This hat is perfect for the bee lovers in your life. I designed this hat to fit adults, but if you would like to make it smaller, you could easily leave out a bee repeat and start decreasing earlier.

I designed this hat to alternate black and yellow as the contrast color, so there is only colorwork using 2 different colors at a time. You will still want to make sure to wrap the non-worked color under the working color behind the work every 2-3 stitches during the longer carries to make sure there is sufficient stretch in the piece.
