Thing 172

Esther had swimming lessons this morning and I took along the panda and his last limb bits, determined to finish this project while she swam.

Due to yarn shortages I couldn’t exactly follow the pattern. His head is by the book, but I ran out of cream-coloured yarn and had to make the body quite a bit smaller. I improvised arms and legs to be more in scale.

Nevertheless, I like how the panda turned out. It was way too much work and I hope to never make one again, but if you want a crocheted panda it’s the cutest free pattern out there.

And hey, another promise fulfilled. Now I just need to finish the horse…

    He looks great with a smaller body. Yay for fulfilled promises!

      I think I even like the smaller version better than the original. Yay, indeed.
