Mannequin Monday – Beehive

 

Hey, hey, hey! It’s Mannequin Monday!

And today’s pick is…

Beehive, designed by Jill Zielinski.

Here is an infinity scarf, worked in two colors that take turns being front and center! Shown in Plucky Crew, Beehive is the perfect place to pair any two colors that make you smile. You might choose two complimentary colors for a classic look, or maybe two colors that are a totally unexpected for a POP like shown above in Sounds Like A Carnival and Before You Go-Go.

The second sample shown here is knit in Snug Fingering in colors Happy Camper and Fancy Free. How fun!

Wondering what to do with the left over yarn from your Beehive? How about a Beehive Ox!?

Of course our four footed friends want to look stylish too! Instructions for this glamorous accessory are included as a bonus pattern bundled with the Beehive infinity pattern. It is easily worked with the left overs from your Beehive infinity scarf, in a size that will look terrific on your best friend!

Beehive Ox shown knit in Oxford in colors Flannel and Highlighter.

Note: When you purchase the Beehive pattern, the Beehive Ox pattern comes with it and is found on the back page.
