Edit: 2007 - Post cleaned up. ^o^ (Original post, 2005.)

Meet Love Love Panda!  He's from the Japanese pattern book, ami ami gurumi, available on amazon.co.jp.





Also, while learning to create amigurumi for the first time (I have definitely improved haha), I made my own pig and penguin without patterns.  These are NOT from the book mentioned above.  This pattern is Copyright 2005 Sharleen Morco.  All rights reserved.  This pattern is made available for free to Craftster members and Craftster lurkers.  This pattern, and items made from this pattern, are for personal use only.  Please do not sell this pattern or the items created from this pattern.  Thank you.

Thanks for sharing the pattern.  I've just started crochet, and I really hope that I am able to do them.  I really like the pig and the penguin.

That panda is so freaking cute! And I can't believe that the pattern called for 130 stitches for the scarf! The glasses look awesome! Remember to put Tutorial in your subject heading, so everyone else will see that you and friend translated some fun japanese toy patterns;p
