Mila the Bee is the cuddliest fluffiest baby bumblebee I have ever made - the squishy body mixes different yarn textures for a very tactile huggable toy. Keep the wings extra flat with a bit of blocking or stuff with crinkle material to make it even more fun for the little ones!

The instructions are written in English in US crochet terms. There are step by step photos detailing how to make the pieces and finish the toy.

When made with DK weight chenille yarn and DK weight cotton yarn (sample made in Sirdar Happy Chenille and Happy Cotton) and 3.50mm hook the finished bee will measure about 30cm/12in tall from the antennae to the tip of the stinger.
