Crochet a larger than life bee, that is cuddly! This big bee is approximately 11.5 inches long when crocheted with worsted weight yarn, but don’t worry, he doesn’t sting :)

{NOTE: There is a smaller version of this pattern: Little Bobby! Want both the large and small Bobby patterns? Receive a discount when you purchase both together! Just place both patterns in your shopping cart.}

My pattern includes step-by-step photos and you can contact me along the way to ask any questions: megan@hookabee.com

It is an intermediate level pattern, but only because there are a few colour changes, otherwise it is easy. The pattern involves starting with a magic ring, single crochet, double crochet, slip stitches, increasing, decreasing, colour changes and attaching pieces.

Materials you will need:

  • G US (4 mm) hook
  • worsted weight yarn approximately: yellow 90 yds (82 m), black 122 yds (111 m), white 21 yds ( 19 m)
  • yarn/tapestry needle
  • removable stitch markers
  • two 15 mm plastic safety eyes
  • polyester fiberfill stuffing

Note: If you are making this amigurumi for someone under 3 yrs, I recommend crocheting or embroidering the eyes instead of using the plastic safety eyes.
