small) is this panda? It would be nice to have the dimensions with the pattern so we know what to expect in the finished product. Thank you!

Where's a good place on-line to find Sirdar Blur white yarn?

I have the same question....how can you make "6 dc" on two rounds without it puckering? It's an adorable pattern.
