TOY AMIGURUMI BEE | Free crochet pattern

Say hello to Ruth the amigurumi bee! In this blog post you'll find the free crochet patterns for this cute amigurumi bumble bee in US terms.


 
Ruth loves working together with her friends and we have so much to thank her and her friends for! Did you know that to produce a kilogram of honey, bees fly the equivalent of three times around the world in air miles. That's a lot! So thank you Ruth for providing us with honey for our tea and berries for our smoothies!

If you prefer to follow a video tutorial you'll find it here.
