Big Bee Amigurumi Pattern


Buzz buzz buzz...Bees are a staple of crochet projects, and whilst there are already a multitude of patterns out there, each is unique and and I thought, why not share mine? I wrote a pattern for a smaller bee a few months ago, and have now designed a larger one (perhaps a queen bee?). So grab your hooks and let's get crocheting!





Link to my mini bee can be found here.


Writing my patterns can be quite time consuming and I do my best to make sure they are clear, coherent and easy to follow. Since I provide them for free, I would appreciate it if you could please follow me on Instagram @slipstitch_hollow or on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/slipstitchhollow. Or, you can sign up to my mailing list! By following me through these platforms, you will receive all updates about new patterns, items for sale, art installations and my undying gratitude! :)
