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:
