Rumi the Red Panda
Rumi the Red Panda is an extra-large amigurumi at 15 inches in height! This cuddly doll is made using super bulky Bernat blanket yarn and a big, 6mm hook, making this project quick to work up. Rumi’s design features a pointed nose with a beautiful forehead curve, ragdoll arms and legs, rounded hands for children to easily hold onto, and a long striped tail. You can customize Rumi using the traditional red panda colors of red, brown, and white, or you can opt for a pastel look with the pink, grey, and white that I selected. Different yarn fibers, such as velvet, can also be used instead of blanket yarn for a soft look!
Children will love playing with this exotic stuffed animal plush. Its kawaii style is perfect to add to a woodland, safari, or zoo themed nursery and kids room. It is gender neutral and a great gift for baby boys and girls. Make your little one a new and special friend today!
Rumi also looks a lot like the Pokemon Stufful and Bewear, making it a collector’s item for fans!
Height of doll: approximately 15 inches
Note: A different yarn weight, hook, and eye size can be used. For example, Rumi has been tested with medium weight #4 yarn, 3.25mm hook, and 9mm eyes, standing at 8 inches in height.
