Crochet Bee Applique
How cute are these little bees? You can use them to embellish your bags or blankets and even clothes. It is a modular pattern that can create a different looking bee depending how you arrange the parts.
I needed a bee applique pattern for my Bee Happy Honeycomb Baby Blanket, but could not find a one that fitted the size of my hexagon granny squares and the yarn thickness I was using.
So I decided to make my own custom pattern.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
I am stuck on this pattern, can you help?
Every pattern you purchase from my shop comes with help and support. I will help you get unstuck and finish your project, so you can buy with confidence and try something new.
If you are completely new to crocheting, I recommend starting with beginner patterns and build up your confidence, pay attention to the skill level of my patterns and buy only if you are already at that level.
NOTE: The free version of this pattern does not come with the same help, just because it’s not fair on those who support me and bought this pattern.
That doesn’t mean that you can’t contact me if there is a mistake or something unclear with this pattern, it simply means that you will need to learn the stitches, the techniques and learn how to read a pattern on your own.
Can I crochet this applique using aran (worsted #4) yarn or DK (light worsted #3) yarn ?
Yes you can! The body parts will come out a little smaller than my own, but still in the same shape, use a larger hook than recommended to keep the size as mine.
Do I have to use the same yarn brand as you to get the same result?
No, you don’t. You can use any brand you like, but pay attention to the yardage, different brands have different yardage.
Can I change the size of the applique?
Yes, you can. The size can be adjusted by changing the hook size and yarn weight.
Can I sell items made with your pattern?
Yes, you can. Please check the copyright section for more details.
