Color change for solid head color Buzzle Bee

Follow the directions for the head and body, but ignore the color changes for the first 13 rounds. Start using yellow yarn and continue to use only yellow yarn until the end of round 14, when you will switch to black, and then follow the directions as written for the color changes to crochet the rest of the body. You can make a Buzzle Bee with a black head and striped body in the same way if you reverse the colors used for the stripes.
