When I was a little girl, I had a Bunny Ragdoll that literally went everywhere with me.  My dad used to call it Melly’s Teddy.  I designed my first Melly Teddy about 4 years ago, making it for my little girl.  Friends saw it, liked it and ordered them from me, and eventually I took the plunge and wrote a pattern for the bunny.  I released my first Melly Teddy Ragdoll “Sleepy Bunny” in June 2019, followed quickly by “Eliah Ellie” and “Rainbow Unicorn”, and of course I had to make a “Snowman Family” too. 

 

When I think of China, I think of the panda. The Chinese regard them as a symbol of friendship, peace and good luck, and are adored by the Chinese people. The Giant Panda is a mammal classified in the bear family and is one of the rarest mammals in the world and so that is how the Melly Teddy Ragdoll Giant Panda Bear came to be.

After the sloth bear, the panda has the longest tail in the bear family – and Panda’s love to eat bamboo shoots.

NOTES, GAUGE & TIPS

  • My pattern uses US terminology.
  • Crochet skill level – EASY.
  • I have also included helpful hints along the way which are in
  • Do not over stuff the hands, feet and head – think “squishy”.
  • Use your stitch marker by placing in the last stitch of the completed round to keep track of rows when working in the round.
  • I use the invisible single crochet decrease technique to make my single crochet two together. This technique makes the decrease much less visible.
  • Amigurumi gauge: 5 rounds = 4.5 cm / 1.6 inches in diameter.
  • Finished length: 35 cm / 14 inches
  • And lastly, COUNT your stitches and have loads of FUN.
