One Piece Panda

This is a One Piece Crochet Panda apart from his facial features. I chose to do a one piece doll as I find it more enjoyable than lots of sewing. This is also a pattern where mostly single crochet stitches are used.





If you have any question or corrections please let me know as I will greatly appreciate any feedback! Also if you do try out this pattern, please post a picture as I will love to see your recreations.


You will need:

  • 3mm crochet hook (Can use 4mm if preferred)
  • Yarn needle 
  • Yarn (approx 35g or 100m)
  • Soft toy filling

Stitches and abbreviations used:

(I am from England but use US crochet terms)
  • MC - Magic circle/ring 
  • SC - Single crochet 
  • Inc - Increase stitch (2 single crochets into one stitch)
  • Dec - Decrease stitch (single crochet 2 stitches together)
  • SLST - Slip stitch 
  • FO - finish off
Other things to note....

  • This is worked in continuous rounds. It is helpful to use a stitch marker to keep track
  • The number in ( ) at the end of each round indicates the total stitch count for that round
  • *  * indicates repeated series of stitches
  • Use invisible decreases for a neater finished product
  • Stitches in [ ]  are worked into one stitch
