Animal themed beanies include anything from raccoon and zebra to bear and fox, with the black and white giant pandas being one of the most popular designs for such hats. The cute beanies are usually worked in white with black for the eyes, nose and ears. However, other shades like gray and pale pink are used sometimes for variation.
Knitted panda beanies
knit panda beanies look adorable on kids while they are also popular among young girls. Black pom poms come in really handy, making the ears look more real. Extra points for the tiny pom used for the nose.
If you need an idea for a handmade gift for the youngest members of your family, here is a simple pattern for knitting up a neat panda hat.
Crochet panda beanies
Those of you more comfortable with crocheting than knitting can also work a unique beanie, just follow the instructions.
Panda beanies with ear-flaps
Adding ear-flaps makes the hats even cuter, not to mention more comfortable and cozy. Braided or crocheted cords, with a tassel at the ends, worked in a black-and-white adds more contrast to the two-color pattern.
Simple panda beanies look nice on older girls as well, especially when couple with a fluffy white jacket and black woolen accessories.
