Bumble the bee by Amanda Berry
Aww! This little bee is ready to pollinate some plants, and knitted up in Robin DK you can’t go wrong. This bee is knitted flat in pieces and seamed up; this pattern includes row by row instructions and helpful photographs to assist knitters that are new to making toys.
Childeric's bees by Natalie Servant
This lace elegant scarf is created with wedge shaped repeats that can easily be increased or decreased to make your scarf the perfect length. It uses lace techniques, and the pattern is both written and charted. We love Spud and Chloe Fine in Popcorn for this project – you’ll need three hanks to make the size pictured here.
Honey baby romper set by T Bee Cosy
Doesn’t every bouncing baby need a bee-themed outfit? This adorable romper set is knit in DK weight yarn in several shades. We recommend Cascade Cherub DK. The little bees are knit in oddments of 4 ply yarn.
Beeswax hat by Amy van de Laar
This hat is designed to be super stretchy, and fits most heads with a 20 inch or more circumference. The honeycomb is created using small cables, and the pattern includes instructions on how to mini-cable without a cable needle. You’ll need 2 skeins of Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend Semi-Solid yarn.
