Queen Bee-Hive Doll – Crochet Pattern

Queen Bee-Hive Doll - Crochet Pattern

Spring has finally arrived! And nothing says spring like bees. So that got me thinking of an adorable bee doll. This doll, though, isn’t only a bee, she also transforms into a bee-hive. Of course, just like all my other topsy-turvy dolls, she flips into another form. Make her as the Queen Bee herself or one of the worker bees, either way, she’ll be adorable.


  • Worsted weight yarn in skin color, yellow, black, white, and a small amount of random colors and green for flowers and leaves(flowers are optional).
    (I use Hobby Lobby’s I love this Cotton!)
  • Small amount of embroidery floss for smile and eyelashes (optional).
  • Size H (5.0mm) Crochet Hook(used for beehive)
  • Size G (4.0mm) Crochet Hook (used for most of doll)

  • 6mm safety eyes
