Benevolent Bumble Bee
"The Benevolent Bumble Bee is big, sweet, and ready for a cuddle - no stings, I promise! Make one for someone special with this free crochet pattern on Moogly! The Benevolent Bumble Bee is made with Red Heart With Love and stuffed with Fairfield Poly-fil. By holding the yarn doubled, and using a small hook, the fabric is tight enough to stuff without needing any sort of fabric lining. This pattern is also made amigurumi style (but so big!) – the rounds are worked in spirals, with no joins. This prevents that tell-tale seem, but you’ll also want to have stitch markers on hand to mark the first stitch of each round. Believe me, you don’t want to skip it, especially when working with black yarn!
