Bee



I had a request from a honey maker for some decorations for a farmer's market table. This is the first of the bees. As I went hunting for bee patterns I was pleasantly suprised to discover one of my favorite Ami designers Aradiya Toys not only had a pattern but it was free and you can find it here.



I've been on a quest to use up yarn on hand where ever possible. The pattern calls for Ariadna KAJA yarn and a .85mm steel crochet thread hook and creates about a 5cm bee. I'd didn't know much about this yarn but in looking it up online it looks to be a crochet thread, based on the hook size that makes sense.



I wanted a slightly larger bee and where possible I've been trying to use yarn on hand. I had two choices of sports cotton but loooking at my colors on hand I went with Omega Sinfonia yellow and black. Having used this yarn and worked with patterns from this designer before I chose a b hook and I liked the look of the finished bee.
