We had such a fantastic Halloween, and I wanted to share all of our costume pieces in one blog post. Below you will see each piece that I crocheted and links to their crochet patterns. Simply click the image or the title of each pattern to go to its pattern.
Here is our little Bee Family Photo!
For my Bee Hive costume, I made one large spiral using Lion Brand Basic Stitch yarn.
I do not have a crochet pattern for this, however, at the very bottom of this blog post, I will share a mini “recipe” of how I created this beehive.
I added mini Felt Bees that I purchased on Amazon. You can get them here.
For Nate’s costume, I purchased a Bee Keeper Outfit on Amazon. You can find it here.
I also used some Tulle from the fabric shop and added it to the Honey Bee Sunhat that I made for his costume. I added the same Felt Bees to his hat with floral wire.
On Nasir’s Costume, I share all the components of his costume in this blog post here. I made the wings out of Nylons and coat hangers. I have a FREE crochet pattern and video tutorial for his whole outfit. It’s called the Baby Bee Costume and you can find it here.
This Baby Bee was *SO* done after our photo shoot!
Thank you for another fabulous year of costumes!
Below you will find information about the Large Bee Hive costume that I am wearing:
For the body and hat:
Work in continuous rounds
HDC in 1st Ch to form a ring, and in the next 23 chs, SC in last 11 chs.
Then I just HDC’d in each HDC st and SC’d in each SC st until it formed a spiral. I stuffed this tube as I went.
I did the same exact thing for my hat. I made 4 spirals for the body and 3 spirals for the hat.
I sewed the beginning and end of the tube and sewed it together in the shape of a beehive.
For the straps, I just did a row of 50 double crochet stitches to make a basic strap and sewed it in on the inside of the bee hive.
I hope this gives you a good idea of how I made the bee hive. If you are interested in making it and have questions, feel free to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I can help you as best as I can!!
