This hat is knitted bottom up with a twisted knits ribbing and Irish moss stitch. The yarn is amazingly soft, and its color, together with the bumpy Irish moss stitch, made me think of bees covered in pollen, hence the name.

The size is an average adult, unisex. Can be worn either folded or not, not folded gives a bit of a slouchy hat.
Measured flat: width: 23 cm, height: 26 cm, 21 cm folded.

Yarn: Cascade Yarns, Forest Hills, silk 51%, merino wool 49%, color no. 9 nugget gold. 717.5 = 100 g.
The yarn is held double.
About 50 g (360m) was used for the hat in the pictures.
