Crocheted with white yarn

1. magic ring (6)
2. increase in each stitch (12)
3-5. sc in each stitch (12)
6.  decrease in each stitch (6)
7. sc in each stitch (6)
8. increase in each stitch (12)
9-11. sc in each stitch (12)
12. Decrease in each stitch (6). Leave a long thread!


    Pull it together with a needle, pass through the center of the hole, and bring the yarn out at the narrow part. Sew it onto the body so that we gather the little wing in the middle, then like button sewing, wrap 2-3 rounds under the wing, making the wing movable. If desired, we can slightly pull in the eye, embroider eyebrows and a mouth for it, and our mini bee (6-7 cm + antenna) is ready.

    The figure can be sold, but the pattern cannot be distributed!

    Happy crocheting!
