Panda Baby Hat

The panda is now classified as a bear again! What a shocker. They seems so adorable and cuddly, just like newborn babies. What better way to keep the little ones warm than with little panda hats of their own?

This panda baby hat is made with two strands of yarn crocheted at the same time. It could also be done with bulky yarn or with one strand of medium worsted weight yarn and one strand of fun fur. The ears, eye spots, nose and snout are all crocheted separately and sewn on. Even so, this is a quick project.
