Also look in the "Cub Scout Leader's Handbook" in the section on
uniforms and what patches go where. Under "Den Numerals," it states that
Weblos dens may wear a patrol patch instead of a den numeral, but that it
is still considered a den. (There may be other places that this is
discussed, but that jumped out at me while I was thumbing through this
great resource this weekend.
