Bumble Bee Hat Knitting Pattern

March 13, 2018

My little guy has been obsessed with insects lately. When I asked him what kind of hat I should knit him, his answer was (of course) “Bugs!”…so here it is, the Bumble Bee Hat Knitting Pattern! I wanted to make an insect themed hat that was still cute, so I thought a bumble bee would be perfect. Plus, with Spring just around the corner it felt appropriate.

This hat features wide stripes and a rolled brim. The antenna are knit separately and then stitched on.
