Amigurumi Panda Free Crochet Pattern

This free crochet pattern for my amigurumi panda is a great project for intermediate and seasoned crocheters! If you’re not quite ready for color changes yet, you can make it in one color only and turn it into a different kind of bear. It comes with a 2 part video tutorial on my YouTube channel, in case you need visual guidance.
