About the Busy Bee Free Crochet Pattern


Spring is one of my favorite times of the year. Trees are turning green, flowers are starting to bloom, and the weather is getting warmer. If you are anything like me your mood instantly starts to improve with each passing day as Winter moves out and the new growth begins.


With Spring and Flowers come our friends the bees. We have some pretty good sized bumble bees around right now at our house. Did you know that Bees are responsible for pollinating nearly 85% of the food crops for humans? So let's give a little shout out to the Bees for being such hard workers!


The Busy Bee Crochet Pattern is a great quick project for this time of year. This mini amigurumi bee is perfect for small plush toys for babies, or even a keychain for adults. The bee tutorial includes instructions on how to crochet a striped bee with safety eyes and little wings.
