Betty The Gardening Bee

By: Clotilde Dhenaut from Octopus Crochet
Betty The Gardening Bee
Betty The Gardening Bee

"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!). "

NotesI hope you'll enjoy this pattern, if you have any question I'm glad to help, just send me an email, you'll find an address in the contact page of my blog.

I’d be really happy to see your finished Betty bee ! Tag me on Instagram, you can find me as @octopuscrochetdesign and use the hashtag #octopuscrochetdesign

I look forward to seeing it!

Materials List

  • #4 / aran / worsted yarn, 8ply, 80% cotton 20% Milk Fiber, in white, black, yellow, straw, forest green and brown (I use a local shop yarn, an equivalent would be Paintbox Cotton Aran but keep the 3.5mm hook to obtain tight stitches and avoid gaps where the fiberfill shows)

  • A small piece of pink (or coral / orange) embroidery thread (or ply from a thicker yarn) to embroider a flower on the gardening apron.
  • Tapestry needle
  • Fiberfill
  • A pair of 8mm safety eyes
  • A small decorative flower pot of 5cm (2″) diameter at the top.
