I crocheted two little bees, using a free tutorial I found online.

The first one is 2.5" tall and is made of worsted weight yarn and a 4 mm hook. (I believe that is about an F hook.)


For the second one, to make it a little smaller (just over 2") I used light worsted (double knit) yarn and a 3.5 mm hook. (E hook.)


Bzzzzzz!


There was no info on making the antennae, so I just chained a few stitches for each. For the second bee, I made stripes, doing two rows (rounds) of crochet for each stripe. Each bee took about an hour to make. It was very easy and fun!

These little guys are just adorable!  I definitely will have to try that tutorial.  I've never crocheted any critters before but I'd like to try these.  Thanks for sharing!  Too cute!

Those are really cute!  What kind of stuffing do you use in something like that?  I'm new to crocheting but I think I might be able to make those!
