Bumble the Bee

Introduction
My husband has been asking me to make him a bee for awhile now! Having finally almost finished Babette Blanket (and being out of the wool I need to complete its edging), I thought I’d go for the bee at long last!

Materials List
2.5mm hook a small amount of yellow wool a small amount of gray wool stitch marker (I used King Cole Merino Blend DK in amber and dark gray)

Finished Size
My finished Bee is just under 2 inches long.

Gauge
Gauge is unimportant for this project.

Notes

2 sc in next stitch. 2 sc. finish off. (mark 6th st) Row 2: 2 sc in next 6 st (12sc. sc in next 3 st. turn Round 2: 1 sc in next 2 st. mark 12th st) Row 12: dec next 12 st (6 sc). then 2sc in opposite side of the st you just worked 2 sc into. Stuff the little dude with whatever fuzzy/fluffy stuff you have to hand (I save the little ends from other projects and use those) Weave the yarn through the last 6 st and pull tightly to close. make sure you mark your final st or the round so you know where ‘the beginning’ is. The Pattern BODY: Ch 2 Row 1: 6 sc in 1st ch. mark 12th st) Row 3: *1 sc in 1st st. mark 18th st) Row 6-7: Change to yellow and sc around as in rows 4-5. Then sew all the bits toghether!
