I love this pattern.

In the illustrated instructions, after Row 7, you write:
'In the next stitch, work 1 dc, changing colour from black to yellow, as follows :

Insert hook into stitch, drop black yarn but leave attached, yarn over with yellow yarn and pull through the stitch (you should have 1 yellow loop and 1 black loop on your hook). Yarn over and pull through both loops on hook (the yellow yarn should now be on your hook). [9 sts]'

But there is no change of yarn colour for Row 8.

The non-illustrated instructions do not contain those paragraphs.

This is lovely - could you make a few and dot them over a newly crocheted blanket? Along with some flowers maybe? Thanks for the inspiration, you are a great teacher!

Hi almost finished my first bee, thank you for the instructions. I have noticed in your picture instructions you say 8 stitches and in the print version you say 9 stitches, am I wrong, does it matter? My little bee seems ok so far. x


Great pattern! Very easy to follow! Thank you so much for making beautiful crochet patterns available to the world!

I did it!!!! I am a beginner crocheter and your instructions were very easy to follow. I used a bulky yarn to make him bigger. He is SO cute!!! Wish I could post a pic on here for you to see. Do you have any other "critter" patterns? I would love to try more. Thank you SO much!!!!


I love this little bee. I spent ages trying to find one that I liked to adorn my crocheted fat bottomed bag (adorned with crochet flowers). Thank you so much, he looks lovely on my bag.


I love it! I have to make one and wear it with my crochet flowers, such a great idea!


Is there a video of you making this? That would be great.


I made him and he flew off into my garden to meet his friends; please have a peep!!

Thank you for this tutorial. I still don't crochet, but I have a friend who does; maybe she'll teach me. Your blog and tutorials really motivate me :)!!

Kendal hornets rugby club have a 'sewing bee ' group that meets every Thursday evening, we knit, sew and crochet items which are sold in the club shop to raise funds and to promote the community/ family focus of the club, we have jean greenhowe to thank for the pattern for a small knitted bee but I have tried unsuccessfully to find a small enough crocheted one, this is a wonderful find, thank you so much

Kim Clark

Soooo cute. Love love love it. I'm going to put them everywhere in the house!! Can't wait.


You make things so easy Lucy, thank you!

Anne Skene

Yes, I've definitely fallen in love with this pattern. As I'm making blankets for greatgrandchildren for Christmas, they might just have a bumble bee somewhere on each one!
Thank you Lucy


Thanks, Lucy. This is another your wonderful projects! It is very kind and most generous of you to share your talents. Have a lovely evening!

Christine Phillips

He is great, will give him a go, however, I will use dark brown for his body as I have never seen a totally black bumble be.


Very beautiful, love all proyects you have posted and have done several. Now i will be looking for the yarn to make this one.
Happy crocheting
