Crochet bee amigurumi - crochet stuffed animal


Using my 3mm crochet hook the finished bee size is approximately 10cm (4inc).

I was doing the crochet bee in continuous rounds even if I have a color change. The color change will be hidden behind the wins on the back. But if you want you can work the rows each at a time and joining each row invisibly to attach the new color.

The stitches used in this free pattern for a crochet bee are:

  • magic ring
  • sl st – slip stitch
  • ch – chain stitch
  • sc – single crochet stitch
  • inc – single crochet increase stitch (make 2 in 1)
  • dec – single crochet decrease stitch (crochet 2 stitches into 1 using front loops only)

Materials and supplies used and needed for the crochet bee amigurumi project:

  • crochet hook (3mm)
  • yarn (cotton / acrylic / wool) – yellow, black and white – or the color of your choice
  • scissors
  • needle
  • fiberfill
  • safety eyes
