We are adding the pattern to your Crochet Patterns.
The pattern was added to your Crochet Patterns.
"Spring time! Betty bee is gardening, mindfully watering her precious flowers with love and good vibes for the future pollen collection. Garderning is believing in tomorrow. Bees are hope for tomorrow's world. A super joyful amigurumi pattern to make when come Spring and Summer, accessible to beginners + to intermediate crochet lovers. Detailed pattern with step by step pictures. The Bee itself is worked only with single crochet, which makes it a great project for beginners. The flowers and leaves have more complex stitches such as dc, hdc, tr (but remain accessible!). "
