Crochet baby mobileThis cute amigurumi bumblebee mobile, designed by Jane Bibby for DMC, is a fun DIY project for advanced crocheters.

The pattern uses DMC Petra size 3 crochet thread, which is twice mercerised to give it strength and softness. Note, in NZ, we stock only DMC Petra size 5 and 8 which are finer threads. You could use one of these or use DMC Natura Cotton. Natura Cotton is a low-sheen matt soft cotton. Petra is a high-sheen pearl-type crochet cotton.
