Patterns & Stitch Markers that are the Bees’ Knees

It’s no secret, I love bees. Like, really love them. As a child, there was a hive in my dresser and we lived in harmony until my parents heard about my roommates. It is also one of the few things I’ve never been allergic to. I was stung by nine at once (they got in my car!) with no reaction, so I count myself very lucky. If I see someone with a bee on them, I gently take it off and relocate the bee, knowing not everyone feels like I do.

So, it is long overdue to write a post about all the fab bee patterns. I’ll also mention some knitting-related (and a few crochet) bee items that I have too because why not?

Honeycomb Tea Cosy knitting pattern from #BakeKnitSew is a quick knit two colorways of with Aran weight yarn.
