I love bumble bees, I’m mildly obsessed with them in fact, and I love Pushing Daisies so I thought that I would crochet myself a scarf that I felt really encapsulated the whimsical beauty of both my love for bees and my favorite TV show.
. I have literally been “working” on this project for an age. You’ll remember when I posted about having to create my own ‘hexagonal crochet pattern’ and going on a quest for the perfect yarn, well this project has been in the making since then. I had the idea for it, but then had to figure out the perfect way to execute it, which was the hard part.
Luckily for you guys, this project is incredibly easy, though a bit time consuming. You don’t really need to have any special knowledge, tools or skills because this pattern utilizes only basic crochet stitches.

Hexagonal Motif Pattern
Ch 4, sl st in first chain to form a ring
Row 1: Ch 3, act as first dc, dc 12 more times into ring, sl st to join (might have to skip a st*)
Row 2: Ch 3, Inc all around, sl st to ch 3 space (24 st)
Row 3: Ch 3, *dc in next 3 st, then 3 dc in next st* repeat all around, sl st to ch 3 space (36 st)
Row 4: Ch 3, *dc in next 5 st, then 3 dc in next st* repeat all around, sl st to ch 3 space ( 48 st)
Row 5: Ch 3, *dc in next 7 st, then (1 dc, 1 tc, 1 dc) in next st* repeat all around, sl st to ch 3 space, break off and weave in ends (60 st)
Border: Taking your black yarn, create a border all the way around the hexagon by sc in each stitch until you come to a tc corner, then I recommend doing 2 sc in the tc space, this helps to emphasize the tc and gives the corner a good edge. Break off and either leave a long tail to sew the hexagons together or break off and weave in ends.
Construction: You can either sew the pieces together with your long tail or you can weave in those ends and crochet all of the pieces together with more black yarn to give your scarf a little more length. That’s what I did. I also recommend sewing everything together where you broke off, because there will be a bit of a dip in the pattern, due to the joining of the black yarn. If you crochet over it then it won’t be visible.
