Pablo the Panda

A long time ago, Masterchef was just starting, and I announced that I would crochet whilst watching. Well, the finale of Masterchef is tomorrow night, and whilst I’ve been a bit slow with the blog posts, I have actually completed a few crochet projects (including a crochet plane).

The first project I completed was Pablo the Panda, using a pattern from the Lionbrand website (lots of great FREE knit and crochet patterns). I used black and white wool from my stash – I think it is DK wool from Lincraft. I don’t keep my labels so I’m not really sure!

I made a self-taught crocheter mistake by not joining my rounds, so the black band around the middle doesn’t really line up properly, but I tried to hide it when I attached the arms. I also added an extra row of black than the pattern as it didn’t look enough to me. I didn’t quite follow the pattern for the ears because it was really difficult at night to see the stitches in black wool, so I just kinda did what I could and thought it looked good enough (I can’t remember exactly what I did now!).

I was originally going to put a bell inside and make it a rattle, but I forgot when I finished it off. I’m now thinking it might be cute on Number 2’s cot mobile for the early days when babies love black and white. I’ll have to find a couple of other black and white patterns to fill it up.
