- detailed pattern
- beginner friendly
Materials you need at home:
- Leftover yarn in YELLOW and BROWN. The best results you will probably get with sock yarn or merino yarn with a yardage of approximaltely 130 yards (120 sts) to 200 yards (180 sts), per 1.76 ounces (50 g). Altogether (including stuffing) my bumble bee weighs only 22 grams!
- 2 beads, safety eyes or halfbeads
- Felt in WHITE for the wings
- Set of double pointed needles according to the yarn you choose – I suggest to use smaller sizes than usual to make the fabric really tight
- Sewing needle, darning needle,, polyester stuffing or similar, scissors
THE STASH GOBBLERS #02
Brummel the Bumble Bee is a rather outgoing fellow. Despite the fact that his wings are far to small for his body, he is an avid traveller and a perfect compagnion for all your friends who need a lucky charm for travelling. Brummel would make a nice key chain as well. The bumble bee is an easy knit and manageable for beginners who want to practise their skills working with double pointed needles in the round. Brummel is made of leftover yarns and weighs only 22 g.
You know how to cast on, knit and purl, but he following techniques are explained in full detail: increases and decreases, i-cord, backstich (embroidery)
Have fun with Brummel! Yours Steffi from cats&hats
I love knitting! (There will be a longer version of my introduction soon, but for the time being, this sentence says it all, doesn't it?)
