I love the slightly confused look on the face of the bee hat !.
Another novelty creation which I have to admit are my favourite items to make. This pattern can be modified to fit any age.
dk yarn, YELLOW, WHITE AND BLACK.
dc - double crochet
sl st - slip stitch
ch - chain
st - stitch
sc - single crochet
NOTE: JOIN EACH ROUND TO 1ST DC NOT STARTING CHAIN.
I CARRIED THE YARN UP THE HAT THROUGHOUT AS I DIDN'T FEEL THE NEED TO FASTEN OFF AT THE END OF EACH ROW.

ANTENNA (make 2)
Using black, ch17, slst in 2nd ch from hook and in remainding chs to end, in the last ch work a multiple of sc stitches to optain rounded shape. fasten off.
Attach eyes to front of the hat, I left a row of yellow to give room for the mouth.
Sew on a mouth using black and create a zigzag effect or whichever suits you.
Attach the antennas evenly to the top of the hat.
