Crochet Pattern: Bee Happy Honeycomb Baby Blanket

     The Bee Happy Honeycomb Crochet Pattern makes a beautiful baby blanket or lapghan you would want to use for years and pass it down when time comes. 


     This pattern is available in both Etsy Store and Ravelry Store in a large print, inexpensive, printable PDF file, with lots of pictures and step by step tutorial on how to crochet yours.

      It's made with bright happy colors and smiling bee appliques, it's also easy to make because it only uses basic stitches like 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.
