{Crochet} Amigurumi Bee Free Pattern

crochet bee pattern

I am pretty new to amigurumi, so this crochet bee pattern is super simple. Crochet bees are really popular right now – although we’re heading into Autumn weather here in Australia, on the other side of the planet, Spring definitely has sprung! The teeny tiny crochet bees you see in the picture were for a Mollie Makes commision, so i’m not able to share the pattern for those. Sorry.

I’ve written the pattern in UK terms, but there are some US shorthand patterns at the end of the tutorial. Please tag your bees with #buzzycrochetbees if you would like to share your creations. crochet bee patternYou will need –

  • DMC Natural Just Cotton XL in Yellow, Black and White. This should bee (pun intended) enough for three bees with lots of black and white left. If you get an extra ball of Yellow, you’ll be able to make six bees. Does that make sense?

  • pipe cleaner
