Introduction: Chubby Panda

This is a crocheted amigurumi panda that stands 2 1/2  inches tall.

I wanted to make a bunch of egg like animals for Easter so I began doodling in my amigurumi sketch book again. I came up with egg bunnies, cats, pandas, and a few more. I decided to try out the panda because a friend of mine is called "the gregarious panda" online and he needed a mascot lol. 

Like most of the amigurumi I have made lately, I wanted something quick and simple, yet still very cute. This is what I came up with. He doesn't really look like an egg  anymore, but he's still cute to me!

This pattern can also be found on my blog.
