Louis might be a little panda, but he already has some very big dreams … Louis lives in a big forest, full of tasty bamboo. Sometimes he looks up at the sky through the green branches and imagines all the things he will do and all the adventures he will get up to.

He imagines himself climbing up the tallest mountains or wandering through the darkest caves, trekking through the unexplored and unknown and discovering it all. Once he even imagined flying through the air like a bird (or a fluffy cloud!), wouldn’t that be something!

Luckily Louis the Panda has a lot of time to dream and plan his adventures when nibbling his lunch, a panda has to eat a lot of bamboo after all!

The instructions are written in US crochet terms, with step by step photos detailing how to make the pieces and finish the toy.

When made with DK weight yarn (sample made in Rico Design Ricorumi) and 3.50mm hook the finished panda will measure about 19cm tall. Take a look at the last photo to see him next to Lulu The Panda, a bigger panda cub.
