  • Row 8 to Row 10:
    1 SC at each point throughout the row. (42)
  • For the colours on the bee to be straight, this last row must be closed with a sliding crochet. Cut the yellow yarn and insert the black yarn with the hook to change the colour. We recommend tying a knot with the yarn and then a chain to start, and then continuing the pattern.
  • The photo shows the colour change process.
  • Once the colour change has been made you can continue the pattern, which in this case will be three rows with the black yarn. Upon reaching row 13, change to the yellow yarn again, repeating the earlier process. Don’t forget to make a chain when you start the row. Each time you switch yarns it is important to keep the loose threads tucked into the figures.

  • To make the mouth and eyebrows use what you have leftover from one of the leg strands, without even cutting the fabric.
  • To stitch on the eyebrows you just have to make a line above the eyes tilted sideways. My suggestion is to do so between row 5 and 6.
  • You can vary the position of your eyebrows as you like, but always keep in mind that depending on where you position them, the expression of your bee will change.
  • I have embroidered a sideways mouth between rows 4 and 5. You can also use felt if you want to make the bee look like it’s laughing.
