Crochet Bee 

A fun and easy amigurumi project.

Crochet Bee.png

This cute little bee is made with worsted weight yarn. You can make it big and chunky with blanket yarn or make little micro bee army with sock yarn or dk weight. Use a hook that is about 2 sizes smaller than what is called for on the yarn label so the stuffing doesn't show. 

Happy Crocheting!
