Panda cuteness

I have to confess that I am a sucker for Pandas.

The bond was formed in childhood, when my beloved teddy was a panda (a pink and white one at that- you can see the very tiny homage I made to her on my website at About Us )

Panda designed by Noreen Crone-Findlay for Lion Brand yarns/Martha Stewart Loom

I hope that I will contribute to other people’s Panda love with this design for a Panda bear knitted on the Martha Stewart loom.

The design is available free at: Panda pattern

Please note… there is an error in the pattern- (honest, I sent the whole thing in, so it got munched somewhere in editing land)

The instructions for the arms are missing:

Here they are:

With Shape # 1:
Arms: make 2: Knit 25 rounds. Cut yarn and gather last row (See Notes).

Arms: Stuff the arms. Sew arms to body at shoulders.

I’ll send them a note to hopefully get this fixed asap!

Panda hugs all round! πŸ˜€

    I started making this panda bear and the pattern from Lion Brand does not have any instructions for the arms of the panda. No knitting instructions and no instructions for sewing the arms on the bear. I have reread this pattern several times and still can’t find anything about the arms.
    Does someone have instructions that they can post?

    Thank you.


    • Hi Susan
      Thank you so much for catching this error…. I went back to my original pattern that I submitted to the company, and WHEW!!!! the arms are there in the pattern.

      Here’s the instructions:
      With Shape # 1:
      Arms: make 2: Knit 25 rounds. Cut yarn and gather last row (See Notes).

      I’ll send a note to my editor at Lion Brand and get them to fix the mistake
      Thank you again for getting in touch with me!
      all the best

    Thank you soooo much!! I want to make one of these for each of my 4 grandkids – even the two that are 20 yrs and 19yrs old πŸ™‚


  3. You are so welcome, Susan! I am amazed that no one has noticed it before! eep!
    I think that there is noooooooooooooo age limit on Panda bears. They are powerfully good for the soul, no matter what our age…. πŸ™‚
    and I am so glad that your 19 and 20 year old grands are going to have them! πŸ˜€
