This pattern is a knit & felt design.
In the olden days, beehive skeps were baskets made of grass or straw. They were used for housing a colony of bees as they produced their honeycomb. Knit and felt a whimsical 3-1/2 or 5-inch beehive as a tribute to the hardest worker out there - the honey bee!

The woolly beehive skep pattern comes with a complimentary recipe: HONEY BUTTER
worsted weight felt able yarn, size 10-1/2 or 13 double points and 16-inch circular needle, polyester fiberfill, plastic poly-pellets, embroidery floss
