This bumblebee would bee a perfect companion while you’re out and about. He doesn’t sting and would love nothing more than to explore the world.

Very little yarn is needed, less than 10g of each colour is what I used in the end to make my him. The pattern is beginner-intermediate and has few intricate techniques included. The stitches featured in the pattern are:
Chain stitch;
Single crochet;
Half-double crochet;
Double crochet;
Treble crochet;
Invisible decrease;
Slip stitch;
Magic ring.

I don’t include tutorials on how to make these stitches since there are so many resources on the internet. Being able to colour change is also a requirement.

What You’ll Need
• 2.00 mm crochet hook
• Tapestry needle
• 3 different yarns in yellow, brown, and white which are compatible with the required crochet hook
• A pair of black 6.00 mm safety eyes (or another substitute such as black beads or black yarn to embroider)
• Pink embroidery yarn (alternatively, a substitute like pink make-up could be used)
• Soft stuffing (like polyester fibrefill)
