Busy Bee Throw Crochet Pattern!


I'm working on bringing all of my available patterns over to so every Thursday for the foreseeable future I'll be adding a new pattern to the site! Some are free and some are paid for, but all are fun & will hopefully bring a smile to your face.

Today's pattern is a crochet pattern for the Busy Bee Throw!

This was my first ever pattern printed in a publication. It was printed in the Knitpicks book, The Well-Made Home: Crochet back in May of 2015 and is super potato-chippy to work on. It uses only double crochet, chain stitches, and slip stitches so it's a really relaxing project as well. The sample uses 5 colors, but I've seen some scrappy versions that are simply stunning so have fun with it & play around with the colors.

"The hexagon pattern of the Busy Bee Throw is a modern update of a traditional granny square. Worked separately and seamed together, this blanket is finished with a single crochet border. Make it in traditional beehive colors, or go rogue and change it to bright pops of vivid color! Your home will benefit from either choice."

The pattern is available to download in the Yumi Yarns Shop as well as through Ravelry.

Happy knitting! 😘
