Bandabi is the mascot designed for the paralympics.



Bandabi is an Asiatic black bear. The bear is symbolic of strong will and courage. Its name is also formed from two Korean words: “bandal” and “bi” the former meaning “half-moon” to refer to the white crescent on the bear”s chest and the latter commemoration to celebrate the games.

Ofcourse I wanted to design a crochet pattern for Bandabi as well !

And this is my crocheted Bandabi:

Together the are a great couple, don’t you think?



I hope you will enjoy watching the paralympics and cheer for the athletes with your own crocheted mascot!

Love Esther
