Bee hive is an interesting beret with ridges making circles that grow and shrink with the hat. The gold one reminded me of a bee hive while I was making it, hence the name. The stitch pattern seems somewhat complicated at first but has a nice rhythm once practiced.

The pattern has two sizes and is worked in the round.
