I've been to the thread at http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=fddfc9c065afd5a23902ccede3c55774&topic=30488.0 and starting on the penguin now... however I only saw the penguin and piggy patterns - can I have the panda pattern from somewhere?

Also... only the first couple of pictures are working at that link & I wondered if anyone has the pictures they can email me to go with all 3 of the patterns???

TIA,

Michelle

hi Smiley

the panda in that tutorial is from a book. someone provided the pattern for me, but after a flare-up in livejournal communities & blogs about copyright issues, the pattern has been taken down.

the book it is in is found here, and it also contains many other VERY cool amigurumi charts/patterns for deer, dolls, etc.

http://www.amazon.co.jp/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/books/4574802871/249-7064579-8599528

however, if you're in the mood to freeform.. it's basically created in separate parts, all crocheted in ther ound. an oval-like head, the body, the ears, the arms, the legs -- all created separetely, stuffed, and then attached to each other.

Thank you for the info! I do understand about copyright issues.

Now as to buying a book in Japanese with charts I don't understand... hmmm... think I'll skip that; but I do like the idea of psuedo-freeforming: as in, mixing and matching body parts to get the desired results!!  Cheesy

Actually, the charts were relatively easy to follow.

They show a diagram, of how the shape should look, then a chart that looks something like this:

4 24
3 18
2 12
1 6

so starting from the bottom, and reading up -- Row 1: 6 stitches, Row 2: 12 stitches, Row 3: 18 stitches, Row 4: 24 stitches.  Everything for the panda, and many of the other dolls, were formed in the round.. so you would form a ring, then just follow the charts.

here's a link i came across with some online amigurumi charts:
