Pandas are the most adorable bears that never hibernate, unless you want to hibernate together for a sweet afternoon nap. Colorwork in this pattern is done using Intarsia knitting technique that allows changing colors without stranding yarn across the back of the work. There are only 3 seams in this pattern - 2 side seams & an invisible mattress stitch across the bottom…the back, front, and ears are done in 1 piece. This pattern is written row-by-row, including photos, color chart, stitch abbreviations, and explanations for the required techniques.
