Pandamonium!!

I couldn’t bear it any longer!!! (Bad pun intentional!) If you’re like me, it was so exciting to hear that two new baby panda cubs arrived at Zoo Atlanta this past weekend!!!  The timing is perfect because I’m happy to share my new  knitting pattern, Pandamonium which is available as a FREE download on Ravelry!!! You can find it HERE!!

Pandamonium is knit in the round from the bottom up.  The hat starts with a 2×2 rib and then continues to a adorable panda colorwork  pattern .  This whimsical hat continues with an ombre effect as the color changes from one shade to another.

  1. How sweet!!! My daughter, whose nickname is Panda Bear, is expecting her first child in December – I am going to use this chart on a sweater for the baby! Wish me luck – this will be my first colorwork project.
