12 Free Bee Crochet Patterns

Did you know there are more than 20,000 species of bees throughout the world? Bees are pollinators and it is estimated that one third of the world’s food production is dependent on them. Bees are also busy fighting against climate change by improving soil health and seed production. These insects apparently evolved together with flowers. May 20 is World Bee Day, a day to celebrate the importance of bees in our ecosystems. You can learn more and contribute to their preservation through the World Wildlife Fund. In this roundup, I’m sharing 12 fabulous and free bee crochet patterns for all ages to keep you inspired!
