Bumble Bee Crochet Pattern

Updated: Feb 7, 2023

Free Bumble Bee Crochet Pattern With Written and Video Instructions.

I think we can all agree that this little bee is the cutest thing there ever was!!


This little Bumble Bee is super easy to make and perfect for the beginner crocheter. The pattern comes in both written and video format, how cool is that!! The video tutorial can be found at the bottom of the written pattern.


The bee is made entirely using single crochet, so there is no need to worry about any complicated stitches hiding around the corner. The wings, bee and checks are all made separately and then sewn together to complete the little guy.


For the mouth I hand stitched it on using back stitch and black DK yarn, and for the eyes I used 10mm safety eyes.


The only problem you are going to have now is how many of these cute little guys to make.
