Teeny Tiny Bumblebee – Crochet Pattern

Teeny Tiny Bumblebee - Crochet Pattern
I created a tiny knit bumblebee when I was working on one of my knit cupcake dolls as a nice summery touch. Well, I had a request for a crochet version, as well, for use on one of my crochet cupcake dolls. I designed this teeny tiny knit bumblebee using Lionbrand’s Bonbons cotton yarn with a similar look to the knit one I made. I think it is absolutely adorable in both crochet and knit. Enjoy!
