This cute little crochet panda blanket is just adorable and would be perfect for any panda lover or as a cute unisex baby blanket gift.

I just love this little guy – he has so much personality and I just have an overwhelming desire to hug him every time I see him. He just looks so chubby and happy. ❤️

I made my blanket with the mini half double crochet (hdc) technique so my blanket ended up being closer to a baby size blanket at 27″ x 33″. However, you could certainly use the double crochet (dc) technique to make the blanket larger.

I would say that this graphgan is a great project for the c2c newbie. With only a total of 5 colors being used and not a lot of color changes throughout the blanket makes it beginner friendly.

I used Caron Simply Soft yarn* from Yarnspirations for my panda which is beautifully soft with a light sheen. One of my favorite go-to yarns for blankets. But, you could certainly use any favorite yarn you have on hand.
