Crochet bee


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:

  • 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 supply needed for the project:

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

  • R7: {dec,sc}x5 -10st
  • R8-10: 10sc - 10st

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,

How to assemble the bee?

  • make all the parts - the body, head, and the wings

  • attach the wings to the body
