Materials needed to make an amigurumi bee

  • Chunky yarn in bumblebee colours! Yellow, black and white – can found here
  • 10mm security eyes.
  • Stuffing.
  • 4.5 mm Crochet Hook (or whatever size matches your yarn, I always utilize a smaller hook than recommended for amigurumi projects as it keeps your stitches tighter).
  • Repeat pattern between the asterisks * … … * Pattern is operated in spirals, do NOT join at the end of each round.
  • Pattern keeps in mind/ explanations specific to each row (info inside bracket composed in italics).
  • Stitch count in []
