I have a bit of a thing about knitting insects, and decided to work really hard at a realistic bumble bee. Several would make a lovely mobile, perhaps buzzing around a flower or a pot of honey. This pattern is very simple, and contains a sheet with four pairs of bee wings for you to copy onto acetate. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knitting SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 2 inches long

Recommended with this pattern

  • 4ply wool - yellow and black
  • needle US 1 - 2.25mm

The inspiration for my knitting patterns often comes from nature. I love little knitting projects, and try my hardest to be realistic with my plant and animal designs. Often my projects start from something very personal: my own house or my husband's first car. Then I develop them into something that I think will be appealing. I live on the outskirts of London, and work part-time at a local school. My own children are always doing something creative. At school I love the days when we get really messy.
