The perfect summer project for a bee keeper or a be lover.

Make it for your baby or change the size to fit an adult, this pattern fits anyone.

The Bee Happy Honeycomb Baby Blanket made with bright happy colors and smiling bee appliques.



It's easy to make and works up fast.

It only uses basic stitches such as the single crochet stitch and the double crochet stitch.



The blanket is made out of solid hexagons joined with single crochet stitches which give the border a raised texture. 

Using shades of warm yellows make this blanket look like a honeycomb. 



The smiling bee applique pattern is versatile, one pattern can create a multitude of different looking bees: some can face to the left, some to the right, even vertically with one wing on each side of the body.



This pattern creates a cot size blanket or a lapgan sized 115cm by 100cm (approximately 40in by 45in). You can modify it to suit your needs by simply adding or taking away hexagons.

  1. You need to make a video of this. How many total skeins did it take?

  4. I recently started crocheting and chose this as my first project - I have learned a lot just from one blanket - I need help - how do you attach all the bee parts to each other and to the blanket - I know you said sewing it at the end of the pattern but in the list of supplies it says nothing about needing sewing needles or string ?

  5. Hi, thanks for choosing my pattern as your first project. The written pattern specifies you'll need a blunt needle with a large eye to sew the bees together and to the hexagons (If you can't find it, it's on page 2 under supplies). You'll need to use the same yarn you used to make the bees to sew them on, the detailed explanation on how to do that is found on page 6. Hope this helps.
