With this free pattern you can crochet a cute little bee. The Minimee bee Mika is totally cute and a pretty honey bee for flower pots or the window sill. You can also make the crocheted bee as a keychain or lucky charm.
|2,5 mm (shown example)||125m / 50g, 100% Cotton||6cm|

For the little Minimee bee we first crochet head and body from top down in spiral rounds. Then you crochet feelers, arms, legs and wings for your Amigurumi bee. Finally all the pieces are put together and then you can decorate your Amigurumi bee as you like.
When your feelers are done, you just tie a knot at the beginning of the line of chain stitches. The thread end of the beginning is very useful to not break your fingers. However you need to be careful, that the knot is really on the line of chain stitches and not on the thread end. When you are done, you can carefully cut the thread end at the knot. But do not cut into the knot or into the chain stitches, otherwise it will literally dissolve in the air.
Next we crochet the wings for the mini bee in spiral rounds. We start at the outer curve and work towards the beginning. Since the crocheted bee has two wings, you should crochet also 2 wings of course.
Now you are almost done, because all parts are finished. Now you can do a first fitting and attach the parts to the body using pins. This helps you to find the right positions and you can still correct everything.
The feelers you tie both on the top of the head. They are seen from above in a line through the middle of the head and parallel to the eyes. The arms are tied after the 15th round with about 4 stitches distance and the legs after the 22nd round with about 3 stitches distance. Here it helps to find the middle between the eyes first and the to attach the arms and the legs to the left and the right of it. It is more important to keep the same distance to the middle as to keep the distance between both parts exactly. To support you, you will find here also a tutorial that shows you how to tie small pieces to an amigurumi.
The two wings of the bee are folded flat and sewn with the thread ends to the back of the bee. The open sides of the wing run vertically to the middle of the back and point on to the right or the left.
Finished is your little bee! I hope you enjoyed crocheting as much as I did. See you soon!
Matching the bee you can also crochet the little thick bumblebee. Both are an absolutely gorgeous couple!
