Hi everyone!
This is a gift that I knitted for a friend. She is really funny and sweet, and on my birthday she sent me a surprise box of merino wool yarn and a set of rosewood knitting needles. Friends like that are so worth knitting for!

She loves panda dogs, so I made her one of her very own!

I used Bernat Alpaca yarn in black and white for the body, and small amounts of other types of yarns for the tongue and collar.

I made up the pattern as I went along. This panda dog is about 8 or 9 inches tall.
Thanks for looking!

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

CUTE!!! You did a great job designing the pattern. Panda-dog was the first thing I thought of when I saw the thumbnail Smiley.

Thank you! I worked really hard to get it to look like a panda dog. I even made a tiny prototype to help me figure out the proportions and the shape of the head.
