Bee Top is worked in the Tunisian crochet entrelac technique. Each element of the top is small enough to place all of your stitches on a regular crochet hook. The top is worked from the bottom up, starting at the side. No seaming is required.

The pattern assumes basic familiarity with Tunisian crochet, specifically how each row is worked as two separate passes and how to work the Tunisian simple stitch and the Tunisian purl stitch.
