Across the country, people have been buzzing about the two baby pandas were welcomed at the Metro Toronto Zoo this past October. Ever since they made their first public appearance in the Spring, the line ups have been of epic proportions, just so that people can catch a two minute glimpse of these cuddly twin Giant Panda cubs.
With the popularity of these two pandas, along with the popularity of knitted/crocheted stuffed toys, we are pleased to introduce you to the latest King Cole knitting kit, available in fine local yarn shops across Canada.
Each kit includes two balls of King Cole Cuddles Chunky, along with a pattern leaflet, so that you can start a Giant Panda cub family of your own! Each kit will make one adult panda OR one baby panda. If you pick up an extra ball of both black and white Cuddles Chunky however, you will find yourself with enough yarn to knit one adult panda, as well as two babies! (Please note: stuffing and eyes are not included in the kit).
Packaged in a 50 gram/125 metre ball, King Cole Cuddles Chunky is a teddy bear-soft, textured, synthetic yarn, which is perfect for making stuffed toys, kid’s sweaters, blankets, or even a soft scarf for yourself! It can be machine washed again and again, making it ideal for anything that a child may fall in love with- which is guaranteed to happen with anything made of this yarn!
Available in twelve kid-friendly shades in yarn shops across Canada, be sure to give a ball a squeeze the next time you see it on the shelves at your LYS. You will be hard pressed not to add a ball to your shopping basket once you have felt how irresistibly soft it is!
Happy knitting everyone!
