Cute little crochet amigurumi bee that looks to me more like a wasp. Easy and fast crochet project using only basic crochet stitches.
Did you know that "Bees are winged insects closely related to wasps and ants, known for their role in pollination and, in the case of the best-known bee species, the western honey bee, for producing honey."- Source Wiki
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 pattern are:
Materials and supply needed for the project:
RB - row done with BLACK yarn
RY - row done with YELLOW yarn
fill the body with fiberfill
Finish off with an invisible join and fill the body all the way up with fiberfill.
Mark row number 11 because there is where the position of the eyes
You can close up the finished part completely with a sewing needle on sewing the stitches only over the front loops or you can leave it open - it is going to be hidden in the body part anyway.
When you finish the wings you first lay them flat and sew together the opening and after then you lay them on top of each other and sew the ends together so you get a long double wing,
Here is everything explained in my step by step YouTube video tutorial.
