I am looking for a crochet bee slipper pattern for toddlers – adult?
Hi Nancy! I’m afraid I haven’t seen anything quite like that. But you could certainly take a plain slipper pattern and work the rows in black and yellow stripes!
LOVE that bee lovey! And I just finished the lion one I was making too! I think I’ll add the Bee Hives and Clover block to my blanket from the CAL. Love that square ;). And that backpack! No need to say why I love THAT 🙂 It is cute as can “bee” 🙂
😀 Thanks so much Carrie! It was such a fun roundup to put together. I would’ve loved to add that block to the CAL too – so pretty!

Están preciosos los trabajos quisiera poder realizar los pensamientos. Como puedo obtener los diagramas para realizarlos gracias bendiciones.
Quisiera hacer un proyecto con el motivo Bee Hives and Clover Afghan Block pero se me dificulta la traducción del inglés al español y prefiero los diagramas. Si alguien tiene el diagrama o esquema agradezco que me lo puedan facilitar o indicar dónde puedo encontrarlo. Muchas gracias
Entiendo! La mejor recomendación que puedo hacer es ponerse en contacto con el diseñador – ella podría ser capaz de armar algo para usted!
Is there anyway to get the antennas to stand up ???
Thank you !!!
You can crochet over pipe cleaners! 🙂
Thank you. I took a “G” crpchet hook and shortened my chain to 15 and followed the pattern and that worked well also !!!

Thanks for the links ive made 3busy bee backpack.. for my kids i enjoyed doing it also….God bless
🙂 You’re very welcome Rosalie!
When I went to the afghan square it was not free. What happened?
Looks like the designer changed it to paid, sorry about that!
I’ve just been over to Ravelry to the Bee Hives and Clover Afghan Block – it doesn’t seem to be free any more. (I’m not complaining, just informing. ) 🙂
Ah, she must have changed it, thanks Andria!
I’m not long at crocheting. I started it so that I could make my new granddaughter something different.
I’m getting on fairly well but I have just been asked to make a Bumble Bee for a friend.
The patterns here are great but I was just worried on one pointed. In all the tutorials I’ve looked at, they have said to stay away from black wool as it’s almost impossible to find the links (loops). Before I buy some black, is it so difficult? I found dark navy daunting.
It can be very tricky, it’s true – but a bright light, like an OttLite, is a bit help! With my Ottlite, I don’t have nearly so much trouble, even with black. 🙂
Thank you for your swift reply, I think I’ll give it a go.
Hi, I have just seen the bee blanket link, it states its UK terms but after downloading find it is US e.g. SC 🙁
Oh how strange! Do you need a conversion table?
