About This Design

The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend by Dan Santat has been a favorite in our home for years. When my son first connected with the book, I created a crochet version of Beekle for his birthday. He was so thrilled and it brought him such warmth and joy.
This inspired us to gift this book to friends of ours, especially in lieu of a card at a baby shower. I encourage you to purchase this book for your little one as it’s a beautiful story of friendship and determination.
I recently contacted the author asking for permission to create this pattern and he graciously said it’s perfectly fine by him. I hope you enjoy this book, pattern, and sharing friendships.

French Knot Tutorial
