Little Bee – Tutorial 1

Here is a tutorial for a little bee I have written myself the other day. Please find a photo below of what the end result should look like. I used some scrap yarn I picked up from the thrift store and 4mm hook. I am very curious to see what you think or maybe I forgot to mention something in the tutorial that would make it clearer. Please let me know but be kind, it’s my first one…. :-)

  2. Hi Eve,

    This little bee is adorable! I very much like your pattern, and wrote a review of it on my blog (link is http://quirkiest.blogspot.com/2007/08/crocheted-bee.html) and I’ve just made a variation with stripes (http://quirkiest.blogspot.com/2007/08/bzzzzz.html), if you want to see.

    Thanks much for posting your pattern.
