Crochet Bee Patterns

Ahh, the good old honey bee. So loved and needed by our planet. Perhaps that’s why we have a special place in our hearts for crochet bee patterns.

Crochet bees provide a great way to showcase your crochet skills and creativity. Who doesn’t instantly feel soothed when they see that classic black and yellow stripe? Crochet bee patterns have become increasingly popular over the past several years, likely due to the increase in an adorable crochet bee pattern that went viral on TikTok. Generally, these bee patterns are quick projects and use basic crochet stitches.

These plush toys also make a perfect gift for a young child or even a bee-loving adult.

Amigurumi Bee Patterns

A lot of these are amigurumi bee patterns that are made using simple shapes like spherical and oval shapes. These basic amigurumi shapes are perfect for those that are new to amigurumi and are looking for beginner-friendly patterns to expand their skills and practice these specific crochet techniques. You will learn typical skills like the magic ring, single crochet, increasing, decreasing, invisible join, and finishing off in round. You’ll learn how to use plastic safety eyes and proper toy stuffing techniques. You’ll use tools like tapestry needles and a stitch marker to help you keep your work tidy and on track.

Crochet Bee Blanket Patterns

There are also some bee-utiful bee crochet blanket patterns as well in this list. Hexagon-shaped motifs in particular are perfect for the honeycomb look that is always associated with the honey bee. The great thing about hexagon-style blankets is that you can crochet them one hexagon at a time meaning they are great “take-along” projects because they don’t take up a ton of space and don’t require a lot of yarn.

If you’re ready, grab some yellow and black yarn, and a crochet hook, and let’s get buzzy crocheting these adorable bee patterns. Happy crocheting!
