Crochet Pattern: Busy Bee Applique

By Candace – 2 Comments
An embellishment inspired by a wish for spring to hurry up and return, this busy little bee can be used alone, or it can pollinate all those crochet flowers you’ve been working on. As a tip, you can carry the yarn as you work to minimize the number of ends to weave in at the end. crochet_busy_bee
