Happy Thursday to you all. 🙂 I wanted to share my Chubby Bee Pattern which is FREE on Love Crochet. Perfect for beginners and I specifically made this so that beginners can feel encouraged by making this very easy to follow pattern.
I know when I was starting out with amigurumi – I felt a bit overwhelmed with wanting to make something cute but feeling a bit insecure about approaching patterns. So I started my chubby series to provide patterns for those just getting started with amigurumi.
This is a simple increase of single crochets. Starts with a Magic Ring of 6. Then you keep increasing each row. An increase in ami is usually labeled inc. inc=2 single crochets in one stitch.
After a series of increased rows, you do many rows of single crochet only to extend the body of the bee. Then the decreases happen to shape the bum. Decreases are usually labeled dec.
My friend, Stephanie did a wonderful version of my bee for those of you wanting to make your bee extra special! Be sure to check out her blog at All About Ami to see her additions. 🙂 Stephanie is a multi talented, super sweet and kind friend. She has many patterns that I love and excited to try out. Please go follow her on instagram and see all of her many beautiful creations. Her talent is beyond imagination and everything she makes is so elegant.
I will also make a video of my chubby bee one of these days when Hong Kong isn’t so gloomy! Lighting is so difficult and I feel I may need to invest in some proper lighting for that.
Have you tried out my pattern? I love seeing all of your creations. Be sure to tag me on instagram so I can see it!
