Moving Ears Panda Hat
"This adorable crochet panda moving ears hat will bring extra joy and laughter to holiday celebrations and different occasions throughout the year! The unique design uses an air pump mechanism to raise and lower the panda’s ears. With their adorable features, round faces, and endearing antics, it’s hard not to love pandas. So when I was deciding which cute crochet animal patterns to design next, a panda hat was a natural choice! These funny beanies make special gifts for kids or anyone who loves to have a good time. They make an impression on family and friends at Christmas gatherings and costume parties. Thanks to simple air pumps hidden in the long arms of the hat, you can squeeze the panda bear’s paws and make its ears flap up and down. It’s a cool effect that will lighten the mood wherever you go."
