Whatโ€™s all the Buzz about??? ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ

A bee-utiful crescent shawl designed to keep even a Queen Bee buzzing with excitement. This shawl mixes Bee themed stitches together to produce a plump and squishy sweet as honey texture. These fun stitches will make you a busy bee as you buzz along into the Honeycomb Edging that provides just the right amount of flair and drama making this a honey of a shawl to knit! ๐Ÿฏ



This shawl was inspired by a skein of Weathervane in Super Silky, which I couldnโ€™t put down during a visit to my favorite LYS Knitworks Yarn Company while grabbing yarn for another project. The soft cream color is delicately sprinkled with hints of gold and orange and I couldnโ€™t put it down. I immediately started a swatch trying out the Honeycomb Stitch and found it was the perfect match! It was then the idea to use only bee-related stitches and was buzzing around my head!!!
