Teeny Tiny Knit Bumblebee – Knit Pattern

Tiny Knit Bumblebee - Knit PatternI was working up another one of my knit cupcake dolls and decided to give it a summery touch. I made the frosting hat look more like a sunflower and decided instead of a cherry on top, it needed a bumblebee. Of course, the bumblebee needed to be relatively small like the cherry, so I designed my own teeny tiny knit bumblebee using Lionbrand’s Bonbons cotton yarn. I think it is absolutely adorable. Below are instructions for working this pattern flat and in the round. Enjoy!
