Busy Bee Wind Spinner FREE PATTERN

Advertisements

I have seen a few of these windspinners people have made and they are super cute so I decided to make one for my daughters fairy garden. They look really cool when made in different colours and they’re spinning. I decided to add a little bumble bee on the end to make it look even cuter.

I used Stylecraft Special DK yarn and it worked out quite well. They could possibly be made using any yarn with the corresponding hook and also made a small or big as you desire by changing the amount of chains made at the beginning. I’m not sure how well it would work staying outside in wet, windy weather.

Hi, Welcome to MyBelle Creations. I taught myself to crochet around 5 years ago and really enjoyed it. Over the years I have made many different types of items, my favourites being my ‘geeky’ items such as the Labyrinth movie characters and Dungeons and dragons items. I have enjoyed making and sharing my patterns and finished items. Since my children have gone back to school full time, from being home school during the covid-19 lockdowns, I have decided to start a new way of sharing my patterns and items.
