The Crochet Honey Bee Blanket Pattern

Sharing is caring!

There is something sweet about this cheerful blanket. After releasing The Buzzing Beehive Blanket, I did not think I could ever think of another style. But I love when inspiration strikes, and I had been itching to do some cross-stitch. So I combined my love for crochet and cross-stitch together and created The Honey Bee Blanket.

About the Yarn

Living in Florida means it’s warm most of the year. So choosing a blanket yarn is very important, and I’m very particular. I love it when I find a soft cotton yarn that creates a stunning blanket.

Honey Bee Blanket

For this blanket, I stumbled upon Loops & Threads Creme Cotton from Michael’s Craft Stores. It’s the yarn that inspired the crochet blanket. I purchased the colors that spoke to me, and then they sat in a basket for a while. Whenever I saw them, I thought it would make a beautiful bee theme.

One of my crochet friends also released a pattern recently with this yarn and I love it so I just have to share. It’s called The Beach Day Pullover by Sincerely Pam. It’s a great design to show how diverse this yarn is and this really is a beautiful pullover for the warmer months. And can easily be layered during the cold months.

Want to make adjustments?

I know a lot of people do not want to cross stitch the be design, so I’ve also included a crochet tapestry option as well. The bee will simply be mirrored and turns out beautiful.

Other yarns can also be used if a different fiber is desired. The key thing is to make sure the gauge works. Each hexagon needs to come out as, well, a hexagon. So as long as each piece can be blocked to a hexagon which is equal on all sides, then substitutions are fine.

The blanket can also be sized larger or smaller by making more hexagons for the center and the sides. A visual schematic of the finished blanket in the pattern will help in deciding adjustments.
