Meet the Newest member of Madeline’s Menagerie, Li Bai the Panda! She is the big mama of the bunch, made of bulky yarn and towering over her little buddies. She has an innovative elongated egg shaped body, complex color work eye patches, and a heart of gold! (well, a heart of stuffing…)

This is an Expert Level Pattern because of the complex color work, but I believe any intermediate crochter could master the color changes involved!


Necessary Skills
