How to Crochet Large Amigurumi Bee

Have you seen those adroable crochet bees on the blogosphere? I am so in love with them! They are so cute and cuddly. The key is to make them with the soft blanket yarn. This way they are not only soft and squishy, they also work up super fast! These would make a great gift and you could esily have a whole pile of them done before the holidays!

Here is a free pattern for the large squishy bee!

Materials

For this bee, I used Bernat Blanket Yarn. This yarn is so soft and beautiful! This is not a necessity but just makes is softer. You could use other yarn or two strands of acrylic yarn if you wanted or had that on hand!
