The now fashionable handmade direction came from Japan. Adorable amigurumi panda bears are loved by everyone. By tradition, such toys are crocheted, small details are sewn on with sewing threads. Each bear gets a name. They start knitting with the so-called amigurumi ring, from which six loops are pulled out. Next, twelve loops are knitted, knitting two from one. All amigurumi have one pattern - single crochets. Another subtlety is the very tight knitting, which is achieved through the use of a small hook.
All toys are assembled from three shapes: a ball, a cone and a figure in which there is a cone on one side and a spherical rounding on the other. There are patterns for knitting such figures. An absolutely even flat circle is obtained by adding after the second row with twelve loops of six loops in each row. The cone requires the addition of the same amount, but through the row. Cylindrical sections are knitted without adding or subtractingloops.
Cute panda amigurumi
For a knitted animal you will need white and black yarn, ready-made eyes, hook 1, 5 and synthetic fluff.
Start knitting with black paws (handles). According to the cone principle, knitting reaches 12 loops. Further it is created according to the principle of a cylinder up to the 18th row. After doing the reduction of the cone. Two paws are knitted.
Next, black legs are knitted. Start with the standard six loops, reach 20 and knit a cylinder for three rows. After doing a decrease of 3 loops on one side (this is the bend of the foot) and knit one row. Then add 3 loops in this place on the row above and continue to the 18th row. Then make a reduction. You need two of these parts.
Black ears are knitted from a chain of three air loops. Further, in the central loop, an addition is made in each row up to the fifth and close them. You will need two such parts.
The head is knitted with white yarn in the form of a ball. The muzzle - a white hemisphere - is sewn separately. "Points" are made from air loops with black yarn. They are sewn at the stage of knitting the cylinder. After the "glasses" are sewn on, the eyes are inserted.
The torso is knitted with a drop, changing the thread from black to white at chest level. Stuff the details as you knit.
