Okay, this is one of those knits that is so cute you just want to run out and stick a baby in it. I'm a bit of a sucker for rompers anyway, but this honeybee romper just rocks cuteness!
It's also one of those knits that I look at and think, "Wow, I really made that just out of two needles and some yarn?!" And, of course, with the help of the amazing designer who came up with just how to manipulate that string to make it turn into this.
It's also the kind of knit that makes non-knitters look at you with new respect. It's also the kind of knit I can't wait to see unwrapped at the baby shower. Can you hear all the women squealing now?
The pattern consists of the romper and a matching hat and booties to complete the set. I knit it up using Cascade Avalon (yellow), Berroco Comfort DK (brown) and Tahki white Cotton Dk. I used 3.25m and 3.5 m. needles. The wings on the bees are made from organza ribbon.
It's a fairly simple, straightforward pattern knit on straight needles so there's some seaming involved and of course a little embroidery to create the bee line on romper and bonnet.
And if you think it's cute now, just wait until you see it on the baby! Bee still my heart.
