Bumble Bee Knitting Pattern
Yay .... the Bumble Bee pattern is finally finished. I'm just so excited. Pattern writing is always a bit difficult for me. Well, the writing part isn't difficult - I do that all the time. I always have a notebook near me white I work and I've learned to make sure to write down EVERY instruction as I go along. But creating a pattern that others will use, makes me a bit anxious. I take a zillion pictures and try to focus on the places in the pattern that may be tricky for others. I guess this is where I dust off my old teacher skills and put them to use.
This pattern is a little different from my other ones; it has the addition of directions and template for wool felt wings. The wings are not difficult to make, but you need to use size 3 needles, which some people find fiddly. Actually, the wings are really just a heart shape, slightly altered to work with other overall size of the bee.
I also included pictures (16 total) to guide through all the details of this cute creature. I hope you all like it and, of course, I'm always happy to any questions.
