This panda is the second of my sleep mask patterns – there’s still three more to go! It’s very similar to the fox sleep mask from last week with just a few changes to the ears and nose and of course different coloured yarn. You can see the complete set of sleep mask patterns by clicking here.

You’ll need a 4mm crochet hook DK weight yarn in black and white. For the ties I have braided together three strands of yarn and simply tied a knot in the end but you may want to consider using a strip of elastic or crocheting some ribbing.

Finishing 

Sew the eyes onto each end of the face then use a yarn needle and white yarn to stitch on the eyelids. Attach the nose between the eyes and the ears above them. Then, weave in the ends. For the ties I have braided together 3 strands of yarn and secured a braid to each side of the eye mask. Alternatively you could use some elastic or crochet some ribbing. You may also want to back the mask with some fabric to aid in blocking out the light.
