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! 😀

Can Edward and Anastasia Bear be knitted with thicker yarn and larger needles?

Yes! They can!

copyright noreen crone-findlay

Edward and Anastasia Bear are 2 little bears that I have designed for ‘Your Knitting Life’ magazine (formerly known as ‘Knitting Today’), and they’ve been in each issue of the magazine since it started.

They are small… they’re 6 inches tall, and are knitted on 2.75 mm needles using Regia sock yarn.

Recently, on Ravelry, someone asked if Edward and Anastasia could be made larger, and the answer is, ‘You betcha’!

The humungous Edward Bear in the photo is 18 inches tall.  If you knit with 8 or 9 mm needles and super bulky yarn or 2 strands of medium weight yarn held together, you will get one very large Edward Bear!  Stitch through the hips to make them bendable.

I am so sorry, but the Edward and Anastasia patterns are no longer being made available by the publisher, and since I don’t own the copyright on them, I can’t give the pattern out.  😦

I am in love with these looms!

Last weekend, I made  a video tutorial, showing how to weave a triangle of any size on the Martha Stewart Loom:

You don’t need it for this bag, but it’s VERY handy for other designs! 🙂

And, happily, I have more designs for these great little looms in the works!

🙂
Happy Weaving!
🙂 Noreen
