CROCHET HONEYCOMB BEE HOLDER

Since the moment I decided to create Polli and Nate the Crochet Bee Free Pattern I have wanted to add on a honeycomb somehow. This was very challenging but today I finished this and I couldn’t be more proud of it! My kids love to play pretend and have been carrying the bumblebees I made and now have requested several more honeycomb holders, uh-oh lol. I was going to initially turn this into a children’s purse and it would be super cute to do one day, feel free to transform it into a bag if you wish. But hanging it on the wall in the kid’s playroom or bedroom seems more fitting for them so they can store them away and look so cute as a decor item and I love that! 

I hope you enjoy making this pattern as well! Find me on social media and tag me @arianaehall so I can see your makes and share them!

Happy Crocheting!

Materials:
  • 5.00mm crochet hook for the honeycomb and the flower

  • Two different colors for the flower, center, and for the petals (optional)
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors
  • Stitch markers ( if you are a beginner I recommend using them on the last and first st you made to keep track) 2
Abbreviations:

Stitches:

CHchain

ST – stitch (stitch space)

Sl Stslip stitch

SC – single crochet

Read Before beginning:
  • TENSION – I crochet yarning under then Over to create a tighter stitch, It’s optional this is second nature to me from making amigurumi. Go down a hook size if needed if tension is too loose. ( my tension is naturally tight) **sizes may vary depending on tension. 
  • You will be working in rows.
  • The flower is optional. I think it adds a cute little touch.
  • Finished product measures – 7 inches across from point to point and 6 inches tall.
Pin for later. 🙂

Assembly 

Now that you have made two hexagons. Lay them right side together, you will start sewing using the whip stitch starting from the 11th row down from the top. Sew Along and check to make sure it’s even on the other side and adjust as needed.

Strap Holder (Image #4) – Slip stitch in the top left corner of the back piece, Chain 18, slip stitch in the other corner, fasten off. Secure with knots and weave in the ends.

Fold the front down aligned with where you started sewing. Sew the edge so it stays down. I used a flower and sewed through all the way and had that help hold the flap down.

Make 2, Sew from side to side, Chain 18 for the strap.
Flower on the flap down.
