Did you know that “Apiculture” is a fancy science word for Beekeeping? Honey bees are amazing creatures. They give us honey, wax, and bees pollinate about 75% of our fruits, nuts and vegetables! Make a hat that is both cute and honors these awesome little insects in some fun stranded colorwork. The crown of this hat incorporates the colorwork so the honeycomb morphs into a flower towards the top of the head, it’s the circle of life. I am a beekeeper myself, we have two hives in our backyard.
