We have bees!
Aren't they both just the cutest?!?
Both patterns were pretty easy, straightforward.
The crochet version is written in English (British?) terms, so even though it says dc, that means sc to most of us here in the US. Just to be sure, when I was starting this one, I looked online for a conversion table, and found this one. Basic, but adequate, I think.
I didn't slip stitch at the end of every round, I just used the jogless stripe. It's not perfect, but I think it'll do.
When I was crocheting, it occurred to me that as I was working in the round, and as I was going to be picking up the same color again in a few rounds, I didn't need to cut the yarn every time I changed colors. So I didn't - I just let it sit there until I needed it again. The yarn didn't even tangle while I worked!
