Crochet Bumble Bee Amigurumi Keychain | Free Pattern + Video Tutorial

To bee or not to bee!

This keychain turned out so cute, I already made 3 and can’t stop making it. The pattern is great for beginners. The bee itself works as a keychain and also as a small toy.

Let’s start!


  • Medium-weight yarn
  • 6 mm hook
  • Toy stuffing
  • 8 mm safety eyes
  • Scissors
  • Needle

Stitches Used | Abbreviations

  • Magic Ring (MR)
  • Chain (ch)
  • Slip stitch (sl st)
  • Single crochet (sc)
  • Increase (inc) – 2st in 1st
  • Decrease (dec) – 1st in 2st
  • * * – repeat sequence


  • The head, hands, and tail are worked in continuous rounds. Aka when you reach the end of the round, you directly move on to the next round without slip stitching.
  • The number in ( ) at the end of each round indicates the total number of stitches for that round.
